Rams WR Danny Amendola Out 6-7 Weeks

Adam Caplan reports that Rams WR Danny Amendola has a dislocated clavicle and is expected to miss 6-7 weeks.

The good news here is that it’s not a season-ending injury and the Rams will get their best receiver back later in the season. It’s going to be hard for them find an adequate replacement and remain in the hunt for a playoff spot, but their running game has shown some signs of improvement, so they could lean on players like Steven Jackson and Daryl Richardson in the coming weeks.

The Rams may give Steve Smith or Austin Pettis a shot at filling Amendola’s role in their offense.

St Louis Rams GM Les Snead mentioned that WR Danny Amendola does not appear to have broken his clavicle and believes that he will be able to return at some point this season, via ESPN.com.

Snead added that they will know more later Friday afternoon when more tests are completed.

Initially it was believed that Amendola would be out 4-6 weeks, but that could also change.

Pro Football Talk reports that a team source has informed them that WR Danny Amendola does in fact have a broken collarbone.

Jason La Canfora tweets that the Rams are concerned that WR Danny Amendola suffered a broken collarbone and could be out for an extended period of time.

Amendola fell on his shoulder while trying to pull in a pretty tough catch during Thursday night’s game. He whipped his helmet against the wall while heading to the Rams locker room. Considering that Amendola has dealt with a rash of injuries in the past and is currently in a contract year, this is hardly what he and Rams were hoping for this season. When healthy, he’s clearly a difference-maker on the field.

We’ll have more updates as the news is available.

I agree with you. Seeing him with a sling isn’t a good sign. Hopefully just a coupe of weeks.
