FOXBOROUGH -- A day after Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola missed his first practice of training camp, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said he was “day-to-day.”

Amendola was also not at practice when the Patriots took the field after Belichick’s news conference.

He was among the same group of six players missing Tuesday’s practice, along with defensive end Jermaine Cunningham, cornerback Brandon Jones, tight end Rob Gronkowski, defensive tackle Armond Armstead, and wide receiver Mark Harrison.

Amendola was hit in the back of the head on his sixth and final reception of Friday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

He left the field but returned two plays later. He was the intended target on what ended up being Brady’s final pass attempt of the night, a third-and-7 try.

Amendola, who has struggled with injuries in the past and played in just 12 games over the past two seasons, signed a 5-year, $31 million contract in March to replace Wes Welker as the Patriots’ slot receiver.
