Danny Amendola Injury: He Is Officially the Scrappiest Player in St. Louis

ST. LOUIS, MO - SEPTEMBER 11: Danny Amendola #16 of the St. Louis Rams dislocates his elbow during a game against the Philadelphia Eagles at the Edward Jones Dome on September 11, 2011 in St. Louis, Missouri. The Eagles defeated the Rams 31-15. (Photo by Jeff Curry/Getty Images)

No mere dislocated elbow can keep Danny Amendola on the sidelines. The St. Louis Rams' medical staff is practically having to restrain Amendola to prevent him from retaking the field this week. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Amendola wants to play, whether he has both arms or not. 

Rotoworld recounts Schefter's broadcast report:

Danny Amendola actually wants to play, and the Rams doctors are gonna have to try to hold him out.

My God, if this guy played for the Cardinals, he'd be the most popular player in St. Louis, more popular than David Eckstein or Bo Hart combined! It's extreme scrappiness, and I suspect Tony La Russa is thinking about making him the latest two sport player. 

In all seriousness, this could be a sign that Amendola's injury will not keep him on the shelf for as long as it initially appeared. Maybe it really was as simple as popping it back into place. It looked like he would be out for the season, and the picture above sure drives that point home. As 3K said earlier:

But seriously, you have to sit this one out. You only have 1 and 1/2 arms right now. We require 2 arms from our WRs...and no hands.
