Danny Amendola injury: Rams WR will miss 6-7 weeks, according to report

Scott Rovak-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The St. Louis Rams will be without the services of wide receiver Danny Amendola for 6-7 weeks, according to a report. It was initially feared that he would miss the remainder of the season.

When Danny Amendola went down in the St. Louis Ram's Thursday night win over the previously undefeated Arizona Cardinals, it was feared that he broke his collarbone and would miss the remainder of the season. Fortunately, it appears as if he has avoided that. If early reports are correct, Amendola only has a dislocated clavicle, which will keep him out until the end of November, but will allow him to return this year:

Amendola was injured when he came down hard on his shoulder after leaping to try to catch a pass. He grabbed his shoulder as he left the field and was later seen on the sideline out of uniform and in a sling.

The Rams will take a bit hit in Amendola's absence. He is the Rams' leading receiver, with 32 catches for 395 yards on the season and a couple touchdowns, while also serving as the team's punt returning. But while losing him is a blow, a 6-7 week absence sure beats the rest of the season.
