The Patriots could be without their starting center for some time, Jeremy Bergman of NFL.com reports.
David Andrews has been hospitalized with a blood clot in his lungs and his season could be in jeopardy, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports, per a source informed. The Athletic first reported the news.
Since signing with New England as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia in 2015, Andrews has been an integral part of Tom Brady’s offensive line. Andrews has played in 71 games and started in 66, including the postseason. He was Brady’s snapper for New England’s last three Super Bowl appearances and two Super Bowl victories.
Andrews doesn’t have much of an injury history. New England signed the starter to a three-year, $9 million extension through 2020 in May 2017. He is set to earn around $3.1 million in 2019.
