The Patriots had a huge hole in the offensive line this season after center David Andrews announced he was out for the season due to blood clots. Andrews, who remained active around the team, hung around Foxborough to help out Dante Scarnecchia and the offensive line. David has high hopes of returning to game action in 2020.
Andrews was asked about his health and future.
“I feel great,” Andrews said. “I have some doctors appointments coming up and hopefully that goes well and then we’ll see from there. So pretty optimistic and really hope everything comes back good here in the next month… I’m not ready to be done playing football. So if there’s any chance that I can go play football, that’s what I’m going to do.”
When asked by an audience member if that’s why New England missed the Super Bowl, Andrews laughed,
“No, that’s not why, “I don’t think I could have helped that much. So it was kind of a different year for me. Different role I guess. Try to do things the help out the guys. Just being there to be a voice helping things out with some of my experiences. Trying to see what I can see to help them out.
