New England Patriots wide receiver was listed as limited during Thursday's practice session. Amendola has been dealing with a groin injury the past two weeks and missed some practice sessions in that time. He says that he should be fine for Sunday's opener against the Buffalo Bills.
Amendola has struggled with injuries throughout his NFL career. He missed 20 games over the past two seasons. Amendola has played 16 games just once in 2010, recording 85 catches for 689 yards and three touchdowns.
Fantasy impact: Amendola's durability is a legitimate concern, but this doesn't like anything serious. He should be ready to go Sunday and is locked in as Tom Brady's top weapon. Amendola will run as a WR2 in fantasy circles, with more value in PPR leagues. If he can stay healthy, Amendola has the talent to quickly make Patriots fans forget Wes Welker, who signed with the Denver Broncos in the offseason.
