Stacy Andrews hospitalized
By Ohm Youngmisuk
The New York Giants will be without offensive lineman Stacy Andrews, who is in a hospital with pulmonary embolisms in both of his lungs.
The team's backup offensive lineman was admitted to Hackensack University Medical Center Saturday night and he is expected to be released on Monday. The Giants say Andrews' blood clots are believed to have originated in his legs, before breaking up and traveling to his lungs.
Ronnie Barnes, the team's senior vice president of medical services, said Andrews is receiving treatment and most likely will be released Monday.
The Giants have used Andrews, 30, mostly as an extra offensive lineman. But losing Andrews is a blow to their offensive line depth with starting left tackle Will Beatty out for the year following eye surgery.
