Amendola remains a must-start when healthy. He appears to have a good rapport with Tom Brady, and he should be considered a strong WR2 play down the stretch.
The New England Patriots receiver had missed one game with a concussion and groin injury.
There is no word on when he will be back for the Pats.
Amendola will play for the first time since Week 1, though his snaps could be limited.
Amendola was listed as doubtful Friday, possibly making room in your fantasy lineup once again for Julian Edelman, but possibly leaving the Patriots' shaky offense in jeopardy of struggling again against a much-improved secondary.
With rookie tight end Zach Sudfeld also inactive (hamstring), Tom Brady's receiving corps is depleted. Amendola has a groin injury. Gronkowski is missing his second straight game after forearm and back surgery.
Amendola appears to be a top target for Tom Brady with Rob Gronkowski out of action and several other pass-catchers gone from last year's club.
Amendola, 27, is a 5-foot-11, 188-pound former rookie free agent from Texas Tech - the same school as Welker. After signing with the Rams in 2009, Amendola led the NFL with 66 kickoff returns, 1,618 kickoff return yards and 1,978 total return yards.
