The New England Patriots' 2022 season has been defined by instability. Between coaching changes and injuries to key players, there have been a lot of moving parts this year, which might explain why the Patriots are only 5-4.

Thankfully, New England is getting some stability back in Week 11 with the return of a crucial offensive player.

David Andrews Injury Update

New England's offense should get a big boost this week from the return of center David Andrews, who will play for the first time since suffering a concussion on a dirty hit by the Chicago Bears in Week 7.

The Patriots have missed Andrews, who's been regarded as one of the league's best and most reliable centers throughout his seven-year career. The 6-foot-3, 300-pound lineman has been a fixture on New England's O-line since 2015, proving to be a critical component towards the end of the team's dynasty.

While the Patriots were fortunate to win both of the games that Andrews missed, they'll be happy to have him back for their Week 11 home game against the New York Jets. He'll try to help lead New England to victory in this pivotal AFC East clash as 3.5-point home favorites on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
