He had caught one pass for 44 yards against the Cardinals before being injured. Amendola was also the team's primary punt returner.
The receiving game suffered without Amendola as quarterback Sam Bradford completed just 7-of-21 passes. However, the Rams were able to pull out the win over the Cardinals.
