Danny Amendola: I anticipate being 100 percent shortly

Danny Amendola AP

On Tuesday, Patriots coach Bill Belichick did the expected and offered little to reporters concerning the health of wide receiver Danny Amendola.

Amendola had his own meeting with the media on Wednesday and gave a little bit more of an idea about where things stand with the groin injury that has kept him out of the last two games. Since he will not be having sports hernia surgery, Amendola’s recovery timeline was believed to be around three weeks and the receiver said that he’s starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

“I anticipate being 100 percent shortly,” Amendola said, via Mike Petraglia of WEEI.com.

We said a bit more of an idea, not a concrete one. Petraglia reports that Amendola was “moving more comfortably” at Wednesday’s practice, although there’s not much reason to think that we’ll be getting any sense of Amendola’s chances of playing against the Falcons until later in the week or even before gametime on Sunday. At 3-0, the Patriots don’t have much need to bring Amendola back until they’re sure he’s totally ready to be back on the field.

    Soft. Should have kept Welkahh.

    Kid is gonna come back too fast because of all the talk about him. He has a serious injury.

  3. forsbergler says: Sep 25, 2013 2:06 PM

    Man Welker looked good last monday night didn’t he? Now he has 2 less TD’s than the entire Pats team. What a mistake to let him walk. Wait a second, the Pats didn’t let him walk. He couldn’t wait to get outta there. Just like previous WR to play for the Pats, i.e. Branch, Moss, Lloyd. I can’t undersatnd why WR don’t wanna play for this team. Tom Brady treats his WR awesome, ask Edleman! LOL. Amendola will be out for another couple weeks after this weeks game because of all the punishment he’s going to take. If Tom Brady ever learns to throw farther than 5 yds at a time maybe his reciever will be able to remain heathy.

    for about 20 minutes until you get hurt again

    Danny will NEVER be 100%, it’s just who he is, a oft injured, under sized WR!

    PS – Should’a kept Wes!!!!!!!!

    Shortly in Amendola time= never

    What he should have said was, “I anticipate STAYING 100 percent shortly.”

    Dude is made of cardboard, styrofoam, and Elmers glue.

    If this team fails it will be due to the arrogance of Bill Belichick saying that they didn’t need Welker or even Lloyd. As a matter of fact, he didn’t add anybody but young receivers because Tom Brady is what makes the offense go. Now Welker’s replacement can’t even stay healthy. smh.

    Good, I want to get back to yelling “OH DANNY!” The guy catches everything thrown at him.

    ______________________________________

    Maybe in 2033 or so.

    Welker this year 19 catches, 190 yards, 4 TDs, 1 fumble which was lost

    Amendola 10 catches, 104 yards, 0 TDs, 0 fumbles
    Edelman 27 catches, 201 yards, 2 TDs, 1 fumble recovered by Pats

    Yeah Welker has the extra 2 TDs but he also has the fumble that was a turnover. I’d say our 2 guys have done an admirable job in his place.

    People need to get over Welker being gone. Its not an issue.

    You do realize they offered more money to Welker then Denver, right? He just wanted a change of scenory. As for Lloyd, he turned down offers from SIX teams in order to pursue a career in acting, so I dont know where you got that he has a problem with Bellichick.

    Get educated.

    Maybe if the cheat was not such a horrid drafter NE would have talent.

    He is probably the most overrated coach in terms of the NFL draft in the history of the game. When will NE fans realize this?

  13. ken0west says: Sep 25, 2013 2:29 PM

    @ harrisonhits2

    The Welker fumble was on a punt return so not sure how its relevant in the WR discussion.

  14. doctorrustbelt says: Sep 25, 2013 2:30 PM

    The patriots offense is averaging 19 points in three games (against powerhouses Bills/Jets/Bucs).

    The patriots will have a tougher time against the Dolphins Defense and the Dolphins Offense will have an easier time against the weak patriot defense.

    It was a LAME comment when you posted it on the Manning thread about an hour ago. It’s still lame now that you have copied and pasted on this thread.

  16. scaredhitless says: Sep 25, 2013 2:32 PM

    Sorry Pats fans, your team won’t be going to the Superbowl this year with or without Amendola.

    Since 2004 they’ve only gone when the Giants have made it and I really don’t see the Giants making it this year.

  17. alphaq2 says: Sep 25, 2013 2:32 PM

    Ironic headline…How long can he stay 100%. It’s too bad, he really is a talented receiver.

  18. azarkhan says: Sep 25, 2013 2:39 PM

    Week 3:

    Welker: 7 receptions, 84 yards, 1 TD
    Amendola; 0 receptions, 0 yards, 0 TD

    _yes he did.

    Wait a second, the Pats didn’t let him walk. He couldn’t wait to get outta there.
    _That’s why Welker had his agents see if the Pats would match Denver’s offer? Pats let him walk kiddo.

    Just like previous WR to play for the Pats, i.e. Branch, Moss, Lloyd. I can’t undersatnd why WR don’t wanna play for this team.
    _Actually if you were to ask Branch, he would tell you of the money Seattle gave him in free agency. Same with David Givens and Tennessee. And someone already asked Moss, he has said he would come out of retirement.

