Danny Amendola might not be seeing the field for a while.

On Sunday, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reported that Amendola has torn adductor muscles in his hip and he may even have a sports hernia.

Mike Felger and Ron Borges sat down on Sports Sunday to discuss Amendola’s recent injury history.

“When you see guys who have a string of injuries they usually don’t go away,” Borges said. “In this case, he did make it to the two minute warning, which was good before sustaining his first injury. I feel bad for the guy. He is a tough guy, obviously. You saw him come back in there and play hurt and make tough catches. It just appears that his body is like a normal person’s body and not one of these gumby bodies that you have to have to survive.”

Right now, the Patriots will just have to wait and see how serious Amendola’s injury really is.

“The Pats were wrong in thinking that Amendola could hold up, he already has not,” Felger said. “If he comes back and plays in the second half, and plays great in the playoffs, and the Pats go to the Super Bowl, it’s the right move. We just have to wait for that to happen. As it stands right now, it doesn’t look so good on the health front.”
