The Patriots are dealing with an injury to center Bryan Stork, as he’s battling another concussion.
The oft-injured Stork has suffered concussions in four straight years, Howe noted. This dates back to his final year at Florida State. Stork reportedly suffered the latest head injury during the team’s first full contact practice Saturday. He has not practiced since.
In early September 2015, Stork suffered a concussion that caused the Pats to place him on short-term injured reserve. He did not return until Week 9.
In his absence, second-year pro David Andrews has taken the majority of reps. Veteran guard Josh Kline has also worked at center, snapping to rookie quarterback Jacoby Brissett.
Concussions are nothing to be messed around with, and the team will do whatever they can to make sure Stork is healthy and can get back on the field in a timely manner.
