Damn. Adam Schefter tweeted late Tuesday night that Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry suffered what is believed to be a season-ending torn ACL during a drill. The team plans to get a second opinion Wednesday.
It’s a tough blow to Henry in what was set to be his breakout season. The Chargers signed Virgil Green to replace Antonio Gates, but may bring back Gates for another season in light of this news. Gates played limited snaps (47%) last year en route to 30 catches for 316 yards and 3 touchdowns. He would be a streaming option if he’s playing starter-type snaps (70%+).
