The St. Louis Rams jetted off to London this week, leaving several of the team's walking wounded at home. A few of the injured players joined the team on the trip, including Danny Amendola. The scrappy wide receiver was seen practicing with the team across the pond, wearing a helmet and catching passes from Sam Bradford.
Amendola separated his clavicle on a diving catch in a Week 5 win against the Arizona Cardinals. He was supposed to be on the shelf for a month, if not more. However, the nature of the injury was sketchy. The Rams training staff had to call around looking for precedent. The bone was literally centimeters away from a fatal injury. Instead, doctors were able to pop it back into place.
If you run into Danny Amendola, you should probably give him a buck and ask him to buy you a lottery ticket.

Now, Amendola is practicing on a limited basis, officially. It has been three weeks since his injury. This is Wednesday, and the Rams have a couple more days of practice before the game.
Keep an eye on Danny Amendola's status. If he's back in the lineup this soon, it could be a very positive development for the Rams, not to mention a huge morale boost after two disappointing losses. His return would also bode well for the offense this week against a Patriot team that struggles against slot receivers.
