Rams WR Amendola sits out Wembley game against Patriots with shoulder injury

Danny Amendola is inactive for the St. Louis Rams against the New England Patriots in London, leaving quarterback Sam Bradford will be without his favorite target for a third straight game.

The Rams' leading receiver hurt his shoulder against Arizona on Oct. 4 but returned to practice this week after recovering quicker than expected from a right shoulder injury. He said there was a small chance he'd be able to play, but St. Louis opted to keep him out with a bye week coming up.

The Patriots will be without left guard Logan Mankins because of calf and hip problems, while tight end Aaron Hernandez is out with an ankle injury. Hernandez was ruled out Friday by New England.
