Patriots center David Andrews said he hopes to return to the field next year, after missing the entire 2019 season because of blood clots in his lungs.

Via Mike Reiss of ESPN.com, Andrews said he’s hoping to be cleared soon.

I feel great,” Andrews said. “I have a bunch of doctors’ appointments in February, [hopefully] get all that cleared up, and be good to go for next year.”

The 27-year-old said he thought he had pneumonia during the offseason, and the clots were diagnosed at the end of the preseason.

“I’m not ready to be done playing football. If there is any chance I can go play football, that’s what I’m going to do,” Andrews said. “You really take pride in being out there and that’s what I want to do. I want to play football. Maybe coach some day, but not for a long time.”

He was around the team this year, but his absence was one of many problems for an offense that never found its footing all year.

  1. Be curious to see if Bill takes him back. Wonder if he was able to workout/train at all this year. He was excellent with Brady because of his smarts, but if they move on from Brady (can’t believe I just typed that!)he might not fit a less experienced QB since he is undersized for a Center. Hopefully it won’t be topsy-turvy all off season like it seems to be starting out. Hope Tom is back with at least some sort of O players. Go Pats!

  2. Wonder if he might be moved to guard to replace Thuney gone in free-agency for big contract.

  3. A person’s health is of the highest importance. That said, I really hope the dude is back. The Team missed his presence this season.

  4. I hate the Patriots….but not that much.Hope he recovers enough to make it back on the field

  5. Get well soon but center wasn’t the problem this season karras played his butt off and I was proud of him right and left tackle were the issues along with FB on the offense.
