Henry (back) could be an option to return from injured reserve later this season, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
The Ravens placed Henry on IR earlier this week after he was diagnosed with a herniated disc. The move to IR will require Henry to miss at least eight weeks, so if he is added back to the active roster in the minimum amount of time, the defensive lineman would only be available for the final two games of the regular season, as well as any postseason contests to follow. The 24-year-old has made just three appearances this season, logging three tackles and a sack.
Henry was placed on injured reserve Tuesday due to a back injury, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
It previously wasn't clear what sort of injury sent Henry to IR. Regardless, the third-year defensive end is now guaranteed to miss at least the next eight games of the season. Look for seventh-round rookie Zach Sieler, who was a two-time consensus All-American during his final two seasons at Ferris State, to get a chance to help fill the 27.3 defensive snaps per game Henry vacated.

This move comes as a surprise because Henry wasn't listed on the Week 7 injury report and there was no sign that he was injured during Sunday's loss to the Saints. However, Jeff Zrebiec of the The Baltimore Athletic reported that Henry was seen limping around the locker room after the game, suggesting the defensive tackle is nursing a lower-body injury -- and it's also possible this situation could be related to the hernia surgery that caused the defensive tackle to miss the first three games of the season. In any case, Henry's absence should open a door for promising seventh-round rookie Zach Sieler to finally see regular playing time.
Henry (abdomen) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Browns.
Henry is slated to make his season debut this week after appearing in 14 games as a rookie in 2017. He'll provide depth at defensive end behind Brandon Williams and Brent Urban.
Henry (abdomen) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Browns.
Henry was able to practice in a limited capacity each day this week. The Michigan product has yet to play in a game this season as he recovers from a procedure for an umbilical hernia in late August.
