Danny Amendola injury: Rams WR out this week, could return for Week 10

Scott Kane-US PRESSWIRE

The St. Louis Rams will not have Danny Amendola back on the field this week.

Sorry, Rams fans. Your hopes of seeing Danny Amendola on the field against the Patriots this week have been dashed. The Working Man's Wes Welker will not dress for a game against the real Wes Welker, according to the Post-Dispatch. But he will be back soon.

Amendola has yet to be cleared for contact. Kind of an important step in the recovery process. But the sight of him catching passes from Sam Bradford is nevertheless welcome news, especially when you consider that his injury could have been season ending AND fatal.

So when can we expect to see No. 16 in uniform again on game day? The PD estimates that he could return in time for Week 10, after the team's bye for a game in San Francisco.

Rodger Saffold is also doing individual work following his Week 2 knee injury. Keep an eye on when he might hit the field again, which would also seem to be soon based on the original estimates.

Scott Wells will be eligible to come off the designated to return IR list in time for the team's Week 10 game. They might activate him and ease him back into practice before putting him on the field. Besides, they have some sorting to do on the offensive line thanks to the solid work of Robert Turner in Wells' absence.
