New England Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola was practicing with the team on Wednesday, according to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald. Amendola is in full pads with the rest of the team, though it's unclear if he'll be listed as a limited participant for the day's session.
Amendola sustained a serious-looking concussion in Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints. He did not practice at all last week and missed Sunday's game against the New York Jets, a loss for the Patriots. Given how bad the concussion looked, it's definitely good to see that Amendola has passed the required tests to resume football activities.
It was a padded practice, as well, so Amendola has to be cleared for some level of contact at this point. It's likely that he'll have more tests to pass before being declared eligible for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins, however.
Fantasy Impact: Amendola has only played in three games this season, and has only made a difference in one. He had two receptions for a whopping 0 yards against the Saints, 55 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals the previous week and 104 yards on 10 receptions way back in Week 1.
Fantasy owners knew what they were getting into with Amendola. Still, the potential for him beating the odds and being healthy for a few games is a good enough reason to keep him on your fantasy roster, especially as the season nears its end.
