Injury update: Patriots C David Andrews limping, getting x-rayed

New, comments

The Patriots starting center needs to be healthy.

The New England Patriots defeated the Miami Dolphins 31-24, but they did not leave unscathed.

QB Jimmy Garoppolo hurt his shoulder, while players like S Patrick Chung, LB Jamie Collins, and TE Martellus Bennett all got off the field slowly at various times during the game.

Add one more name to the list:

Sure, why not?

Andrews is the starting center and he’s an extremely important part of the offense.

If Andrews misses any time, rookie Ted Karras is the likely starter at center, while fellow rookie Joe Thuney could see time at center, too.

Hopefully this is precautionary and Andrews is fine and ready to play on Thursday because this roster is already dangerously thin on the offensive line. They can’t afford to lose anyone else to injury.

We’ll provide updates when available.
