As expected, the Patriots will be kicking off the season at Gillette stadium without their best offensive weapon.
Danny Amendola has struggled with a groin issue since preseason. He played through it on Sunday, which is likely the reason he will be sitting out the game tomorrow against the Jets.
As expected, the Patriots list both Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola as doubtful to play on Thursday.

Rob Gronkowski is also doubtful as he recovers from back surgery. He's not due back until week 4 or 5 at the earliest. Amendola can likely return next week.
While it's best to leave these two on the bench as they recover, it puts the Patriots in a tough spot going up against a still dangerous Jets defense.
The top receiver for the Patriots will be Julian Edelman. A seventh round quarterback turned receiver turned cornerback turned receiver again. Edelman had seven catches and two touchdowns in the team's season opener.

Still, the young squad will miss one of their own in WR Jeremy Kerley, who will sit out due to a concussion sustained in Week 1. Welcome to Foxboro.
