Henry (sports hernia) will not suit up against the Bengals on Thursday, freelance NFL writer Jeff Zrebiec reports.
Henry is still recovering from offseason sports hernia surgery and remains week-to-week. The second-year defensive lineman looks in line for a key defensive role whenever he does recover, but Brandon Williams will remain the uncontested starter at Baltimore's right defensive end position for the time being.
Henry underwent surgery for an umbilical hernia and will be out for several weeks.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Henry will be considered week-to-week once the regular season begins. The second-year defensive lineman was in the hunt for a starting gig thanks to his potential as a run-stuffer. His absence will hurt the defense early; the Ravens open with games against Buffalo's LeSean McCoy, Cincinnati's Joe Mixon, Denver's Devontae Booker and Pittsburgh's Le'Veon Bell over the first four weeks of the season.
Henry had four tackles (three solo) and a sack in Saturday's win over the Colts.
Henry's season sack total now sits at 3.5, and he's had a fairly productive season for a defensive tackle seeing limited snaps. The 23-year-old shouldn't crack the IDP radar in Week 17 for the Ravens' matchup with the Bengals.
Henry had two tackles (one solo) and a fumble recovery in Sunday's win against the Lions.
Henry has been a utility asset on the Ravens' defensive line, as he is listed as a backup, but he consistently plays over 40 defensive snaps. The second-year pro has a decent stat line too, with 27 tackles, 2.5 sacks, five pass breakups and two fumble recoveries through 10 games.
