New England Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola has had an unfortunate history of injuries throughout his career, but don't go reminding him of that.

In a recent interview with WBZ-FM host Adam Jones of The Adam Jones Show, Amendola heard himself indirectly described as "fragile" and "injury-prone" during the interview as Jones began a line of questioning that didn't sit well with the Patriots wideout.

Following the typical New England Patriots code, Amendola clearly wasn't interested in answering any questions about his injury history and he attempted to make that clear after the first question.

"That's not something I really think about," Amendola began his answer, via CBS Boston.

Instead of dropping the issue and changing the subject, Jones continued with the line of questioning, and Amendola hung up as Jones began to describe an injury Amendola sustained as a member of the St. Louis Rams. The exchange, or lack thereof, put the radio station in an awkward position during an interview designed to plug a charitable cause Amendola was supporting. You would have to believe that Bill Belichick would be proud with the bland answers Amendola provided at the beginning of the conversation, but the wide receiver stopped playing along once he felt the questions became a little too blunt.
