Player Outlook
Henne will again be the No. 2 quarterback in Kansas City behind Patrick Mahomes, but Henne is not worth drafting in the majority of leagues. Should something happen to Mahomes then Henne would be worth adding off waivers in two-quarterback and Superflex leagues. We hope that doesn't happen because we want Mahomes to stay healthy all season, so hopefully Henne remains on the bench for most of the 2022 campaign.

  • Chiefs' Chad Henne: Returning as Mahomes' backup

    Henne agreed Wednesday to re-sign with the Chiefs on a one-year, $2 million contract, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Henne has proven capable of commanding Kansas City's offense in emergency circumstances across his five-year stint with the team, so his re-signing doesn't come as any sort of surprise. Of course, Henne only really carries fantasy intrigue as a roster handcuff to Mahomes, and even then only in leagues that start multiple quarterbacks.

  • Chiefs' Chad Henne: Sees action in relief

    Henne completed 11 of 16 pass attempts for 82 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 27-3 loss to the Titans. Henne entered the game late in the fourth quarter in relief of Patrick Mahomes, who suffered a head injury. Mahomes was cleared of a concussion and told the media after the game that he was feeling fine, according to Adam Teicher of That likely means Henne will find himself back on the bench for a Week 8 matchup against the Giants, though it will be worth monitoring Mahomes' practice participation throughout the week.

  • Chiefs' Chad Henne: Tosses two touchdowns

    Henne completed 23 of 32 passes for 218 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 38-21 loss to the Chargers. Henne made his first start since 2014 as the Chiefs rested star quarterback Patrick Mahomes with the AFC's top seed already secured. In his rare extended action, Henne was fairly efficient, finishing with a 111.2 passer rating while throwing touchdowns to Byron Pringle and Darwin Thompson. With Kansas City now shifting its full focus onto the playoffs, however, Henne will return to his usual backup role behind Mahomes.

  • Chiefs' Chad Henne: Starting Week 17

    Head coach Andy Reid said Wednesday that Henne will start the Chiefs' Week 17 game against the Chargers, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports. With the Chiefs having already secured the AFC's No. 1 seed in the playoffs, Reid confirmed he would rest some key starters Week 17, most notably Patrick Mahomes. Henne has already made two appearances this season in garbage time, but Sunday's game against the Chargers will mark his first start since 2014.

  • Chiefs' Chad Henne: Enters 2020 as Mahomes' backup

    Coach Andy Reid named Henne the Chiefs' No. 2 quarterback Sunday, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports. Henne suffered a high right ankle sprain and fractured ankle late during the 2019 preseason, causing him to begin the campaign on IR. The injuries didn't allow him to cover for Patrick Mahomes when he sat out Weeks 8 and 9 due to a dislocated kneecap. Instead, fellow vet Matt Moore got the nod, but now that Henne is healthy he'll be the first QB called upon for garbage-time work or a Mahomes absence in the coming season.

  • Chiefs' Chad Henne: Staying with Kansas City

    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.

  • Chiefs' Chad Henne: No action in 2019

    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.

  • Chiefs' Chad Henne: Resumes backup role

    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.

  • Chiefs' Chad Henne: Off IR, listed as questionable

    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.

  • Chiefs' Chad Henne: Back at practice

    Henne (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday, Adam Teicher of 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.

  • Chiefs' Chad Henne: Still weeks away

    Henne is still weeks away in his recovery from a fractured ankle, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports. Henne isn't eligible to return from IR until Week 9, so his earliest opportunity to suit up will come Nov. 3 against the Vikings. With Patrick Mahomes (kneecap) likely facing a multi-game absence, Henne could be a candidate to take snaps when back to full health. In the meantime, Matt Moore is the top candidate to start under center Week 8 for the Chiefs.

  • Chiefs' Chad Henne: Lands on IR

    The Chiefs placed Henne (ankle) on injured reserve Sunday. Henne will have surgery Tuesday for a fractured ankle. The 24-year-old's placement on injured reserve leaves Patrick Mahomes and Matt Moore as the only healthy passers on Kansas City's roster.

  • Chiefs' Chad Henne: Tosses three passes in Week 17

    Henne saw his first action of 2018 in Week 17 against the Raiders, completing two of his three passes for 29 yards. Barring injury, Henne is slated to serve as the team's backup throughout the playoff run and possibly next season as well. The veteran quarterback should continue to serve as a mentor for second-year star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, but he should see very little in terms of playing time outside of the preseason if he remains on the 53-man roster in 2019.

  • Chiefs' Chad Henne: Delivers serviceable outing in preseason opener

    Henne completed eight of 14 passes for 91 yards with a touchdown and an interception during Thursday's preseason loss to the Texans. Henne did exactly what he was brought in for Thursday evening, providing a stable presence to the backup position in what was a rather lackluster evening for both offenses involved. There's little doubt who will serve as Patrick Mahomes' top backup this season. Though Chase Litton and Matt McGloin both remain on the roster for preseason, the duo is likely competing to be the third quarterback kept through roster cuts.

  • Chad Henne: Joining KC

    Henne is signing a two-year deal with the Chiefs, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Henne made 53 starts for the Dolphins and Jaguars from 2009 to 2014, but he's attempted just two passes the last three years while sitting behind Blake Bortles in Jacksonville. The 32-year-old now heads to Kansas City, where he'll serve as backup and mentor for 2017 first-round pick Patrick Mahomes. The Jaguars are left with Bortles as the only quarterback on their roster.

  • Jaguars' Chad Henne: Questionable for Week 3

    Henne (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports. Henne was a surprise addition to the injury report, although it's likely his illness isn't anything serious. If he isn't able to play Sunday, look for Ryan Nassib to take over as the backup quarterback.

  • Jaguars' Chad Henne: Will enter regular season as backup

    Coach Doug Marrone announced Saturday that Blake Bortles will enter the regular season as the Jaguars' starting quarterback, which means Henne will serve as his backup, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports. The situation was thought to be up in the air as recently as Thursday, so something must have happened to convince Marrone to give Bortles the starting job. Expect him to be on a short leash however, which means Henne could still potentially find his way to the field should Bortles struggle early.

  • Jaguars' Chad Henne: May play in preseason finale

    Coach Doug Marrone said Thursday that Henne may play in the Jaguars' preseason finale with the team's starting quarterback situation still undecided, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official sitereports. Henne got the start Thursday and played the entire first half, but he didn't perform well enough to definitively secure the starting role. He went eight-of-14 for 73 yards with no interceptions or touchdowns, and he was sacked three times. With Jacksonville's starting quarterback gig still up for grabs, look for Henne and Bortles to get one more shot apiece in the Jaguars' preseason finale against the Falcons.

  • Jaguars' Chad Henne: Turns in solid second half

    Henne completed seven of 18 passes for 75 yards and a touchdown, adding five carries for six yards, in Sunday's preseason game against the Bengals. Henne played the entire second half, leading Jacksonville to a pair of touchdowns on six drives, and eventually kneeling twice to end the game. He doesn't have competition for the No. 2 quarterback job, though the Jags might retain sixth-round rookie Brandon Allen as a developmental project.

  • Jaguars' Chad Henne: Re-signs with Jaguars

    The Jaguars and Henne agreed to a two-year, $8 million contract Thursday, Rand Getlin of NFL Network reports. Henne hasn't taken a snap since the midpoint of Week 3 during the 2014 season, but his experience under offensive coordinator Greg Olson provides the Jaguars with an insurance policy for Blake Bortles.
