The New England Patriots have forged forward with several injuries to wide receivers this season. Most recently, Danny Amendola and Malcolm Mitchell missed the team’s Week 17 finale at the Miami Dolphins.
Michael Floyd starred in the game alongside Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan.
Now, with Amendola and Mitchell back practicing, the Patriots have five healthy wideouts for the first time in a long time.
Will all of them play on Saturday against the Houston Texans?
Amendola provided an update on his status for the first time in a month.
Amendola: I feel good. I feel good today. Getting ready for tomorrow. I have had no setbacks.

Amendola: Whatever coach wants me to do.

Amendola should be available for the Patriots on Saturday.
Now it’s just a matter of waiting and seeing what Bill Belichick decides.
WEEI’s Ryan Hannable posted an encouraging practice video on Wednesday, showing Amendola moving very well.
