As the Los Angeles Chargers get ready to make a second-half postseason push, they could get an unexpected boost from a player they were not counting on.
Chargers tight end Hunter Henry, who tore his ACL during OTAs this past May, has a chance to return to action next month, league sources tell ESPN.
Henry's return still would be a longshot, according to sources, but it is a shot -- and it is more than most were expecting when he initially suffered the knee injury it in a non-contact drill last spring, the story said. Henry's return would come at the end of the regular season, making him a risky play if he's activated in time for your fantasy playoffs. But given the struggle fantasy teams are having at TE this year, keep an eye on Henry. The story went on to say Henry is running and squatting, his strength is returning, he has not suffered any setbacks and his attitude is good because he feels so good, according to sources.
