Rams confirm Amendola done for season because of surgery

St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola was scheduled to undergo season-ending surgery to repair a torn triceps Thursday, the team confirmed.

Amendola suffered the injury during the Rams' Week 1 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. He aggravated the injury in practice last Thursday.

Amendola's expected recovery time is four months.

Amendola led the Rams in 2010 with 85 catches and 689 receiving yards.

The Rams also confirmed that cornerback Bradley Fletcher will miss the rest of the season after tearing a knee ligament in practice Wednesday.
