  Lions | Detroit's injury report for Week 1    Fri Sep 11, 03:28 PM

Detroit Lions TE Hunter Bryant (hamstring), S C.J. Moore (hamstring) and OT Halapoulivaati Vaitai (foot) did not practice Friday, Sept. 11, and have been ruled out for Week 1 against the Chicago Bears. WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) did not practice for a second straight day and is listed as doubtful. WR Danny Amendola (hamstring), DL Da'Shawn Hand (groin), CB Jeff Okudah (hamstring), DE Julian Okwara (knee) and CB Darryl Roberts (groin) were limited in practice Friday and are listed as questionable. RB D'Andre Swift (hip) was upgraded to a full practice Friday and has been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: Golladay is likely out and Danny Amendola isn't 100%, so it's looking like a big Marvin Jones and TJ Hockenson week against the Bears. Rookie Quintez Cephus could start in Golladay's place.

  Lions | Danny Amendola working out with NFL QBs    Sat May 23, 07:38 PM

Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola said he has been working out with New York Giants QB Colt McCoy and Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield this offseason since they all live in the same area.

Footballguys view: Players are doing what they can where they are to get workouts in during this coronavirus pandemic. Amendola could catch around 60 passes again (would be the fourth year in a row around that number) this season with Matthew Stafford slinging the rock.

  Lions | Danny Amendola re-ups with Detroit    Sat Feb 22, 01:55 PM

Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola will sign a one-year extension with the team, according to league sources Saturday, Feb. 22.

Footballguys view: Amendola will continue to serve as veteran depth and a dependable slot receiver (when healthy) for the Lions. In 2019, Amendola had 62 catches for 678 yards and one touchdown (15 games). Expect a similar projection of production for Amendola in 2020.

  Lions | Danny Amendola could be back next season    Fri Jan 17, 01:06 AM

Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola is set to become an unrestricted free agent, but he's a 'prime candidate' to be re-signed, in the opinion of The Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett.

Footballguys view: Amendola helped the Lions thin wide receiver group and had one of his best years as a pro in 2019. He will have some marginal value in PPR leagues if he returns to Detroit.

Detroit Lions RB Danny Amendola ended up with eight receptions for 102 yards on 13 targets in Week 15 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola (chest) was limited during practice Saturday, Oct. 12, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.

He missed the team's first two practice sessions during the week but participated on a limited basis Friday, Sept. 27, and is officially listed as questionable on the injury report.

Footballguys view: If Amendola can't go this week, TJ Hockenson becomes a better play as a middle of the field option in a game that should force the Lions to pass a lot.

  Lions | Danny Amendola sits again    Thu Sep 26, 04:32 PM

  Lions | Danny Amendola an option for Detroit?    Thu Feb 14, 11:04 PM

Miami Dolphins WR Danny Amendola could fill the slot receiver role for the Detroit Lions in 2019 because of his connection to head coach Matt Patricia, in the opinion of Bill Barnwell of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Amendola could find his way to the Motor City. The Lions need to find someone to take over the Golden Tate role on underneath routes. Amendola could fill that void while Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay work on the outside.

  Dolphins | Danny Amendola on outs in Miami?    Fri Feb 8, 01:41 PM

Miami Dolphins WR Danny Amendola may be released in Miami due to his $6 million salary, and a return to the New England Patriots would be a likely destination if that happens.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise on either one of these speculations in this report. The Dolphins could easily move on from Amendola as they're set to basically tank in 2019. The Patriots don't have a ton of salary cap space at this time but would likely welcome Amendola back to the fold.
