The New England Patriots released their Monday practice report and wide receiver Danny Amendola was limited in practice with a groin injury. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

The New England Patriots released their Monday practice report and listed wide receiver Danny Amendola as a limited participant in practice. The Patriots are required by NFL rules to release their injury report two days early in light of Thursday night's game, and fantasy owners should keep an eye on his status.

Amendola left Sunday's season opener against the Buffalo Bills in the second quarter with a groin injury, but returned in the second half to finish the game. Amendola's injury has his status for Thursday night's game against the New York Jets up in the air, although it appears likely he will play at this point. Given Amendola's injury history, fantasy owners will need to watch this situation closely.

Fantasy impact: Amendola owners should keep an eye on his status, but at this point there is every reason to believe he will play. Amendola posted 10 receptions for 104 yards in Sunday's season opener against the Buffalo Bills. He will face a Jets defense that early returns suggests has returned to its stout ways. The Jets are currently eighth in the league in passing defense, having allowed only 185 passing yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 1. It appears Amendola is likely to play and should be a solid start in any fantasy league.
