(MyFoxBoston.com) – New England Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola could be sidelined for about a month if it is determined he has a sports hernia and will need surgery, FOX Sports NFL Insider Jay Glazer said.
Glazer reported Amendola has torn adductors, but "he's received conflicting reports from doctors on whether or not he has a sports hernia." He is getting "more opinions on Sunday" and could be out for about a month if surgery is required.
Amendola was sidelined for Thursday's game against the New York Jets, listed as inactive with a groin injury.
During the team's opener against the Buffalo Bills, Amendola ran for 104 yards averaging 10.4 yards a carry in the team's 23-21 win. However, it was during that game Amendola reinjured his groin while running a pattern, reports Sports Illustrated.
According to the magazine, Amendola was signed as a free agent as Wes Welker left for the Denver Broncos.
