New England Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola did not practice Wednesday. The former Texas Tech receiver took a huge hit to the head in his most recent game to the Saints. He went down hard and did not land very gracefully near the sidelines. He will need medical clearance to play this week against the Jets.
With all due respect to Amendola, the guy can't stay healthy. At this point, you could compare him to current teammate Austin Collie. Given the Patriots numerous receivers available every week, Amendola's absence is providing great opportunities to guys like Kenbrell Thompkins , Aaron Dobson and Julian Edelman . Amendola is simply too risky to trust when he does re-insert himself in the lineup. Let him play in two straight games before giving him another shot.
