Amendola (concussion/knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice. The Patriots' injury report is looking pretty robust this week, with nine players limited Wednesday and three listed as non-participants. Also limited Wednesday were fellow wideouts Phillip Dorsett and Chris Hogan, who were both dinged up in Week 2. As for Amendola, his return to the practice field bodes well for his status for Sunday's game against the Texans and if he is able to return to action this weekend, he'd be in line to see some Tom Brady targets out of the slot, thus making him of interest in PPR formats.
Amendola has been cleared from the NFL's concussion protocol, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. Amendola, who was forced out of the Patriots' season opener against the Chiefs in the second half, was thus able to participate in practice Wednesday. An official update on Amendola's status should be providing later in the day to detail the extent of his participation in practice. The report should also help clarify whether or not the wideout is still dealing with a knee issue, as was the case last week.
Amendola (concussion/knee) was present for practice Wednesday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. The Patriots should provide an update later Wednesday regarding the extent of Amendola's participation level in practice. The wideout's presence on the field in any capacity nonetheless bodes well for his chances of returning to action Sunday against the Texans after sitting out the Patriots' Week 2 victory over the Saints.
Amendola (concussion/knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints. With Amendola out and PPR stalwart Julian Edelman on IR, Brandin Cooks and Chris Hogan are on track to head the Patriots' Week 2 wideout corps, with Phillip Dorsett a candidate to see added snaps in his second regular-season game in a New England uniform. With the team's two top slot wideouts unavailable, it's also conceivable that the Patriots' tight ends and running backs could pick up some added targets in the passing game Sunday.
Amendola (concussion/knee) was not spotted at Friday's practice, according to Brad Almquist of the Boston Globe. It's not clear where Amendola stands in the concussion protocol, but he was not able to practice at all this week, so his chances of playing in Week 2 are not looking promising. The Patriots will provide an official update on Amendola's status when they release their final injury report of the week Friday afternoon.
