  • Hunter Henry return?

    Hey guys, it was reported last month that Henry had a chance at returning this month and I was just wondering if there was any update on it?

    http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/2...ers-next-month

    Even Lynn appears to be somewhat optimistic about him returning this season in that above article by noting his progression.

    It would be awesome to get him back by the KC game (but I imagine hed have to at least start practicing in some fashion this wk to be ready by then) since the offense is missing Gordon and in general have gotten very little production from their TEs this season.

    Anyway, Im just wondering if there has been any update on it and I missed it?

    The fact he was cutting was a really good sign. Im hopeful he can come back for the playoffs. he would have killed the Steelers last night who clearly could care less about the middle of the field.

    And welcome to the forum my man. Great to have you.

      seemed the game plan didn't feature TEs getting the ball much last night? I kept wondering early where Virgil Greene was on 3rd downs and then expected at least 1 to Gates trying to convert. I think I saw Culkin in there once in a play? Were they just blocking all game or not featured in the gameplan?

        yeah. I think they were mostly used to help block vs the pass rush. I thought we should have used the screen game more to offset it as well.

          It would be awesome but I think it's more important he has a proper rehab so that he is good to go for seasons to come. Maybe he can contribute by playoff time, who knows?

              Was a little surprised as well. But Allen was essentially doing that for us. I think they put a LB on him close to 8 times.

                    I can't imagine how dynamic the offense would be with a weapon like HH. Would be awesome to see 2 TE set with Henry and Gates/Green.

                    Green has helped our run game immensely.

                      Virgil and Culkin are both great in the run game. When HH gets back, for the playoffs or next season, those 3 guys make a excellent core TE group.

                        Im salivating at the thought of our run blocking with Henry and Catrell added to the mix
                        ASAP \_(ツ)_/

                          Youre right there. Dylan was n excellent blocker at TT.

                            I hope he can get back. A lot of mojo his way. I hope we hear he is working out in pads soon. Dont have much time left in the regular season to get him in shape.

                                Nothing recent, I think he might be active for the playoffs, though. If they bring him back, he'll be a roster exemption initially, then they have to figure out who will get released or IRed... maybe Culkin.

                                  Save him for the post season, if at all.

                                    A source within the organization, who asked to remain anonymous due to the nature of her position,
                                    advised me that Henry would be available for the Super Bowl and no sooner.

                                      Her position? That narrows it down a bit
                                      Moving to LA is not a good business decision, it’s a death sentence.

                                        Stephen A Smith seems to be only media member who really respects Hunter Henry's game.
