Giants offensive lineman Stacy Andrews is in Hackensack University Medical Center and will not be in uniform for the team's game today against the Green Bay Packers in MetLife Stadium.
Andrews was admitted to the hospital last night with pulmonary embolisms in both lungs. The blood clots are thought to have originated in his legs, broken up and traveled to his lungs.
Ronnie Barnes, the Giants' senior vice president of medical services, said Andrews is receiving treatment and resting in the hospital and will most likely be released tomorrow.
Andrews, 30, is an eight-year NFL veteran in his first season with the Giants. He played in nine of the first 11 games and started three of them as an extra lineman/eligible receiver. Andrews did not play in the victories over Miami on Oct. 30 and New England on Nov. 6 because of a back injury.
