Chargers TE Hunter Henry suffered a torn ACL in Tuesday's OTA session, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. "Did it during a drill, running downfield, untouched," Schefter tweeted. Freed from Antonio Gates' shadow, Henry was a prime breakout candidate entering his 3rd NFL season. He'll now miss the entire 2018 campaign. With Virgil Green now sitting atop the depth chart, the Chargers might consider bringing Gates back. The loss of Henry dings QB Philip Rivers' fantasy outlook and frees up targets for WRs Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Tyrell Williams and Travis Benjamin.

Chargers TE Hunter Henry (knee) is active for tonight’s game against the Steelers. HC Anthony Lynn said Friday that Henry will be on a snap count in his 1st action since Week 1, but he only needs a handful of targets to turn in a nice fantasy outing.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Chargers TE Hunter Henry is "trending towards returning to the field today." Henry is obviously not a safe fantasy bet in his first game back from a leg fracture. But in the volatile current TE landscape, he's an immediate option.

Chargers TE Hunter Henry (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Steelers. He put in a full practice on Friday. HC Anthony Lynn said that Henry will be on a snap count if he plays, but he'd still be a viable fantasy starter considering the dearth of quality options at the position. Of course, the late kickoff makes this a tough situation for fantasy owners. We’ll look for an update on Henry on Sunday morning.

Chargers TE Hunter Henry (knee) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. He's 4-and-a-half weeks removed from an injury that was expected to sideline him for 4-6 weeks. Henry has a shot to play against the Steelers on Sunday night, although Week 7 might be a more realistic target.

The Chargers announced that TE Hunter Henry suffered a tibia plateau fracture to his left knee in Sunday's win over the Colts. For what it's worth, this is the opposite knee in which he tore his ACL last spring. Henry will "continue to be evaluated" and a timetable for his return "has not yet been determined," per the team's statement. There are 3 instances of a tibia plateau fracture in Sports Injury Predictor's database. Those guys (Nate Burleson, Anthony Hitchens and Daniel Sorensen) missed anywhere from 1 to 3 months. We should learn more about Henry's status over the next few days, but fantasy owners obviously need to plan to be without him for a while. Virgil Green is currently the Chargers' backup TE. (We'll see if they try to bring Antonio Gates back.) Henry's absence will push even more targets to WR Keenan Allen and RB Austin Ekeler.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Chargers are expecting Henry to miss 4-6 weeks.
