Danny Amendola injury means St. Louis Rams are still short a receiver vs. Packers

As Danny Amendola continues to recover from a dislocated clavicle, the St. Louis Rams will have to rely on other players before their game this weekend against the Green Bay Packers.

As St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola recovers from a dislocated clavicle, it leaves the Rams wide receiver corps thin before their game against the Green Bay Packers this Sunday.

Amendola led the Rams in receptions and receiving yards before his injury with 32 and 395, respectively, and his production will be surely missed as they try to keep pace with Aaron Rodgers and the high-powered Packers offense.

While waiting for Amendola to return, Rams quarterback Sam Bradford has been forced to lean on the team's younger players like rookie Chris Givens and Brandon Gibson and has thrown to the running backs more after Amendola's injury. In their game last week against the Miami Dolphins, Bradford targeted the Rams running backs nine times out of his 38 total attempts.

Amendola will miss at least the next three weeks as he continues to recuperate from the rare injury that he suffered against the Arizona Cardinals on Oct. 4. Rams trainers told Fox Sports' Jay Glazer that no NFL player has ever suffered a dislocated clavicle that popped in instead of out.
