Even though Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola isn’t expected to be back for another 2-6 weeks, head coach Bill Belichick considers him to be day-to-day. He also placed tight end Rob Gronkowski in the same category.
Coach Bill Belichick answered a question about Gronkowski by saying that the team sees all of their injured players as “day-to-day” on a Monday conference call and then was asked if Amendola is more week-to-week because of the nature of his injuries.
“I’d say really all of our players are day-to-day other than obviously [running back Shane] Vereen. I know the rest of them we’ll just take it day-to-day,” Belichick said.
It sounds like the Patriots are very optimistic about Amendola, while Gronk being day-to-day isn’t a surprise because he could be ready for next week’s game.
