St. Louis, MO (Sports Network) - St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola is not expected to play in Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals due to a right foot injury he sustained in the team's most recent contest.
Amendola hurt his foot late in the first half of last Sunday's 27-13 home loss to the New York Jets. The slot specialist did return to action on the Rams' first series of the third quarter, but was held out of practice the entire week and is listed as doubtful on the final injury report.
The four-year pro leads the Rams with 50 catches and 538 receiving yards despite missing three games with a fractured collarbone earlier in the season. Amendola suffered that injury in St. Louis' last meeting with Arizona, a 17-3 Rams' victory on Oct. 4.
Amendola came back for St. Louis' Week 10 matchup at San Francisco and came through with 11 receptions totaling 102 yards in a 24-24 tie against the NFC West-leading 49ers.
In other team injury news, linebacker Mario Haggan has been ruled out for Sunday's game after dislocating his right elbow against the Jets. Tight end Lance Kendricks, who's dealing with a knee problem, is questionable.
Running back Steven Jackson (foot), however, is probable to face the Cardinals after putting in limited practices the last two days.
