He was not on the field on Wednesday, three days after taking a shot to the head and leaving the game against the Saints. This confirms Amendola indeed suffered a concussion in Sunday’s win over the New Orleans Saints. Amendola just can’t seem to stay on the field. He’s already missed three games with a groin injury, participated in just two full games before getting knocked out in the third quarter in Week 6. Amendola continues to be plagued by injuries. In 2012, Amendola suffered a dislocated clavicle and had season-ending triceps surgery. In a extremely rare case, instead of popping out, the clavicle popped in and came millimeters from puncturing his trachea and aorta, which could have killed him.
The Patriots had previously been silent on the situation. They didn’t reveal anything else Wednesday, unsurprisingly. It would be very surprising to see Amendola play in Week 7 against the New York Jets.
