Danny Amendola Status: Expected To Miss The Rest Of The Season

Danny Amendola is most likely going to miss the rest of the St. Louis Rams' 2011 season, according to Adam Caplan of Sirius/XM radio. This does not come as a huge surprise. Amendola re-injured his arm last week in practice, taking his first practice reps since dislocating his elbow in the Rams season opener, what might now be called the costliest game in Rams history. 

I'm told Rams KR/WR/PR Danny Amendola (dislocated elbow/torn triceps) is expected to miss the rest of the season.

Amendola is in Texas today to get a second opinion on his elbow and the triceps muscle he tore in practice last week. Caplan said in a later Tweet, that he was still unsure about surgery for Amendola. 

I still wonder about the decision to let Amendola back on the practice field. The Rams had said that they wanted to be cautious with his injury, letting him rest until after the bye. Steve Spagnuolo said that they wanted to see where their slot receiver was when they let him back on the practice field. It's a tough situation, because Amendola is one of those players that wants on the field in spite of hell or highwater. He wanted to play in week two. 

With Bartell out for the year and a potentially serious injury to Bradley Fletcher, the Rams season is effectively over. Of course, it never really began.
