    Hunter Henry Out For Season

    Wednesday, December 20, 11:49 AM

    Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry has officially been placed on the season-ending Injured Reserve due to a lacerated kidney. Henry was injured in last week's game with the Chiefs, but the extent of the injury was unknown until the move was made on Tuesday. The young TE had racked up 579 receiving yards and four touchdowns this season, and he had become a regular escape outlet during Philip Rivers' stellar season. With Henry sidelined, future Hall-of-Famer Antonio Gates will likely resume his previous role as the team's primary tight end.
