The contract year of Rams receiver Danny Amendola has been abruptly interrupted by an injury that will knock him out of action for several weeks.

Per a team source, Amendola has a broken collarbone.

The injury came in the first half of Thursday night’s game, as Amendola dove in an effort to catch a third-down pass.  His angry reaction as he headed to the locker room, including the slamming of his helmet and the shouting of the “F” word hinted that it wasn’t a minor injury.

Amendola missed 15 games last year with a dislocated elbow.  He has 32 catches for 395 yards and two touchdowns on the season.

UPDATE 9:18 a.m. ET October 5:  After the game, conflicting accounts emerged regarding the initial diagnosis.  Here’s our new article that tries to sort it all out.
