In his return to the Patriots' lineup Saturday against the Texans, Amendola saw action on 21 (out of a possible 69) snaps on offense for the team, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. In the process, Amendola carried once for 15 yards and did not catch a pass.

EDGE Analysis

In his fourth season with the Patriots, Amendola recorded 23 catches (on 29 targets) for 243 yards and a career-high four TDs in 12 games, while working behind starters Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan. Amendola is under contract with the Patriots for 2017, but with a $6,000,000 base salary on tap, the 31-year-old wideout is an obvious candidate to have his deal re-worked.

Amendola (ankle) is active for Saturday's game against the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

For the first time since Week 13, Amendola will be available to the Patriots' offense after recovering from a high-ankle sprain. He could play a large role in an offense sans rookie wideout Malcolm Mitchell (knee), though Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, and Michael Floyd will likely also have their numbers called in the divisional round.

Amendola (ankle) was a full participant in practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran wideout is cleared to play Saturday against the Texans after not participating in the last four contests. Amendola will be welcomed addition in not only the passing game, but also as a returner. He will likely resume his role as the Patriots' slot receiver, but could see a slight decrease in reps due to the recent accusation of Michael Floyd.

Amendola (ankle) is following a "day-by-day" approach in advance of Saturday's divisional-round contest against the Texans, Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

During media availability Tuesday, Amendola added that he's "feeling good" and will take on "whatever coach [Bill Belichick] wants me to do" this weekend. When healthy, Amendola is merely a bit player in the Patriots' passing attack, but his return ability would likely be welcomed by Belichick. First, though, Amendola must prove his health in the coming days in order to take the field Saturday.

Amendola (ankle) participated in Wednesday's practice, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per the report, Amendola appeared to be moving well Wednesday and based on that, it would appear as though the wideout has a decent chance to return to action following the Patriots' first-round playoff bye. A high ankle sprain sidelined Amendola for the team's last four games, but his return to practice Wednesday bodes well for his chances of rejoining the lineup for the Patriots' Jan. 14 tilt against a yet-to-be determined opponent.

Amendola (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, ESPN's MIke Reiss reports.

EDGE Analysis

With fellow wideout Malcolm Mitchell (knee) officially doubtful for the contest, look for necowmer Michael Floyd to move into an expanded role in Week 17 behind Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan.

Amendola (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Amendola continues to nurse a right ankle injury, and there's a decent chance we won't see the wideout play again until the Patriots embark on their playoff run following the team's first-round bye.

Amendola (ankle) is listed as out for Saturday's game against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

With Amendola still out, Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell will continue to head the Patriots' Week 16 wideout corps, with newcomer Michael Floyd also a candidate to see his first action in a New England uniform Saturday.

Amendola (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, CSN New England reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per the report, Amendola was spotted Tuesday in the Patriots' locker room sporting a walking boot. The wideout hasn't played since Week 13 and at this stage looks pretty iffy for Saturday's game against the Jets.

Amendola (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

With Amendola out, as expected, Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell are in line to log plenty of snaps in the Patriots' Week 15 offense, which figures to feature plenty of three-wideout sets. Meanwhile, to bolster the team's depth at the position with Amendola ailing, the Patriots claimed Michael Floyd off waivers from the Cardinals on Thursday.
