Danny AmendolaNE -WRAmendola will play Week 8
NFL Network's Albert Breer confirms that Patriots WR Danny Amendola (concussion) has been cleared and will play against the Dolphins on Sunday. Sitting out last week should have that pesky groin injury closer to 100%, too. Amendola should be available for a full slate of snaps, making him a strong fantasy option.
Danny AmendolaNE -WRAmendola "ready to go" for Week 8
Patriots WR Danny Amendola (concussion) said Friday that he's "ready to go" for this weekend's game against the Dolphins. He practiced all week without a setback.

Danny AmendolaNE -WRAmendola back at practice
Patriots WR Danny Amendola (concussion) returned to practice on Wednesday. It doesn't necessarily mean he's been cleared for game action, but he's at least progressing in that direction.

Danny AmendolaNE -WRNo timetable for Amendola's return
Patriots WR Danny Amendola (concussion) has no timetable for return, according to insider Tom Curran. That's not surprising since we're dealing with New England.

Danny AmendolaNE -WRAmendola ruled out for Week 7
As expected, Patriots WR Danny Amendola (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets. He hasn't even been cleared to practice yet and should be considered iffy for Week 8. WR Julian Edelman will step back into the slot role. He's a solid WR3, even with TE Rob Gronkowski expected back this week.
Danny AmendolaNE -WRAmendola out Wednesday
Patriots WR Danny Amendola did not practice on Wednesday. He left last weekend's game with what was believed to be a concussion. Of course, the Patriots haven't updated his status. Amendola appeared to be knocked out on the field, though, so he seems like a long shot to gain medical clearance ahead of Sunday's game against the Jets.
Danny AmendolaNE -WRAmendola suffers head injury
Patriots WR Danny Amendola took a helmet-to-helmet hit on an end-around in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game. He was down for about a minute and was clearly woozy walking off the field. He'll undergo concussion testing and is likely done for the day.
Danny AmendolaNE -WRAmendola active
Patriots WR Danny Amendola (groin) is officially active for today’s game against the Bengals. His snaps are expected to be limited in his 1st game since Week 1, so Amendola is a risk/reward fantasy option. We are hearing that he looked good in pregame warmups, though.
Danny AmendolaNE -WRSloppy conditions for Patriots-Bengals
The weather forecast for this afternoon's Patriots-Bengals game calls for 50% chance of rain and 14 mph winds. It's been raining all morning, so the field will likely be sloppy. It's not enough to downgrade either team's passing game, but we wonder how the field conditions will impact WR Danny Amendola's usage. Amendola is a risk/reward fantasy option for Week 5. Click here to see where he sits in our rankings.
Danny AmendolaNE -WRAmendola's Week 5 snaps to be limited
FOX Sports' Jay Glazer confirms that Patriots WR Danny Amendola (groin) is expected to play today, but adds that the team is "planning to limit his reps." That's not a surprise considering Amendola's injury history -- and the fact that this will be his 1st action since Week 1. It's also worth noting that Amendola went for 10 catches and 104 yards despite playing just 62% of the snaps in the opener. We'd expect him to play at least that much against the Bengals today.
Danny AmendolaNE -WRPatriots believe Amendola will play Week 5
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that the Patriots "hope and believe" WR Danny Amendola (groin) will play against the Bengals today. That's been the general consensus throughout the week, although a final decision won't be made until after pregame warmups. Check back around noon ET for Amendola's official status. He'll be a risk/reward WR2 if active.
Danny AmendolaNE -WRAmendola ready to go?
Pats insider Jeff Howe passes along word that the team “remains highly optimistic” about WR Danny Amendola (groin). Howe also notes that New England is “highly pessimistic” about the status of TE Rob Gronkowski. This has been the general theme all week. Gronk is poised for a Week 6 return. Meanwhile, Amendola is trending towards being active, though his workload is very much in question. Fortunately, we’ll know before lineups lock if he plays because of a 1PM start time (at Cincinnati). Consider Amendola a WR3 if he suits up.
Danny AmendolaNE -WRAmendola questionable for Week 5
WR Danny Amendola (groin) remained limited in practice this week and is listed
as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Bengals. He made progress this week, though, and there’s
optimism that he’ll play. “Had a good
day today,” Amendola said Friday. “Had a good practice, ran around, made some
plays and looking forward to Sunday, so we’ll see.” A final decision won’t be made until pregame
warmups, but we’ll find out by noon ET.
Amendola will be worth getting into fantasy lineups if he’s active.
Danny AmendolaNE -WRAmendola: "I feel good"
Patriots WR Danny Amendola (groin) remained limited in Wednesday's practice. But it was upbeat about his progress afterward. "So far, so good this week. I feel good," he said. "I felt good today. I’ll know more tomorrow and we’ll go from there ... Every day is getting better. [I'm] working hard and just trying to get back out there as quickly as possible.” Amendola added that pain isn't as much an issue as "getting strength where you need it." It sounds like he's in the final stages of his recovery. "Signs continue to point to his return for Sunday's game against the Bengals in Cincinnati," insider Mike Reiss writes. We probably won't know Amendola's official status until inactives come on Sunday, but it's a 1 pm ET start so fantasy owners will have time to adjust lineups.
Danny AmendolaNE -WRAmendola has a "good chance" to play Week 5
Patriots insider Mike Reiss hears WR Danny Amendola (groin) has a "good chance" to return for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Amendola reportedly made good progress last week.

Danny AmendolaNE -WRAmendola "hopeful" for Week 5
NFL Network's Albert Breer reports that Patriots WR Danny Amendola (groin) is "hopeful" to return for Week 5. Breer adds that Amendola "never had a real shot" to play against the Falcons tonight. That makes us less optimistic about his chances of returning next week. Week 6 might be a more realistic target. New England could get Amendola and TE Rob Gronkowski back for that week's game against the Saints.
