The New England Patriots decided to let veteran WR Wes Welker to walk in free agency this season and replace him with Danny Amendola. Many have suggested that Amendola is a younger version of Welker. Both a slot receiver, tough as nails and both from Texas Tech. The disclaimer with Amendola was his injury history. One game into the 2013 regular season, it seems as if Amendola is going to miss his first game as a member of the Patriots.
Amendola suffered a groin injury on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. After the injury, many thought he was done for the day. He returned and contributed to the Patriots offense while gutting out his injury while finishing the afternoon with 10 receptions for 104 yards.
