With Anthony Miller expected to be activated Week 2, per Aaron Reiss of The Athletics, Amendola will have competition for snaps in the slot.
Miller was inactive for Week 1 in what essentially was a coach's decision but likely due to the team being cautious after he suffered a shoulder injury in the preseason. Amendola came up big for Houston six days after signing with the club. In just 17 snaps, he snagged all five targets and scored a touchdown. Miller, who spent all of training camp with the Texans and presumably has a better grasp of the playbook than Amendola, could steal opportunities from his fellow wideout Week 2 at Cleveland.
