Chargers place TE Hunter Henry on IR

NFL.com - [Full Article]

The Los Angeles Chargers lost a huge game Saturday night to the Kansas City Chiefs. On Tuesday, they announced they lost even more than just their place in the AFC playoff picture in the primetime defeat.

The team placed tight end Hunter Henry on injured reserve after he suffered a small laceration on his kidney in the fourth quarter of the Chargers' 30-13 loss to Kansas City.

Fantasy Impact: 

The team originally said Hunter would miss at least Weeks 16 and 17, but now even if the Bolts make it to the playoffs, they will be without Henry. Gates looks like he'll take over the top spot but hasn't really been a factor this season.
