Falcons To Place G Josh Andrews On IR

The Falcons will make an adjustment to their preferred starting lineup come Week 1. The team had planned to use Josh Andrews as one of its starting guards, but a recent injury will force the team to change course.

Andrews suffered a broken hand during practice Tuesday, and Tom Pelissero of NFL.com tweets the Falcons will place him on IR to start the season. While this surgery is not expected to sideline Andrews too long, he must sit until at least Week 4.

Atlanta added Andrews in late March, signing the former Eagles, Colts and Jets blocker to a one-year deal worth the veteran minimum. Andrews and Chris Lindstrom were expected to be the Falcons’ Week 1 guard starters. Andrews, 30, has started just four career games — all coming with the Jets last season.

Jets Sign OL Josh Andrews

The Jets are adding another lineman. Agent Brett Tessler announced on Twitter that Josh Andrews has signed with New York.

The former undrafted free agent out of Oregon State spent the first four seasons of his career with the Eagles (alongside current Jets GM Joe Douglas). He spent the past two years with the Colts, appearing in nine total games.

In his career, the 28-year-old has appeared in 25 regular season games. The lineman has mostly played offensive guard and center throughout his career.

The Jets have been busy adding to their offensive line this offseason. The team has already signed center Connor McGovern and offensive tackle George Fant, and they re-signed offensive guard Alex Lewis.

Colts To Sign Josh Andrews

The Colts are expected to sign center/guard Josh Andrews off the Eagles’ practice squad, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL.com (on Twitter). Starter Ryan Kelly is likely to miss time with a knee injury suffered on Sunday, so Andrews will provide them with depth in the interim.

Kelly went down in the fourth quarter of the Colts’ 38-10 win over the Titans on Sunday. It’s especially unfortunate since Kelly may be in the midst of his best season to date. The former first-round pick ranks as Pro Football Focus’ No. 8 center in the NFL and has started in all ten of the Colts’ games so far. Meanwhile, the 5-5 Colts kept their playoff hopes alive with the win over the Titans and have a chance at the postseason if they finish strong over the final six games.

Andrews, 27, entered the league as a UDFA with the Colts in 2014. He has 16 games of experience between 2015 and 2016, but has not seen live action in the last two years.
