New England Patriots rumors address injury updates for Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski. It looks like both Amendola and Gronkowski will miss the Patriots vs. Atlanta Falcons game on Sunday (Sept. 29). According to a report from Friday (Sept. 27), both players have been able to practice, but that activity has been pretty limited.
The bad news for Patriots fans and fantasy football owners is that the team is going to hold back its two best receivers for at least one more game. Amendola hasn't recovered from a groin injury he suffered earlier in the season, forcing him to be listed as doubtful for last week's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Now it is a sure thing that he will not be playing against the Falcons, putting the team in a tough position.
As for Gronkowski, he is still trying to battle back from surgery on his forearm as well as his back. It's possible that he could be ready for the Week 5 game, but the team doesn't want to rush him along. The dual injuries have made it tougher for the team to predict a date for his return to the field, even though he has been appearing at practices.
The New England Patriots rumors about these players have already been confirmed by the team. The injury updates for Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski will have them listed as questionable for the game, but fantasy football owners will probably want to stay far away from starting them. This might be a rough week for Tom Brady, with Julian Edelman likely to receive quite a few targets once again.
