Amendola battled through a groin injury, leaving and returning. He’s almost certain to miss Thursday. Hurts with Vereen out, Sudfeld ailing. – Ian Rapoport
Amendola has a history of missing games with injuries and he can’t escape that injury bug. The team will already be missing a couple of good players with an injury also. Rob Gronkowski also won’t be playing in this game.
The New York Jets could potentially steal this game on Thursday. The short week will help them out and there is some faith building in New York after their win on Sunday. Division games never are easy to win either.
The Patriots have to rest Amendola and make sure that he will be available later in the season. Hopefully he doesn’t miss too much time throughout the year with these little injuries.
