Chargers TE Hunter Henry Suffers Knee Fracture, Potentially Out 4-6 Weeks


Update: Per Adam Schefter, the Chargers believe TE Hunter Henry‘s knee injury could sideline him for 4-6 weeks.

The Chargers announced that TE Hunter Henry suffered a tibia plateau fracture to his left knee during Sunday’s season opener, per Jeff Miller.

The team said they’re continuing to evaluate Henry and the timeframe for his return has not yet been determined. Los Angeles worked out free-agent TE Luke Willson on Tuesday. 

Henry missed nearly all of the 2018 season following a torn ACL during OTA’s, returning for the Chargers playoff loss to the Patriots. Henry caught four passes for 60 yards against the Colts in Week 1. 

Henry, 24, is a former second-round pick of the Chargers back in 2016. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $6.38 million contract that included $3.98 million guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $1.03 million and $1.32 million over the final two years of the agreement.

In 2017, Henry appeared in 14 games for the Chargers and caught 45 passes for 579 yards receiving and four touchdowns. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 3 tight end out of 74 qualifying players.
