Rams WR Amendola placed on IR

Yahoo! - [Full Article]

Receiver Danny Amendola and cornerback Bradley Fletcher will miss the rest of the season for the winless St. Louis Rams.

Amendola was to have surgery Thursday for the left elbow he dislocated in the season opener.

Amendola led the team with 85 receptions last season. The Rams had been hopeful he'd return after the team's bye week. But he had a setback in his rehab and got a second medical opinion on Wednesday in Dallas.

Fantasy Impact: 

It's obviously safe to drop Amendola if you were stashing him away and waiting for his return. Mark Clayton makes an interesting speculative add. Clayton could return to the Rams lineup in week 7.
