Source: Texans' Amendola has arthroscopic knee surgery for meniscus tear

Texans veteran wide receiver Danny Amendola suffered a knee injury Sunday against the New York Jets, a torn meniscus that required arthroscopic surgery, according to league sources not authorized to speak publicly.

An exact recovery time is still being determined for The Woodlands graduate and if he'll be placed on injured reserve, but typically it requires three to four weeks to make a full recovery. The Texans have three wide receivers on the practice squad: Jordan Veazy, Damon Hazelton and Jalen Camp.

Amendola, 35, has caught 17 passes for 135 yards and one touchdown on 29 targets since signing a one-year, $2.5 million contract. He missed four games with a strained hamstring earlier this season. The former Texas Tech standout has 610 career receptions for 6,099 yards and 22 touchdowns in 162 career games and 72 starts, including stints with the Detroit Lions, New England Patriots and St. Louis Rams.
