The Patriots got some good news during the first round of the NFL Draft.

David Andrews passed along a positive update relating to his health via Instagram, saying: I’m excited that I’ll have the opportunity to play the game I love again. When and whatever the nfl season looks like I’m just thankful that I’ll be able to get back to competing with my teammates and coaches. Go pats.

The center missed all of last season due to blood clots in his lungs.

This is great news for the Patriots given his skill and leadership qualities, but it is worth noting nothing is certain given the seriousness of what happened last year, so the team may need to have a solid backup in place as a precaution.

I know 2020 has affected everyone in ways we couldn’t have imagined prior. But with the draft over the next few days a lot of dreams are gonna be realized for a lot of players entering the league. During this time there has been a lot of time for reflection on the past, present and future. As to the future I’m excited that I’ll have the opportunity to play the game I love again. When and whatever the nfl season looks like I’m just thankful that I’ll be able to get back to competing with my teammates and coaches. Go pats
