Wide receiver Danny Amendola will not be on the field for the Patriots in their Week 12 game against the Broncos.
The news that Amendola will not play on Sunday is hardly a surprise. Amendola did not travel with the Patriots on Friday. His absence leaves the team without much behind Rob Gronkowski and Brandon LaFell.
Many expected Amendola’s numbers to go up when Julian Edelman got hurt but instead he now misses time himself. Keshawn Martin, acquired in a trade with the Texans, could be on the field to start the game.
While Amendola’s absence will affect the Patriots game plan, media members will be talking about how Peyton Manning is not playing in this game for the Broncos as Brock Osweiler makes his second career start.
