Another week, another key offensive weapon is out for the Patriots.
Tom Curran of CSN New England, confirming a report from Steve Burton of WBZ, says that receiver Danny Amendola won’t play on Sunday night in Denver.
If, as expected, Amendola doesn’t travel to Colorado, the Patriots will be (or at least should be) issuing an updated injury report downgrading Amendola from questionable to out.
Amendola injured his knee on Monday night against the Bills. He had become the primary replacement for Julian Edelman, who had broken a bone in his foot the prior Sunday against the Giants. A week before that, the Patriots lost running back Dion Lewis for the year with a torn ACL.
The Patriots also recently put receiver Aaron Dobson on injured reserve, leaving them very thin at the position. Brandon LaFell looks to be Tom Brady's top targets in Week 12, and it could also mean we see more Keshawn Martin, but Martin has been inactive in recent weeks. Chris Harper and Matt Slater are next up on the depth chart.
