Report: Danny Amendola Will Not Undergo Surgery

Update:

Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald reports that Patriots WR Danny Amendola will not undergo sports-hernia surgery, and could be back in a “few weeks.”

This is good news for the Pats and Amendola as it likely prevents him from missing several weeks rehabbing his groin tear. There’s a chance that may only miss another two weeks, but that’s purely speculation.

Julian Edelman figures to see a very large role in the Patriots offense for as long as Amendola is out.

Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports that Patriots WR Danny Amendola “gingerly” participated in running and receiving drills on Monday.

“Amendola has torn muscles in his groin, a source told the Herald, and it showed on the field. He could barely stride over the bags when the ball carriers worked through their agility drills, and Amendola limped to the back of the line each time.

It appears as though Amendola still has a ways to go before he’ll be able to see any meaningful action. It can’t be easy for him to try to play through this kind of injury given the position he plays in the Patriots offense. We’ll monitor his status throughout the week to see if he shows any signs of improvement, but there’s almost no chance he’ll be able to play in Week 3.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that a source has informed him that it’s “impossible” to predict how long the Patriots will be without WR Danny Amendola.

Florio’s source instead adds that Amendola’s injury is more of a “week-to-week kind of thing.

Amendola suffered the injury less than a week ago, and given that it’s a groin issue, it’s actually pretty tough to offer a concrete projection as to how long he’ll be out. Everyone heels differently, so we’ll have to see where things stand next week.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports that Patriots WR Danny Amendola could be out for as many as six weeks.

  • Rapoport specifically mentions that Amendola’s current time frame is two – six weeks.

Amendola has been dealing with a groin injury since the end of the preseason and reaggravated the injury during the Patroits Week 1 win over the Bills.

According to Peter King, Amendola has missed 21 out of 34 games dating back to 2011. It’s obviously concerning when you take into account Amendola’s injury history.

Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston “wouldn’t be surprised” if Patriots WR Danny Amendola is out until week 4.

————————–

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Patriots WR Danny Amendola will likely sit out of the Patriots Week 2 game against the Jets on Thursday.

Rapoport mentions that Amendola was battling through a groin injury in Week 1 and was constantly leaving and returning to the game.  The severity of Amendola’s groin injury remains unknown, but the team is in the process of evaluating the severity.

Should Amendola miss Thursday’s game, WR Julian Edelman figures to take on a large role in the Patriots offense. Edelman did turn in a very good week that included seven receptions for 79 yards and two touchdowns. We’ll have more as the news is available.
