03:07 PM ET 01.25 | New England Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola had a disappointing first season with the team, after signing a five-year deal during free agency. In the season opener, Amendola suffered a torn adductor longus tendon, which was a big part of his struggles and now he will need the injury to repair in the offseason. As Amendola prepares to recover, he received some good news, according to Mass Live. The injury can heal on its own with some simple rest, which is the route that Amendola and the Patriots will take in hopes of avoiding any offseason surgery.

Luck for him. He'd probably get a dibilitating paper cut when he filled out the insurance forms.

You know a guy is injury prone when the headline is that he's not having surgery this offseason...

Ever had a groin strain?
It's brutal, hurts and takes weeks/months to heal.
Surgery doesn't help unless it's a muscle tear.

He has no ties to Pasadena other than his Trojans lost there in 2012.

His only appearance in the Rose Bowl....not the New Years Day event, either.

The only thing that hurts worse is having to rest it. Boing!

The Guy's always injured!

This is not good news. Your longus tendon is usually the last thing to go.
