The news was delivered by general manager Brian Glain at the NFL combine. Henderson won the starting job last season, but suffered a season-ending foot injury in Week 1. The 27-year-old has started three games in the past three seasons between the Texans and Bills. He signed a one-year contract with Houston this offseason, so he will seemingly be playing for a long-term deal.
Henderson signed a one-year deal with the Texans last March and began the season as the team's starting right tackle, only to suffer a broken ankle in the season opener. Houston will likely look for the 26-year-old to fill the same role heading into the 2019 season.
As expected, Henderson (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Henderson is expected to undergo season ending ankle surgery in the near future after going down in Sunday's season opening loss to the Patriots. Kendall Lamm is the most likely candidate to replace him as the team's starting right tackle going forward.
