Chargers tight end Hunter Henry returned to practice on Monday for the first time since tearing his ACL in an offseason minicamp according to the team’s official website.
Henry remains on the reserve/PUP list, but there is a possibility the Chargers could get him back for the playoffs.
“Don’t be surprised to see him work his way back in,” Head Coach Anthony Lynn told the media before practice. “He may do some things on the side this week. He may start that as early as today.”
It would be a surprise if Henry were active for Week 17, and he certainly won’t play this week. Henry’s Monday return to practice opens a 21-day window to participate in drills and potentially be added to the 53-man roster.
