New England Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola has left the game on Thursday night against the Kansas City Chiefs. He left the game in the fourth quarter.

Amendola has reportedly suffered a concussion. This is his third known concussion and is now in the concussion protocol.

After being placed into concussion protocol, he has been ruled out for the rest of the game. This now leaves the team with three healthy wide receivers for the rest of the game.

Anyone, who watched the game, likely saw that he took many big hits. Despite being just 5-11, he’s suffered from the injury bug, as he never shies away from contact.

He had six receptions for 100 yards. Now, he’ll have 10 days to get out of the concussion protocol, before being ready to play in Week 2.

To make matters worse, Malcolm Mitchell was played on injured reserve on Wednesday. Julian Edelman is already out for the season with a torn ACL.

Amendola, prior to being injured, wants to play the entire game for Edelman.

With the Patriots wide receivers banged up, Phillip Dorsett, who was recently acquired in a trade with the Indianapolis Colts, could have a big game next week against the New Orleans Saints.
