BOSTON - A former Packers player may have been in the midst of the confusion Monday but it looks like he came out of the situation a hero.

NFL analyst for ESPN Andrew Brandt tweeted, via @KaveKrew, a photo of what looks like Joe Andruzzi carrying a woman after the explosions that hit the finish line at the Boston Marathon.

Andruzzi was drafted by the Packers in 1997 and was with the team for three seasons. After losing a 17-year-old close friend, he and his wife started the Joe Andruzzi Foundation.
