FOXBORO — Patriots head coach Bill Belichick gave a quick replace on offensive line coach Adrian Klemm on Tuesday morning, saying the crew remains to be working with out him.
Klemm has been absent since Week 10 because of a well being matter.
Offensive line coach Bill O’Brien stated the crew has been in communication with Klemm and disclosed that Belichick helps to fill the void on the offensive teaching employees.
“I know Adrian’s doing better,” O’Brien stated Monday. “We’ve all been in textual content communication with him, and he’s doing quite a bit higher. I don’t need to converse for him. Anytime you lose a man off your employees, it’s robust. But we’ve Billy Yates right here, who’s the assistant line coach who’s performed on this system, does a extremely good job. And we’ve Will Lawing, who coaches the tight ends who has plenty of background with tight ends, offensive line.
“And then obviously we have Bill Belichick, who has a lot of background with that position — tight end and offensive line. We have enough hands on deck, but it’s not ideal, that’s for sure.”
Center David Andrews was requested Tuesday what it’s been like working extra carefully with Belichick on the offensive line.
“I’ve had an obviously good relationship with Coach for a long time. I think he’s doing everything he can to try to help our football team and try to make us play better,” Andrews stated. “Obviously we’ve got to do better up front. It’s just part of it. I think there’s always — we have Billy (Yates). Billy does a great job for us. I think everyone else — Coach is trying to do whatever he can to help our football team. I think that’s — he’s always done that with whatever role he seems is necessary. Right now, that’s us.”
The Patriots have been with out beginning left sort out Trent Brown (ankle/private) for the previous two weeks whereas Conor McDermott has helped fill in. The line allowed 5 sacks within the first half of final Sunday’s 10-6 loss to the Colts.
