FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The New England Patriots have placed starting center David Andrews and rookie linebacker Josh Uche on injured reserve.

Andrews sat out practice all week with a hand injury and Uche was hampered by a foot injury. Andrews spent all of 2019 on IR with blood clots in his lungs but started the first two games of this season.

The Patriots also elevated offensive lineman James Ferentz, defensive lineman Nick Thurman and receiver Isaiah Zuber from the practice squad to fill open spots on the 53-man roster.

New England hosts Las Vegas on Sunday.
