Danny Amendola (knee sprain) not expected to miss extended time

MassLive.com - [Full Article]

After losing key offensive players in back-to-back weeks, the New England Patriots can exhale on Tuesday afternoon.

Danny Amendola's knee injury won't sideline him for an extended period, according to CSNNE's Tom E. Curran.

Curran reports that Amendola suffered a knee sprain. His availability for Sunday night's showdown in Denver will depend on how he responds to treatment and how much his workload increases throughout the week.

Third-year receiver Aaron Dobson left with an ankle injury. According to The Herald's Jeff Howe, Dobson's X-rays came back clean, but the team is awaiting more information from the MRI.

Fantasy Impact: 

Amendola was the team's go-to receiver Monday night in Julian Edelman's absence. He caught nine passes for 117 yards before exiting in the third quarter with the knee injury. Sounds like he's headed for a game-time call on what is a Sunday night game at Denver. Owners will likely need to have a backup plan in place if counting on Amendola.
