When Patriots tight end Hunter Henry had to leave today’s practice, it was easy to be concerned, as Henry has a long injury history. But this time, there was nothing to be alarmed about.

Henry had just a scare and did not suffer a serious injury, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Reporters on the scene described Henry as suffering the injury, going to the sideline to get his ankle re-taped, and then not returning to the practice field for the rest of the session. The specific nature of the injury hasn’t been reported.

Henry is in his first season in New England after playing his first five NFL seasons with the Chargers. He’s coming off a season in which he caught a career-high 60 passes.

    Their drafts have been very good. TE is very hard to draft and suceed with. BB a genius move by doubling down for the best TE in football overnight.

    Check and check.

    Jealousy delicious!

    Right? Teams with 45 mil in cap space are stupid if they spend it. Even though the cba requires a minimum amount of spending they should ignore that because the online GMs said spending cap space is bad.

  4. Asiasi & Keene, last years TE draftees now get to learn behind BOTH Smith & Henry & with a NORMAL offseason should & hopefully start to develop their skills that much quicker & help with depth this year…The acquisition of the two proven TE’s also IMMEDIATELY improves the teams running & passing attack as well as whomever is the QB…..I think that’s great & money very well spent in free agency this year….guess it’s all how you look at things….

  5. The TE signings were good ones, but the narrative seems to become that NE signed the 2 best TE’s in the league. They were the 2 best available in FA, but neither is spectacular. They’re both solid.

    It was as splashy a FA as I’ve ever seen for NE, and probably one of the splashier of recent years – but ultimately, they only marginally improved certain positions. I don’t see that team making a big leap unless one of the QB’s can do the same.

    Pats have a mediocre offense now.

  7. Pats fans(I’m one) drink too much kool-aid. For yrs they knew Gronk was getting more and more injury prone and threatening to retire. Yet they refused to address it in the draft except for a stiff like Izzo. Then they sign another stiff with LaCrosse. Then, in the worst yr for TEs in 10 yrs, they draft 2 stiffs in the 3rd end, Keene and Asiasi. Now they had to sign 2 guys in a panic move, to make up for their mistakes. Hope it works out, but they messed that position up royally.

  8. I would love to hear a cogent argument from people that gave me a ‘thumbs down. Please, tell me where I’m wrong.

    Says the Bills fan who doesn’t know that half the Bills starters are free agents…