    For someone so obsessed with Brady, it’s amazing how little you know. You should run your posts by your dad. Ask him to check your spelling at least. Brady is 3-0 against inferior competition with inferior weapons. Manning is 3-0 against inferior competition with a hell of an offense. Despite what the media needs to do to fill time, comparing the two qb’s stats this season is asinine.

    ”He is probably the most overrated coach as far as the NFL draft in the history of the game. When will Pats fans realize this? ”

    Since 2001 the Patriots have win totals of : 11, 9, 14, 14, 10, 12, 16, 11, 10, 14, 13, and 12.

    It’s hard to find much fault in Belichick’s overall performance.

    ______________

    You’re clueless about Belichick drafts like most Pats haters.

    1. From about 2004-2008 very few draft picks made the team because the roster was loaded with excellent vets that stayed in New England and that made it virtually impossible for anyone not from the first 2 or 3 rounds to make the team.

    2. Belichcik has drafted numerous pro bowlers over the years.

    3. The Pats have plenty of talent and everyone beating up on the young receivers for the first couple games is not taking into account that receivers tend to develop over their first 3 years, that the Pats have the most complicated offense in the league making it harder to pick up, and the pressure especially of the 2nd game after only 3 days with no full practices, their first home opener and against the hated Jets which the Pats hate to lose to more than anyone.

    4. That said he is best at drafting offensive and defensive linemen and linebackers I think. Receivers and corners are the positions he’s done worst at.

    5. Thanks for clarifying the Welker fumble was on a punt return not a catch. Didn’t know that and of course should not be applied to the receiver stats.

  27. jsho55 says: Sep 25, 2013 3:21 PM

    The “should have kept Welker over Amendola” comments are pretty uneducated if your just looking at Welkers stats in Denver and saying that.

    The Patriots to start this year vs last year are without Welker, Lloyd, Gronkowski, Hernandez, and Woodhead. Those guys totaled 338/402 of their receptions last year.

    Even if the Patriots had kept Welker hes just one guy, and wasn’t going to carry the offense. IMO what Edelman has done to this point is only slightly less that what Welker would have done. So its not just losing Welker, growing pains to start the year was inevitable.

  28. scaredhitless says: Sep 25, 2013 3:38 PM

    “You’re clueless about Belichick drafts like most Pats haters.”

    The Patriots are not an easy team to root for. They’re like Alabama, the Yankees, the Lakers, and Duke.

    The only difference – those teams have won something since 2004.

  29. tigerlilac says: Sep 25, 2013 3:39 PM

    I am confused after reading the comments to this thread. Are the Patriots not 3-0 overall and 2-0 in their division? Are they not playing without their three most dominating receivers in Gronkowski, Amendola and Vareen?

    LMAO….if it isn’t ol butthurt flash

  31. forsbergler says: Sep 25, 2013 3:55 PM

    Week 3, same ol pathetic looking Pats. Diffrent pathetic excuses to why their beloved QB looked so terrible again this week. Now it’s because Manning has way better talent around him? really? why don’t you go back and look what these recievers did with Kyle Orton or Tim Tebow at QB. Nothing!!!! Mannig actually makes his recievers better, unlike your pathetic dink and dunk game manager you call a QB in NE. LMAO!!!

    yeah 100% for a week till you get hurt and your out again. glad to see this guy leave stl

  33. kissbillsrings says: Sep 25, 2013 4:08 PM

    Wes is gone…wish him luck…he was great hear but things change…Amendola when healthy is a stud & Brady will be all that much better….but add Gronk on top of that & the gradual but steady reps with both Kendell & Dobson & right around the start of November the Pats Offense will begin to click & they will be a force to recon with VS any team out there & if Zack Zudfild becomes the complement TE he looks like he could be then the O could be really scarey!!!
    I love what I see happening & it’s great to have Edelman in the wings based on Danny’s history so talk crap now cause the times they are a changing!!!

  34. kissbillsrings says: Sep 25, 2013 4:19 PM

    last time I checked Brady’s & Mannings records this season are both 3-0 …..stats are just that, stats…
    Brady is taking a bunch of rookies to school & they seem to be catching on….chemistry takes time & winning early is a huge bonus while they gain that chemistry…add Gronk & Danny in the middle of the field to that mix with the new guys speed, size, & separation ability on the outside & the stage is set for a very potent offense….
    Pats are 2-0 in division & conference & 3-0 overall….what’s not to like as a Pats fan???

  35. tedmurph says: Sep 25, 2013 4:39 PM

    Accomplishments of the overrated game manager:

    3 SB rings
    2x MVP
    8x Pro Bowl
    3x All Pro
    2x SB MVP
    Most TD passes in a single season
    Most playoff wins in history
    Longest consecutive NFL win streak
    NFL All Decade Team
    Fastest to 100 wins
    Best TD/Int ratio in history
    Most completions in a SB
    Most completions in a SB w/o an INT

    There’s more, but I hope forsburgler, when he recovers from this torching, gets the point. Too easy.
