Amendola is cleared to play

Amendola AP

When last we saw Patriots receiver Danny Amendola, he didn’t look very good.  Flattened by a legal helmet-to-helmet hit against the Saints, Amendola had an obvious concussion — and it hardly appeared to be “mild.”

Two weeks later, Amendola has received clearance to play on Sunday against the Dolphins, according to Albert Breer of NFL Network.

Like any player that receives the green light from an independent neurologist, the return of any concussion symptoms before kickoff will get the player shut down.

Unless, of course, the player successfully conceals it from the team.

Amendola has appeared in only three of seven games this season, catching 16 passes for 159 yards and no touchdowns.

In contrast, former Patriots receiver Wes Welker has appeared in seven games, catching 44 passes for 474 yards and eight touchdowns.

    By the time he catches his first pass he will be listed as doubtful . Injury prone is an understatement

    Prediction:
    Amendola probable week 8
    Out week 9
    Doubtful week 10, 11
    Probable week 12

    No need to tell us about his lousy stats……..we see them when working our fantasy team lineups……..

    Why is it that every time there is an update about Amendola you always have to just mention welker?

    I really find it interesting that Brady has struggled so bad regardless of his pass catchers. It seems like thd great ones elevate those around them not sink to their level.

    the patriots and their fans should have admitted that tom brady overthrew Wes Welker.

    No (particular) love for the Patriots but I feel (a little) bad for guys like Amendola, Percy Harvin, Greg Oden, Sam Perkins, Bill Walton, Jahvid Best … I could go on … but guys who’s full professional potential goes unrealized due to injury/their own body betrays them.

    I’ll be surprised if he lasts past halftime.
