Report: Danny Amendola will Play vs. Bengals

The Patriots will receive a boost at the wide receiver position today, as Danny Amendola is expected to play.

Although it was a good sign when receiver Danny Amendola traveled with the Patriots to Cincinnati, it wasn't known for sure if he would play.  Now, we have somewhat of a confirmation that he will suit up from Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network:

Needless to say, having Amendola back is a big boost for the Patriots.  While he may not play as many snaps as he usually would, having him back in the fold will allow the Patriots to work him and Julian Edelman together in the offense for just the second time this year.

Rapoport also Tweets that the Patriots are expected to have both Kenbrell Thompkins and Danny Amendola today:

So, your dreams of Josh Boyce being the Patriots #1 receiver for today, probably not going to happen.
