The Patriots have yet to say anything about the status of receiver Danny Amendola, who appeared to have suffered a potentially significant concussion (yes, they all are) on Sunday against the Saints.

The team’s actions on Tuesday spoke volumes; per a league source, the team brought in receivers Jordan Shipley, LaQuan Williams, and Devon Wylie for tryouts.

Also getting a look-see was tight end Brandon Barden.

Amendola has appeared in only three games this year, with 16 catches for 159 yards and no touchdowns.

Curiously, the Pats didn’t bring in any other players for tryouts on Tuesday, despite reports that linebacker Jerod Mayo could be done for the year with a torn pectoral muscle.
