Amendola has torn adductor muscles, according to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports. Glazer reported there are conflicting opinions from doctors whether the Patriots receiver has a sports hernia.
If Amendola has torn adductors, he can play through it, but he’ll likely never be fully healthy this season, according to Rapoport. If he has a sports hernia, he’ll need surgery and recovery will take 4-6 weeks.
Until then, Tom Brady and the Patriots will have to live with Julian Edelman and three rookies at receiver.
