Amendola (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Patriots. Amendola -- who was limited at practice this past week -- will be out there Sunday, as expected. He's been pushing to play in a key game in terms of 6-6 Miami's playoff hopes, a matchup that offers the veteran slot man the added incentive of a chance to make some noise against the team he played for from 2013 through 2017. Over his 11 games this season, Amendola leads the Dolphins with 48 catches for 469 yards, numbers that reflect the team's low-octane passing game, but assuming no setbacks, he should see enough targets in Sunday's home tilt to merit a lineup spot in deeper leagues, particularly PPR formats.
Amendola (knee) remained limited at Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports. Amendola was held out of last week's win over the Bills and still hasn't logged a full practice, but multiple reports have suggested he'll fight through the knee injury to get a crack at his former team. Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post believes Amendola is on track to play after practicing in a limited capacity three consecutive days. The Dolphins and Patriots are scheduled for a 1 p.m. EST kickoff in Miami.
Amendola (knee) practiced once again Thursday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Amendola evidently avoided any setbacks at Wednesday's practice and is "on pace" to play against the Patriots on Sunday, barring any setbacks. We'll have to see if he ends up with a "questionable" designation for that contest or is removed from the squad's injury report Friday, but Miami's leading receiver is unsurprisingly pushing to play against his former team, in any case.
Amendola (knee) was a limited practice participant Wednesday. Per Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post, coach Adam Gase notes that Amendola "wants to play [Sunday against the Patriots] as bad as anybody." The receiver's desire to face one of his former teams is understandable, especially with the 6-6 Dolphins still clawing for a playoff spot.
Amendola (knee) was spotted at practice Wednesday, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. An update on Amendola's status will come once the Dolphins release their first practice report of the week later Wednesday, but his return to the field -- in any capacity -- signals that he has a chance to suit up Sunday against the Patriots.
