Chargers TE Hunter Henry (knee) is active for today's game against the Patriots. He was a full-go in practice all week but still figures to be on a strict snap count in his 1st action game action since May's torn ACL. That said, there's some upside here vs. a New England defense that finished the regular season 26th in Adjusted Fantasy Points Allowed to TEs.

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.
