The Los Angeles Chargers announced Wednesday that tight end Hunter Henry suffered a tibia plateau fracture to his left knee in the week 1 game against the Colts.
Henry will continue to be evaluated and he hasn’t been ruled out to return later in the season. He was also hurt last season, which resulted in the Chargers calling Antonio Gates out of retirement.
The 25-year-old tight end had four catches for 60 yards in the season opener. In his career, he has 85 catches for 1,117 yards and 12 touchdowns.
There is no reported timetable for his return, but ESPN’s Adam Schefter has said that the Chargers thought the injury would keep him out for four to six weeks.
