The prodigal Tight End is indeed returned.
Hunter Henry was activated Monday and was a full participant in today’s practice. This is fantastic news for the Chargers going into Foxborough to take on the Patriots this weekend. Not only will he provide another valuable weapon for the Chargers offense, especially in the red zone, he presents a challenge to the Patriots in that there is no tape on him this year for them. They can only go on tape from previous years and hope the Chargers use him similarly.
Melvin Gordon did not practice but head coach Anthony Lynn said this was planned rest to help his knee and that they would see how he looks the rest of the week.
Finally, he is not mentioned on the injury report, but Brandon Mebane returned to the team today. As most, if not all of you have heard, his daughter tragically passed away last Thursday. I cannot imagine how heartbreaking this must be for him and his family. He has said that he will still play. All of our thoughts and prayers are with Brandon and his family.
