Patriots WR Danny Amendola questionable for Week 1 after multiple surgeries

Boston Herald - [Full Article]

Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola is recovering from a pair of offseason surgeries that may impact the start of his 2016 season.

Amendola underwent surgery to repair the left knee that gave him considerable trouble late last season, and he also had to remove a bone spur in his ankle, according to a source. Both surgeries occurred early this offseason.

The timeline is still a concern because it’s far too early to know when Amendola will return at full strength, and the Patriots will not rush him back to the field until he is ready. There is hope Amendola will be ready in time for training camp, which begins July 27, but there’s no guarantee the 30-year-old will even be good to go for Week 1.

Fantasy Impact: 

Once healthy, Amendola will vie for snaps behind Julian Edelman and likely outside starter Chris Hogan.
