St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola will not play on Sunday when his team hosts the San Francisco 49ers at the Edward Jones Dome. Amendola's status for Sunday's contest was up in the air all week as the wideout battles a heel injury.
Amendola dealt with a nearly identical situation in Week 12 -- he didn't practice all week and was listed as doubtful with the same foot injury. Then the Rams activated him in a surprise move just before game time. But he only took seven snaps against the Arizona Cardinals, catching one ball for 38 yards and displaying a visible limp on his routes.
In the first meeting between the two teams, Amendola snagged 11 catches for 102 yards. Rookie wide receiver Chris Givens stepped up for the hobbled Amendola last week, catching five balls for 115 yards and a touchdown.
Kickoff between the 49ers and Rams is scheduled for Noon CT. The game will be televised on FOX.
