Danny Amendola | groin

Amendola gutted out a huge second half yesterday after aggravating his groin injury. Unfortunately, aggravated muscle injuries are often worse than the initial injury. Though he finished the game with a combination of adrenaline, taping and guts, he was clearly limited. I'm speculating here, but I doubt Amendola would've returned yesterday if the game hadn't been close. I don't expect him to see any practice time this week and he's going to have a very difficult time getting ready for a Thursday night game. Don't be surprised if he's still considered a game-time decision in Week 3

is this the thread where we post that he's questionable every week? also,

Rotoworld is saying that Amendolabia tore his abductors. I believe those are the things that keep the ovaries and uterus where they are supposed to be. He could be out for a while.

Me too I'm holding....for now

I just hope they announce when they are required to instead saying he's "active" and then he sits the whole game.

You hope that BB will give you accurate injury information or accurate information at all?

I hope if he's not playing that he's listed as such. Most teams you wouldn't have to worry about that. With BB anything is possible.

I'd be very surprised if he did play Thursday. Groin injuries can be very serious. If it ruptures, he's done. I can't see him risking injury against a game v. the Jets.

Why, because they are going to blow out the team with the rookie QB, like they did yesterday?

exactly. this is the NFL, and if you play not to lose, then you do. "Its just buffalo" jsut about beat the Pats. and the NYJ will give NE everything they can handle

Just dont see why he could play in the game on Sunday and not on thursday.

Game was on the line Sunday - that's why he went back in. If he runs the risk of further injury on Thursday, there is no way he plays a full compliment of snaps. If NE is up by a comfortable margin, Amendola will be on the sidelines. I could see him suiting up for a playoff game but not week #2 against the Jets at home on a short week. The guy couldn't walk comfortably to the line of scrimmage. That is why I cannot see him healing to the point of playing. If you ever had a groin injury, you'd know how difficult it is to run. It is like hamstring injuries, the legs just cannot get going.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Danny Amendola (groin) is "almost certain" to miss Thursday night's game against the Jets.



Amendola wasn't spotted at Tuesday morning's walkthrough and is expected to be held out of Week 2 with the Patriots playing on just four days rest. With Amendola out, Julian Edelman will replace him in the slot and is a high-end WR2 against Jets. Kenbrell Thompkins should also continue to see plenty of targets. It's a massive downgrade to New England's offense, who will already be with out Shane Vereen (wrist). Zach Sudfeld is dealing with a hamstring injury and was limited in Monday's practice. The Patriots are still evaluating the exact severity of the oft-injured Amendola's muscle pull.

http://www.coreperformance.com/knowledge/injury-pain/groin-strain.html

A groin strain is a stretch, tear, or complete rupture of the muscle that extends from the pubic bone to the inside of the thigh. It is the main muscle that allows you to move the leg from an outside to an inside position from the hip (initiating a crossover step in basketball or soccer, for example). A pulled or strained groin is painful and takes time to heal. You might not even notice the injury during normal daily activities, but it will get your full attention if you move with a sudden start. Returning to training or competition too soon is a common mistake.

Like many sports injuries, a strained groin can be caused by overuse of the primary inner thigh muscle (adductor longus), by a sudden contraction of that muscle, or by both. Sprinting, changing directions, jumping to catch a ball, running uphill and landing after a jump are all examples of actions that could trigger the injury. Inadequate warm-ups, poor technique and taking a blow to the groin area are also possible causes.

Symptoms
  1. A mild (Grade 1) groin strain may not be very painful and may not limit mild or moderate physical activity.
  2. A moderate (Grade 2) sprain causes moderate discomfort and limits or prevents running and jumping.
  3. A severe (Grade 3) strain causes pain doing almost anything
Comeback Strategy

Use symptoms (or the lack of symptoms) to determine your comeback timetable, not a certain number of days or weeks. Generally, speaking, Grade 1 symptoms usually disappear within a week; Grade 2 symptoms last 2-3 weeks; and Grade 3 symptoms can persist for 6-8 weeks or longer.

  • Don’t try to come back too soon. Absence of symptoms while performing normal daily activities is deceiving and different from the forces involved in training or competition.
  • No brisk walking, jogging, or running as long as you have moderate-to-severe pain.
  • Once the pain disappears, gradually increase the intensity, duration, and frequency of training.
  • Go through all the movements required in your sport without pain before returning to action.

My girlfriend loves my adductor longus.

I'm surprised so many people didn't back him up with kenbrell or edelman. It seemed like the obvious move. I am happy so far - amendola looked awesome, edelman looked great and is the clear top wr to own until amendola returns, and gronk is close to coming back, which should open things up substantially.

"Official Danny Amendola Injury Thread" - This just makes me laugh...

We all know he'll be hurt at some point & it is going to be such a headache dealing with BB's injury report for Amendola owners.

It feels good looking at something I wrote 5 days ago and knowing how right I was so soon!

I was furious when they let Welker go and even more angry when they grabbed Glassmendola!!!! I'm not a Pats fan, I just love Welker and have had him on my team for the last 4 seasons...

Welker is a warrior - I've watched this guy take hits that would put Glassdola out for the season and grab a catch on the next play... So stupid for the Pats to let him go - I wanted to draft Glass in the 5th of a PPR league, but passed bc I couldnt deal with the associated headaches he and BB will give owners!

For anyone that wasted a 3rd - 5th rounder on this guy, enjoy this, as this questionable tag and missed playing time will be the norm all season for Danny Glass

He's going to be fine, he's going to be there at playoff time and that's when you want FF production. Just be sure you have a NE handcuff.

He's going to be fine? You say this because why???

He was hurt in the first half of the first game, but he'll be okay in the 14th week of the season... Your reasoning and rationale? probably because you burned an early pick on the Glassmendola?

Wasn't his injury from the second preseason game actually? Regardless, splitting hairs - This guy is a fragile franky

That's a lot of picks on a replaceable receiver. Not everybody has deep rosters where they can hold 2-3 Pats in case of emergency.

Because it's not season ending. You say he'll be out at playoff time, but this injury does not last that long. And yes I do think it's worth 2 roster spots to have a piece of the NE passing game, it's like clockwork. So if you drafted properly, Danny A is out so put in Thompkins or Edelman. It's taken some homework on the front end but Danny A. + Thompkins or Edelman was nearly the price of just Danny A (at least early on before Thompkins started skyrocketing). We will see if it pays off but having bases covered makes it worth it.

because after being out 13 weeks he should come back healthy.

WR Danny Amendola -- Wouldn't be surprised if we don't see him before the Sept. 29 game at Atlanta.

This is just a pats beat writer speculating, but has to make an owner nervous.

That would mean he missed two games instead of one.
