David Andrews injury: Pats center snaps with off hand at practice originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
David Andrews was back on the New England Patriots' practice field Thursday after missing Wednesday's session with a right hand injury.
That's the good news. The bad news is that the injury is still an issue for the Patriots center, who had his right hand heavily wrapped at Thursday's practice.
Andrews snaps with his right hand, so that's certainly a development worth monitoring ahead of Sunday's game against the Las Vegas Raiders. The Patriots center actually tried snapping with his left hand at Thursday's practice with little success, as you can see in the video player above.
Andrews hasn't missed an offensive snap through two games this season after missing the entire 2019 campaign due to blood clots.
If the 28-year-old center can't suit up Sunday, New England could turn to second-year backup Hjalte Froholdt, or promote practice squad James Ferentz to the active roster.
Andrews' presence Thursday suggests he'll try to play through his injury, but Friday's final injury report will provide more insight on whether he'll suit up vs. the Raiders.
