Andrews (calf) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets.
Andrews had to exit New England's Week 16 Monday night loss to the Bills because of his calf injury, and he was unable to log even a limited practice session coming into Sunday's regular-season finale. Having been ruled out Friday, the 28-year-old concludes his 2020 campaign with 12 game appearances. He missed all of last season while dealing with an issue related to a blood clot in his lung.
Andrews suffered a calf injury and is questionable to return to Monday's game against the Bills.
The veteran appears to have aggravated the lingering calf issue he suffered last week against the Dolphins. Should he remain sidelined for the rest of the contest, look for Joe Thuney to take over at center.
Andrews (calf) is active for Monday's game against the Bills.
The 28-year-old sustained the calf injury last week against the Dolphins but is good to go for Monday's contest. Andrews should start at center for New England, per usual.
Andrews (calf) is considered questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
A career-long Patriot, Andrews has sat out three games in 2020, almost equal to the four missed contests he accumulated over his first four years in the NFL. A Week 15 midgame issue only adds to an injury-riddled season for the Georgia product, after he was forced into an IR stint upon sustaining a late-September thumb injury. With New England's playoff hopes eliminated given Sunday's loss to Miami, there is less incentive to rush the 28-year-old back into action.
Andrews (thumb) was activated off injured reserve Saturday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
The 28-year-old underwent thumb surgery after Week 2 and moved to injured reserve, but he's back on the active roster after missing the past three games. Andrews should reclaim his starting role at center for New England.
Andrews (thumb) returned to practice Wednesday and was designated for return from IR by the Patriots, Jim McBride of The Boston Globe reports.
Andrews underwent right thumb surgery, and he's resided on IR since Week 4. Now that he's been designated for return, Andrews can return to the lineup as early as Sunday's game against the 49ers. He'll likely assume his usual starting role at center once healthy, but as long as he's out, Hjalte Froholdt will continue to handle starting duties.
The Patriots placed Andrews (thumb) on injured reserve Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Andrews recently had right thumb surgery and will now be forced to miss at least three games. Since the Patriots have a Week 6 bye, he won't be eligible to return until Week 7 versus the 49ers. Hjalte Froholdt -- a 2019 fourth-round pick -- is expected to start at center until Andrews can return.
Andrews (hand) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Raiders.
Andrews underwent right thumb surgery and will be forced to miss at least one game. Expect Hjalte Froholdt to start at center for the Patriots.
Andrews (hand) underwent right thumb surgery this week and is not expected to suit up versus the Raiders on Sunday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
Andrews underwent surgery to address an issue on the thumb of his snapping hand, and he appears to be in danger of missing multiple contests. Hjalte Froholdt, who spent most of 2019 on injured reserve, stands to draw the start at center if Andrews is indeed forced to miss time. The placement of New England's bye week, which will come after the team plays three more games, could be a factor in deciding whether to place Andrews on IR.
Andrews announced Sunday that he intends to retake the field in 2020 after consulting his doctors and family, Ryan Hannable of WEEI.com reports.
Andrews missed the entire 2019 campaign due to blood clots in his lungs, but he nonetheless has no plans to opt out for 2020. Entering the final season of his three-year, $9 million contract extension, the 28-year-old will work to reclaim his role as New England's starting center during training camp.
Andrews indicated that he's "ready to get back" after missing last season due to blood clots in his lungs, Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald reports.
It remains to be seen when the Patriots will take the field again, but it looks as though the center plans to be with the team at that time, with an eye toward reclaiming his place in the middle of New England's offensive line. The 27-year-old is approaching the final season of the three-year, $9 million contract extension that he signed in May of 2017.
Andrews hopes to return in 2020 after missing the entire 2019 campaign due to blood clots in his lungs, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports. "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."
Andrews' absence was a tough hurdle for the Patriots to overcome, as he was their starting center and captain. Ted Karras started 15 games in Andrews' place. There's no guarantee Andrews will be ready for the team's offseason program, but he doesn't view this as a career-threatening issue. How his tests go in February will determine how quickly he can get back on the field.
The Patriots placed Andrews (illness) on injured reserve.
Andrews is dealing with a serious issue relating to a blood clot in his lung. The veteran center will sit out the 2019 season and turn his full attention towards making a complete recovery. In Andrews' absence, Ted Karras and Russell Bodine are New England's top options at the center position.
Andrews was released from the hospital Monday after being treated for blood clot in his lung, Jim McBride of The Boston Globe reports.
Andrews is expected to miss significant time as he continues to deal with this very serious issue. A leader on the Patriots line, Andrews has started 66 games since joining the team as an undrafted free agent in 2015. Look for more updates to come over the next handful of weeks, but don't be surprised if the center isn't active for Week 1.
