The New England Patriots released offensive tackle Antonio Garcia with a non-football injury designation on Friday, according to multiple media outlets.

Garcia, a third-round selection in 2017, never played a down for New England. He was placed on the non-football illness list before last season due to blood clots in his lungs.

A third-round draft pick out of Troy, Garcia was placed on blood thinners and lost at least 40 pounds, according to media reports in Boston.

Although Garcia had been expected to compete for playing time this season, the Patriots beefed up their offensive line by acquiring tackle Trent Brown from the San Francisco 49ers.

New England also used the first of its two first-round draft picks, No. 23 overall, to select Georgia offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn.

Despite the loss of longtime left tackle Nate Solder in free agency, the Patriots have a glut of offensive linemen. The team released lineman Jason King on Thursday hours after a report surfaced that left guard Joe Thuney will undergo foot surgery.
