Pats place C Dave Andrews on IR

NEWS: The New England Patriots have placed center Dave Andrews on injured reserve with blood clots, ending his season.

ANALYSIS: This is a tough blow for the Pats as Andrews is the anchor of this line at center. He has been hospitalized with blood clots which is a life-threatening issue. He will miss this entire season and will hope to be able to return next year. With an issue like this there is no guarantee. Ted Karras will now snap the ball to Tom Brady. This is a setback, but we have no doubt Bill Belichick will find a way to make it work.
