Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry returns to practice

NFL: Washington Redskins at Los Angeles Chargers Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Chargers are tied for the best record in the conference following last Thursday’s amazing comeback victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. With two games left to play in the regular season, they have a very realistic chance at claiming the one seed, getting a bye, and hosting a playoff game in the divisional round at StubHub.

They have gotten to this point while being without their young star tight end, Hunter Henry. He was lost for what at the time was expected to be the entire season back in the Spring. Now, however, Henry is back at practice:

Despite being on the PUP, Henry could play as early as this weekend against the Baltimore Ravens. That seems an incredibly remote possibility, but especially following this morning’s report, it seems there is a real chance for him to play in week 17 against the Denver Broncos.

The Chargers have one of the two or three best offenses in the National Football League and the return of Henry would clearly make them even better. This is exciting news, indeed.
