Danny Amendola could miss a significant stretch of time, but it’s not yet known how long he’ll be sidelined because there are varying reports when it comes to the severity of his injury.
On Sunday, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reported that the Patriots receiver tore the adductors in his hips, but it’s unclear how long he’ll be out because doctors are split on whether he has a sports hernia. (Per Glazer, if Amendola does have a hernia, he’ll need surgery. That would keep him out between three and four weeks.)
However, that report is on the heels of a story from Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports, which said Amendola “could miss significant time” with a groin problem. That report also added that Amendola would “definitely be back this season.” LaCanfora writes, “There is no set timetable for Amendola’s return, and projecting specific weeks would be guessing, sources said, but it is being measured in weeks and not months and it’s certainly possible the slot stalwart does not play again in the first half of the season.”
Amendola was injured in the Week 1 win over the Bills, a game where he finished with 10 catches for 104 yards.
