Nearly three weeks ago, Rams receiver Danny Amendola suffered a collarbone injury that entailed actual separation of the bone from the joint. As Jay Glazer of FOX reported at the time, the bone went inward — a rare and potentially life-threatening condition that required surgery to repair.
Amazingly, Amendola already is back at practice. Per Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com, coach Jeff Fisher said on a conference call that Amendola practiced on a limited basis as the team prepares to face the Patriots in London.
It’s unclear when Amendola will be able to play. He had become a key component in the St. Louis offense, a slot receiver who was repeatedly beating coverage from Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson before Amendola suffered his injury.
Amendola is due to become a free agent in March, and it’s widely believed that the Rams’ opponent at Wembley Stadium will be one of the most aggressive suitors, if Amendola hits the market.
