Recommendation: Amendola did in fact suffer a dislocation of the SC joint but did not suffer any ligament damage or broken bones. The Rams' medical staff was able to put the joint back in place immediately and cleanly which should make for a quicker recovery time. While it's been reported that Amendola will be out 6-to-7 weeks, the Post-Dispatch is reporting that he could return as soon as four, as it's all about how quickly Amendola naturally heals. It should be interesting to see how soon and how hard the scrappy slot receiver tries to get back on the field and what kind of push-back he gets from the Rams' training staff and coaches.
