Hunter Henry was poised for another strong season for the Los Angeles Chargers. Now, it looks like he’s going to miss the entire season because of an injury during OTAs.
Henry will be entering his third season for the Chargers. In his first two seasons, he combined for 81 catches, 1,057 yards and 12 touchdowns. The Chargers had previously moved on from Antonio Gates, which would theoretically create more reps and catches for Henry. He was the No. 35 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft after a standout career at Arkansas.
In his time with the Razorbacks, Henry was a three-time All-SEC player and won the John Mackey Award, which is given to the nation’s top tight end.
The injury is a real bummer for both the Chargers, who figured to have one of the most exciting offenses in the NFL next season thanks to players such as Henry and wide receiver Keenan Allen, and Henry, who seemed poised to have a big year. Hopefully, the injury isn’t as bad as initially feared and the Arkansas product is able to return to the field at some point during the upcoming NFL season.
