Danny Amendola Not Expected to Miss Significant Time


On Monday night, the New England Patriots kept their undefeated season alive with a 20-13 win over the division rival Buffalo Bills, but it appeared to come at a cost.

Already missing Tom Brady’s favourite target in Julian Edelman, and the out-of-nowhere talents of running back Dion Lewis, the team also lost Danny Amendola to a knee injury, but recent reports suggest that the wide receiver is not expected to be out for the long term.

Amendola’s knee sprain is being called a “week-to-week injury,” with many being quick to note that he has yet to even be officially ruled out from this Sunday night’s game.

Should Amendola not be able to go in time for this week’s blockbuster clash with the Brock Osweiler-led Denver Broncos, there could be very real cause for concern that the Pats’ 10-0 record may suffer its first blemish.

Outside of Brady, just about the only reliable face on New England’s offense is Rob Gronkowski. Although valiant in defeat last night, the Bills’ defense unveiled a blueprint to beating the world champions, taking advantage of Brady’s lack of weapons and sending pressure his way all night.

It’s a strategy the Broncos’ elite defenders will be only too happy to copy if it means slowing down the game and not forcing Osweiler into a game of catch-up.

The fact that both Amendola and Edelman will be fighting fit for the playoffs should quieten the rumblings that New England is looking into giving NFL legend  Randy Moss a tryout. But this is Bill Belichick we’re talking about. Until the team takes the field sans-#81, expect nothing and suspect everything.
