BOSTON (CBS) –  Wide receiver Danny Amendola will make his return to the Patriots on Sunday after being sidelined for three games with a groin injury.

Amendola is active for New England against the Cincinnati Bengals, giving Tom Brady another veteran receiver to work with on offense.

Amendola suffered the injury in the first half of the Patriots’ Week 1 win over the Bills. He missed time at the end of the half, but returned for the second to finish with a team-high 10 receptions and 104 years in the 23-21 win. He missed the following three games, but continued to practice with the team during the week.

It will be interesting to see how Amendola plays in his return, and how much time he sees on the field. The injury is expected to linger throughout the season, and it doesn’t help matters that it’s raining in Cincinnati today and isn’t supposed to clear up during the game.

Fellow receiver Aaron Dobson (neck) and Kenbrell Thompkins (shoulder) were both listed as “questionable” on Friday’s injury report, but are also active for Sunday’s game.

Seven players are inactive for the Patriots:  special teams captain Matthew Slater, running back Stevan Ridley, new receiver Austin Collie, tight end Rob Gronkowski, offensive lineman Chris Barker, linebacker Steve Beauharnais and safety Tavon Wilson.

The Patriots do catch a break with Bengals starting defensive end Michael Johnson and star corner Leon Hall inactive for the Bengals.
