Henry (calf) returned to a full practice Wednesday.
Henry is thus on track to suit up Saturday against the Chiefs. He's established himself as a more reliable high-end option at tight end over his last three outings, hauling in 16 passes (on 20 targets) for 207 yards and two scores.
Henry (calf) was limited in practice Tuesday.
Henry appeared on the practice report after logging 43 snaps in Sunday's win over the Redskins. The tight end has been limited in practices earlier this season but has never missed a game. Should he miss any time, veteran Antonio Gates would likely see increased offensive reps.
Henry hauled in four passes (on six targets) for 50 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's victory over the Redskins.
Henry turned in a third-straight solid performance in Week 14, bringing in an eight-yard scoring toss from quarterback Philip Rivers in the first quarter. With the Chargers offense rolling and Henry serving at a fairly shallow tight end position, he will be a great fantasy option in most formats over the last three weeks of the season.
Henry came out of Week 13's win over Cleveland with some knee soreness afterward, but it's evidently not something that will impact the tight end's status for Sunday's game against Washington. The 2016 second-rounder logged a season-high nine targets against the Browns, en route to hauling in seven passes for 81 yards
Henry (knee) will be limited at Wednesday's practice, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn downplayed the injury after watching Henry catch seven passes for 81 yards on a career-high nine targets in Sunday's 19-10 win over the Browns. Henry's ability to practice Wednesday, even in a limited capacity, puts him on track for Sunday's matchup with a Washington defense that's yielded the third most receiving yards to tight ends (67 per game), allowing a 69 percent catch rate and 8.6 yards per target.
