Patriots Center David Andrew Sent to Hospital With Blood Clot; Season Ending Potential

Patriots Center Blood Clot

The New England Patriots offensive line may have to continue without their starting center, indefinitely.

Due to a blood clot in his lungs, center David Andrews has been hospitalized. The starting center missed practice on Monday, but the gravity of the situation was underrated. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport confirmed the news later, Monday afternoon.


Ted Karras, a 2016 sixth-round draft pick, is next in line at the center position for the Patriots. As a result of having only five starts in the past three seasons, the Illinois alumni will be faced with inexperience while filling Andrew’s shoes. Karras will be one of the two new starters on the New England offensive line. Isaiah Wynn is the second.

Although the loss of Andrews in a considerable blow to the offensive line, the Patriots’ coaching staff is one of the most experienced in the league. It will be up to o-line coach Dante Scarnecchia to piece his unit back together.

As of now, there is no predictable return for Andrews as the condition he is facing is very serious. The story is still developing and news on the matter will be given as soon as it is available.
