Shark Bites

Patriots TE Hunter Henry suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday's practice, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. The injury isn't believed to be serious, but more will be known after Henry gets an MRI. "The injury is painful and Henry could miss time in the preseason," Reiss adds. We'll keep you updated on Henry's status.

Patriots TE Hunter Henry isn't listed on the Week 1 injury report. He missed all 3 preseason games with a shoulder injury but is ready to go for Sunday's opener vs. the Dolphins. Henry has TE1 potential this season but should be considered a TE2 in his New England debut.

Patriots TE Hunter Henry expects to play in Sunday's opener against the Dolphins. The big free-agent acquisition missed about 2 weeks of practice -- and all 3 preseason games -- with a shoulder injury. That makes him tough to trust in Week 1 fantasy lineups. But we'll keep a close eye on his usage in what figures to be a TE-centric offense.

Patriots TE Hunter Henry (shoulder) was on the field for Tuesday's practice. Per NESN's Zack Cox, Henry didn't participate in team drills. So he's still not a full-go but is clearly making progress in his return from that shoulder injury. Henry should be ready for Week 1.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Patriots TE Hunter Henry is expected to miss "a couple of weeks" with his shoulder injury. Schefter adds, though, that it's "not serious." We'll see whether any more info comes out on the injury itself. But it's the Patriots, so don't hold your breath. Henry's absence can only help the opportunity for TE Jonnu Smith.

After signing TE Jonnu Smith, WR Nelson Agholor and WR Kendrick Bourne on the 1st day of free agency, the Patriots kicked off Day 2 by inking TE Hunter Henry to a 3-year, $37.5 million deal with $25 million guaranteed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Henry's $12.5 million average annual salary is identical to Jonnu Smith's -- although Smith got a 4-year deal. New England suddenly has the league's top TE tandem after trotting out a completely unforgettable group last year. The easy comparison here will be to Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez, who were both top 14 PPR TEs in 2010 and top 3 in 2011. That, of course, came with Tom Brady slinging the rock. Last year's Patriots ranked 31st in pass rate, 31st in pass attempts and 30th in pass yards. HC Bill Belichick is clearly gearing up to chuck it more in 2021, but it's tough to imagine there being enough to go around for both Henry and Smith to post TE1 numbers.
