The early prognostication from ESPN's Chris Mortensen suggested that New England Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola won't play against Atlanta this weekend. Amendola is still recovering from a groin injury and have no reason to rush him back. In another report, Amedola said, "I'm feeling a lot better ... and just going day by day."
Julian Edelman , Kenbrell Thompkins and Aaron Dobson all figure to play a large role as the Pats' core group of receivers. Edelman already has 27 receptions on the year and Thompkins caught two scores last week. With Tom Brady under center, Amendola would be a huge weapon, unfortunately his health always seems to get in the way. We'll find out for sure either on Friday afternoon or as a game-time decision.
