LA Chargers’ Hunter Henry suffers tibia plateau fracture
The Los Angeles Chargers have declared that tight end Hunter Henry endured a tibia plateau fracture to his left knee during Sunday’s win against the Indianapolis Colts.
According to the team, Henry will last to be evaluated and the interval for his return has not yet been determined. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Henry’s injury is expected to sideline him four to six weeks.
Together with Henry out, Virgil Green will take on an enlarged role for the Chargers. They have Sean Culkin at the place.
It’s another injury setback for Henry, who overlooked the 2018 season with a torn ACL. He returned to play at the Chargers’ playoff loss to the New England Patriots.
The Chargers are without security Derwin James, who is facing three months out after suffering a stress fracture in his fifth metatarsal last month.
Pro Bowl running back Melvin Gordon also stays absent as he seeks a new contract.
