Could Welker 2.0 miss the game this Thursday? It is possible, according to Ian Rapoport, who tweeted today that Patriots WR Danny Amendola might not be healthy enough to play.
Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comThe Patriots keep a very level-headed “next man up” motto, but not having Vereen, Gronk and Amendola certainly makes a big difference in whatever sort of passing game the Patriots might be able to put forth against the Jets.
Obviously, this all to the favor of the Jets. While the Jets might not have Revis to confound Brady, they still have very competent depth at corner and their defensive line could harry Brady from the outset. While the Jets win last week wasn’t pretty, it’s hard not to feel somewhat bullish on this Jets team as they head to New England for their Thursday night matchup.
