Chargers tight end Henry suffers torn ACL

May 23 2018 4:28 AM

Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry has torn his anterior cruciate ligament and is set to miss the 2018 NFL season.

Henry suffered the non-contact injury while running downfield in a drill during OTAs, according to ESPN. The 23-year-old will have a second evaluation on Wednesday.

Henry caught 45 passes for 579 yards and four touchdowns in 14 games last season.

The 23-year-old has been a dangerous red-zone target for the Charges throughout his two-year career.

He hauled in eight touchdown passes and registered 478 receiving yards as a rookie in 2016. Henry was originally selected by the Chargers in the second round of the draft that season.

Los Angeles could now consider re-signing veteran tight end Antonio Gates, according to ESPN.

Gates, an eight-time Pro Bowler, accumulated 11,508 receiving yards and 114 touchdowns over his 15 seasons with the Chargers.

But, Los Angeles elected not to re-sign Gates in the offseason and he is currently a free agent.
