Henne agreed to a two-year deal with the Chiefs on Monday, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports. The 34-year-old missed the first two months of the season after fracturing his ankle in August, and he slotted in behind Matt Moore -- who the Chiefs coerced out of retirement -- once he returned from injured reserve in early November. Henne never saw game action in 2019, but he seems likely to enter the 2020 campaign as the top backup to Patrick Mahomes.
Henne did not record an offensive snap during the 2019 season. Henne served as the No. 3 option on Kansas City's roster behind Patrick Mahomes and Matt Moore in 2019. Even during the three-game span in which Mahomes was sidelined due to a dislocated kneecap, Henne's duties never extended beyond serving as Moore's backup. The 34-year-old is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March.
Henne (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Vikings, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports. With Patrick Mahomes (knee) inactive Sunday, Henne is slated to back up Matt Moore in his return to the team's QB mix after being activated from IR on Saturday.
Henne (ankle) has been activated off injured reserve and is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Vikings. Henne, who fractured his ankle toward the end of August, returned to practice near the end of October, ultimately setting the stage for his midseason return. Considering the Chiefs waived backup Kyle Shurmur on Saturday, it seems likely Henne will be available to back up Matt Moore in the likely event Patrick Mahomes (knee) misses a second consecutive week.
Henne (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports. Henne isn't eligible to come off injured reserve until Week 9, but his return to practice suggests that the veteran quarterback should be ready by then. The 34-year-old's status has gained a degree of added import recently in light of Patrick Mahomes (kneecap) dealing with an injury that impacts his short-term outlook.
