Danny Amendola injury update: Rams receiver expected to be OUT against Patriots, according to report

Dilip Vishwanat

The Rams got a surprise with Danny Amendola even being a possibility this soon, but he will not play on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola was to test his injured shoulder before the game in London against the Patriots, but he will be inactive and not play on Sunday. Amendola suffered a clavicle injury in Week 5 and has been expected to be out for quite some time, so just the possibility that he could have returned in Week 8 is surprising.

Sam Bradford's favorite target has 32 catches for 395 yards in five games.

Fantasy Take: Amendola is an excellent fantasy option when healthy but this would have been like an extra Christmas present that you are allowed to open on Dec. 23. He has a special brace that could have allowed him to return early, but now his earliest return date is Week 10 against the 49ers, as St. Louis has a bye next week.
