Hunter Henry returns in a big way in Chargers loss
It's been a long road back for Hunter Henry over the past two seasons, but he came back in a big way. Henry returned from a Week 1 tibia fracture to lead the Los Angeles Chargers with eight receptions for 100 yards and two touchdowns. Alas, it was not enough as the Pittsburgh Steelers beat LA by a final score of 24-17.
Henry missed most of the 2018 season with a torn ACL. He returned for the playoffs and looked ready to compete as potentially one of the top ten tight ends in 2019. However, in Week 1 he suffered the knee fracture that sidelined him for just over a month. He returned to full team practice this past week, and it was an impressive return for him on Sunday Night Football.
The tight end position is a particularly weak one, with little consistent depth after the top couple tiers. Henry's performance moves him quickly into a top ten option. And considering he's only owned in 48.7 percent of fantasy leagues, there's a decent chance he might be available in your league.
The other notable bits of news were injuries. Steelers running back James Conner suffered a quadricep that cost him a sizable chunk of the fourth quarter. Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams suffered what appeared to be a leg injury just before the two minute warning. Neither returned after their injuries.
The Steelers improve to 2-4 with the win, while the Chargers drop to 2-4. The Steelers have a bye next week, while the Chargers travel to face the Tennessee Titans.
