    No Surgery for Amendola

    Hopefully this means he'll be back on the shorter end of that timetable.

    That is amazing news. The difference between a complete tear, and a sprain type tear, can be monumental in recovery time, and prognosis. 

    He's already missed one week, so the median time for this injury would be two weeks from now. The short end would be next week after the Bucs, the long end, five weeks from now. 

    Personally, given how fragile he seems to be ... I hope they err on the side of caution.

    Great news.  The injury prone player will probably only miss a quarter of the season...so far.

    Re: No Surgery for Amendola

    I'm conflicted.  As a Pats fan I want to see him on the field.   But, I don't want him back on the field until he's completely healthy (see Gronk I and Gronk II).

    I hope he has gotten plenty of experts to look at his xrays or whatever they took for tests.  And I hope he hasn't just listened to the opinion that gets him back soonest.

    In the end, it's in everyones best interest for him to be really smart about this injury/recovery.

    I agree.  Do not rush him back.  We need to get Fragile Danny fully healthy and then hope like heck he can stay that way.

    Awesome News!....I hate to see him rush back, but if the offense doesn't show improvement...Bottom line is we need him on the field...fingers crossed we make the right decision

    Well, he was hurt before the first game. They've decided on no surgery for the time being and hoping that time and rehab will get him on the field. If the injury is worse than people are letting on - then I"m sure that the team doctor will change his mind and rx surgery; which likely will mean DA on IR for rest of season.

    Re: No Surgery for Amendola

    NfNflnrt for now re hab, but surgery still a possibility,

    Pats must feel this is best bet for now.

    If he had a sports hernia he would for sure go under  the knife.

    my crystal ball says NO game or surgery

    Pat's Fan lost in Jet Land

    No surgery yet you mean.  Still conflicting reports and diagnosis about the injury.  Hopefully it doesn't turn into a Greg Jennings 2012 situation.

    Didn't Amendola sit out for 3 weeks to heal from this once before in the preseason, came back and then re injured it AGAIN?

    So he is going to sit out a few more weeks and then possibly come back and re injure it again and be out another 2-4 weeks?

    Hopefully it doesn't turn into a Greg Jennings 2012 situation.

    Looks like Jay Glazer had solid info.

    Re: No Surgery for Amendola

    So the guy pulls a groin in preseason (no contact injury)...it's still a big problem a month later...and people feel good about the current prognosis/diagnosis? I don't know about you, but I think this guy is an injury waiting to happen. I'm not holding my breath on this guy, I highly doubt he is still on the roster this time next season.

    Stupid signing for stupid money by a stupid GM.

    Never should have let Welker go.

    Please note:  I'm not a Welker or bust guy.  I'm a "hey, that guy is healthy and can catch" guy.  Those two items put him ahead of every single WR or TE on the team.
