New England Patriots No. 1 WR Danny Amendola is set to make his return from a second injury this season, as he was able to attend every practice session this week. Amendola missed last week’s loss against the New York Jets after suffering a nasty concussion the week before against the New Orleans Saints, and it’s definitely to see Amendola back already. It wouldn’t have surprised me if Amendola was bounced out for a couple of more weeks, because that concussion looked downright awful. But Amendola has done a great job of practicing this week, and he told reporters today that he is “ready to go”. While he obviously didn’t make any guarantees on his playing status, I think it’s safe to pencil in Amendola as a starter for this week’s key division game against the Miami Dolphins.
According to ESPN Boston’s Mike Reiss, Danny Amendola has passed all the required concussion tests this week, and he was tested by both team and independent doctors. He sounds like a full go against the Dolphins, which is a recipe for success. With Tom Brady throwing him the ball, the targets will come for Amendola, who is a solid fantasy option this week.
Here’s what Amendola said about the tests he took, ”I’ve done pretty much everything they’ve asked me to do. I’m healthy and I’m ready to play.”
