Report: Danny Amendola suffers knee sprain, has chance to play vs. Broncos Sunday night

Exhale, people.

CSNNE's Tom E. Curran reported that Pats wide receiver Danny Amendola suffered a knee sprain last night against the Bills and isn't expected to miss extended time. 

Amendola will be limited throughout the week leading into the matchup against the Broncos in Mile High. His status is up in the air, as the team will increase his workload through the week hoping he responds well come Sunday night.

It's better than any other scenario we were dreading, as it was a non-contact injury for the wide out and people were fearing some sort of ligament or hamstring tear that would've put him on the shelf long-term.

As for the other injured receiver, Aaron Dobson is expected to miss the game against the Broncos with the injury he picked up in the second quarter. Jeff Howe of the Boston herald reported that the X-rays on Dobson's ankle came back negative and showed no signs of any broken bones, but the team is awaiting word on the results from the MRI. 

So it's good news and sorta bad news for the Pats. It goes without saying this offense can't afford any more injuries anywhere on the field, and there is still a chance the team is without both #80 and #17 Sunday night in Denver.

At this point, it's less about Revenge Tour 2015 and instead Survive and Advance Until January.
