Found September 13, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
New England Patriots wide receiver, Danny Amendola, put in a memorable performance Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills and it now appears he will have a few weeks to think about it while New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski’s return is approaching.Chris Wesseling of reports that Amendola could miss up to six weeks with his injured groin.  This should be no surprise to anyone.Please, do not shed a tear for the Patriots.  The Pats knew what type of potatoes they were buying when they bagged Amendola; a solid WR who can catch the ball and will go all out for 60 minutes every game day.  They knew Amendola was tough, but they also knew he was injury prone.  They knew it, I knew it, Patriots Nation knew it, heck even my wife knew it and it must be in your face obvious if my wife notices it because in 11 years of marriage she still cannot find the kitchen.The Patriots already knew Amendola had trouble going 16 rounds so they should be the least surprised out of all of us to the predictable quandary they knew their team would be in when they signed Amendola.With the prognosis for Amendola’s return looking forlorn, the news surrounding TE, Rob Gronkowski, is more encouraging.  Wesseling also reports that Gronkowski, who has been battling back and forearm injuries, could be ready to go Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (certainly by Week 4).  This seems to make the most sense because the Patriots chose not to place Gronkowski on the injured reserve designated for return list meaning they anticipated Gronk would be back sometime before Week 7.  With 10 days between the Jets and Bucs game, Gronk should have enough time to prepare himself to be ready to go Week 3.  Otherwise, why keep him off the IR-DFR list and waste a roster spot on someone who could help the team win.The return of Gronkowski will help a Patriots’ offense that cannot get out of its own way.  However, the question still surrounds Gronkowski if he can get into the later rounds as well.You can follow me on twitter @TheSoftParade69Talk football talk cigars talk anything, I know a little about a lot.Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
