The Broncos are placing Henderson (thumb) on injured reserve, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.

A 2017 third-round pick, Henderson missed the final two preseason games and likely would've been buried on the depth chart to start the year. Rather than using a roster spot on a developmental player, Denver will take advantage of the thumb issue to stash Henderson on injured reserve. Henderson may need surgery, in which case he'd miss extended time even if he hadn't been placed on IR.
