    Henderson signed a one-year contract with the Texans on Thursday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports. Henderson hasn't made the expected impact tied to his first-round draft capital, but he was a decent contributor in the Panthers' secondary for the last two seasons. He's likely to fill a similar depth role with the Texans, potentially taking the field in nickel or dime formations.

  • Panthers' CJ Henderson: Enters concussion protocol

    Henderson suffered a concussion and won't return to Sunday's game against the Colts, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports. Henderson's exit will be a blow to the team's secondary, which is already without Vonn Bell (quadriceps) and has also seen Xavier Woods exit early Sunday with a thigh injury. With Henderson sidelined, Troy Hill and D'Shawn Jamison will be the likeliest candidates to see extra snaps against Indianapolis.

  • Panthers' CJ Henderson: Fifth-year option not picked up

    Henderson's fifth-year option was not exercised by the Panthers on Monday, Mike Kaye of The Charlotte Observer reports. Henderson will now be a free agent after the conclusion of the 2023 season.

  • Panthers' CJ Henderson: Absent from injury report

    Henderson (shoulder) was not listed on the Panthers' injury report Thursday. Henderson clear concussion protocol heading into Sunday's win over the Buccaneers, though he was forced to exit with a shoulder injury at some point during the contest. However, this issue appears to have been minor, as the 24-year-old did not appear on Carolina's injury report Wednesday or Thursday. Henderson has compiled 25 tackles and one pass defended on 257 defensive snaps over seven contests this season, and he could see an increased role if starting cornerback Jaycee Horn (ribs) remains sidelined Sunday against the Falcons.

  • Panthers' CJ Henderson: Shouldn't be out too long

    Henderson avoided serious injury after he rolled his ankle during Friday's practice, Schuyler Callihan of SI.com reports. It's unclear how much time Henderson will miss, but head coach Matt Rhule didn't express too much concern about the injury. The 23-year-old defender was traded to Carolina at the beginning of last season after he played just 10 games for Jacksonville. Henderson is currently listed as the No. 3 option at cornerback behind Donte Jackson and Jaycee Horn, but he should continue producing, as he recorded 31 tackles and two passes defensed in 10 games a year ago for the Panthers.

Stanley Thomas-Oliver should see extended snaps Sunday if Henderson can't play.
