Chargers activate former Arkansas TE Hunter Henry ahead of playoff game at New England
Hunter Henry spent all season watching the Los Angeles Chargers from the sideline after tearing his ACL in May.
But now the former Arkansas tight end is making a return to the field for the most crucial stretch of the season.
The Chargers added Henry to the active roster on Monday, ending his months-long stint on the Physically Unable to Perform list. Los Angeles had maintained all year that Henry could return if the team reached the playoffs, and he’ll do just that as the Chargers prepare to face New England in the Divisional Round of the playoffs Sunday.
The former second-round draft pick has made 81 catches for 1,057 yards and 12 touchdowns in his young NFL career. He should give Philip Rivers and the Chargers a boost as they try to reach the Super Bowl, though it’s unclear how much he will play.
