When the New England Patriots signed Danny Amendola this
offseason, many viewed him as the next Wes Welker with Tom Brady at the helm.
While Amendola posted solid totals when he was on the field in St. Louis, he’s
missed significant time over the years due to several injuries. Amendola
apparently still has some of that injury-proneness in him, as he missed
practice on Monday with an undisclosed ailment, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN
Bill Belichick on Danny Amendola: "Day to day." Amendola wasn't at practice Monday.

Head coach Bill Belichick was as forthcoming as ever when
asked about Amendola’s status. All he would tell reporters was that the wide
receiver is day to day with his injury, which Belichick didn’t provide details
Considering there’s so little info on the injury, Reiss
doesn’t believe it’s a major concern. However, when it comes to Amendola, we’ve
seen injuries pile up in the past. It’s are to avoid bumps and bruises during the
season, but it will be interesting to see how many games Amendola is able to
suit up for, and how many vague press conferences Belichick has to offer to
explain his absence.
