Chargers tight end Hunter Henry will not be activated for Sunday’s wild-card game against the Baltimore Ravens, according to reports Saturday.
Henry was hopeful to make his season debut in Baltimore after missing all of the regular season after tearing his ACL in May, but the Chargers did not add him to their 53-man roster. ESPN’s Eric Williams was first to report.
Henry returned to practice Dec. 17 and worked with the first-team offense this week.
“I worked hard to get here,” Henry said after his return practice last month. “I feel good. Just excited to get going again. “(The knee has) been responding well. It’s a long process. I tried to attack it from the get go.”
Chargers coach Anthony Lynn didn’t reveal how much Henry would play in his first game in more than a year.
“We would have to see how the game is going,” Lynn said Friday about Henry’s role. “But you can’t put a player out there for an extended period of time who hasn’t played since last December.”
The last time Henry played in a game was Dec. 16, 2017, against the Kansas City Chiefs. He missed the final three games last season with a kidney injury.
