Patriots vs Chargers Live stream. Week 8 Patriots vs Chargers: Danny Amendola a game-time decision; confident he will play. Patriots vs Chargers: The Key Matchups to Watch.
Later today, the New England Patriots will host the Los Angeles Chargers in what will be the defending world champions last game before their bye week. And the team is limping towards its weekend off, as a look at the latest injury report shows. Three players have already been ruled out to participate today, while six are listed as questionable.
Among the latter group is wide receiver Danny Amendola, who is dealing with a hyperextended knee he suffered on a punt return last week against the Atlanta Falcons. The veteran, who serves as the Patriots’ top punt returner, missed the first listed practice of the week because of the injury but returned on Thursday and Friday in limited capacity.
Due to his role as a member of multiple offensive groups, Amendola being on the field would certainly be big for Josh McDaniels’ unit and quarterback Tom Brady. After all, the 31-year old is one of the most trusted and reliable players on the team and is known for his ability to step up in the big moments – something his likely replacement Phillip Dorsett has not yet shown within the Patriots’ system.
