    Amendola update

    New England Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola completely tore the adductor longus tendon in his groin in the team's Week 1 victory over the Buffalo Bills, two league sources told Yahoo Sports.

    [...]

    Doctors often treat chronic groin pain by snipping the adductor longus – one of the muscles in the groin – from the pubic bone. Since Amendola's tendon ruptured, he essentially did the doctors' work for them, eliminating the need for surgery during the season. It also means he has a faster recovery time than if he had a groin operation.

    Normal recovery time, even without surgery, is anywhere from two to six weeks. League sources said Amendola is healing faster than that, at a pace closer to three to four, which means he might play as soon as next Sunday at Atlanta.

    That's great, if that's the case.  Personally, though, I would rather they proceed cautiously with him.  Even if he is cleared to go, I don't think it would hurt to give him a little extra time.  If we get Gronkowski back this week, I think that should reduce the need to rush Amendola back.

    In response to Harvey-Wallbanger's comment:

    Dude, no offense...This is old news. The real update is that he doesn't need surgery and it's not torn from the bone, which means he can't damage it anymore.

    We won't see him this week or maybe even next week.  Rest and treatment with him going through the motions with reps in practice.

    There is no real update from that.



    oh sorry dude

    I think this one is newer

    UPDATE: Tuesday, Sept. 24

    The Boston Globe's Shalise Manza Young confirms Danny Amendola continues to make progress during his recovery and sheds light on his potential return to the field:

    There still is not a date for his return, but a league source said Monday that Patriots receiver Danny Amendola is “progressing very well” as he recovers from torn groin muscles.

    Thanks. NOW that is a true update from what we already knew.

     

    I am hoping for NOs in a few weeks. I think that is realistic for that kind of a tear.

     

    [/QUOTE]

    yeah, I agree with you the game against NO is more realistic.

    Bill Belichick laying in the weeds! Not only does he sign a productive slot guy, but the guys he signs actually save us money and time by having their own muscles tear from the bone, rather than having a surgeon do it. That's value right there folks. Thanks Bill Belichick.

    I'll believe he's okay when he gets on the field and catches passes from TB during actual games.

    +1

    With all the time BB spends lying in the weeds I'll bet he'd be great at duck hunting.   Maybe he can do a cameo on Duck Dynasty in the off-season.

    Sounds like the old self induced triple sports hernia groin abductor bypass was a success.

    I'm so glad Danny A. and his injured groin are on the Pats.  If were lucky we might get a couple of games out of him.

    After watching Welker last night in Denver with his 84 yds and 1 td, I'm glad we didn't keep this too durable productive player.  Much better too speculate on Amendola's groin.

     




    Loved WW but he dropped another TD pass that hit him up around the neck.  If you watched the game you saw PM cringe right afterwards.

    Re: Amendola update

    So does all this essentially mean that when he gets back on the field he won't actually be 100%?  That he will need surgery after the season's over?

    Anyone have any idea how this kind of injury will affect his ability to run routes and make cuts?

    Keep in perspective that Welker had 84 yards and 1 TD against the Oakland Raiders who are about as good as Fresno State.   If the Pats played the Raiders last night, they could have coaxed Vrabel out of retirement to play slot WR and he would have put up better numbers because he'd throw 3 tacklers off him wth one arm and gain more yards after the catch.

    It’s quite evident Welker is already becoming Manning’s Binky.  BWAH HAA HA, they’re really screwed now.

    Love Welker too, but the Pat's are getting ok production from Edleman.  Heck, he has 20 receptions to Welker's 19 on the season.  The Pats miss the two tight end production the most.

    Most definitely.  With any luck, that all changes this Sunday in Atlanta.
