Injured Patriots Danny Amendola, Dion Lewis Play In Tom Brady’s Charity Game

BOSTON — That New England Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola and running back Dion Lewis participated in Tom Brady’s Best Buddies Football Challenge at all on Friday night was newsworthy.

Amendola, who reportedly underwent knee and ankle surgeries over the offseason, didn’t look very hindered catching two touchdown passes and weaving through celebrities and buddies during the touch football game. Lewis, who tore his ACL last November and is less than seven months recovered from surgery, took the game at a quarter speed.

“It’s going well,” Lewis said of his rehab. “Just doing whatever I’m allowed to every day. Trying to listen to the trainers and whatever they let me to do, I do it as hard as I can.”

Neither Amendola nor Lewis participated in the Patriots’ organized team activities session open to the media last Thursday.

Amendola won the award for best catch after the game while E!’s Maria Menounos won the award for worst drop.
