Tony Garcia missed the 2017 season due to blood clots in his lungs

Nobody had any idea what was going on with Tony Garcia when it was announced his season was over in October.

It looks like we know now, though. Garcia was forced to miss the entire year because of blood clots that were found in his lungs. 

He is expected to make a full recovery, thankfully.

However, one thing that may concern the Patriots is that he lost 40 pounds during his treatment. When he was drafted, he weighed 302 pounds, so he will need to get back up around that weight in order to get back on the field.
