Chargers place TE Henry on COVID-19 list
The Los Angeles Chargers placed tight end Hunter Henry on the reserve/COVID-19 list, coach Anthony Lynn said Thursday.
Lynn didn’t divulge whether Henry tested positive or was placed on the list due to contact tracing. Henry missed practice Wednesday due to what the team termed an illness.
Henry ranks second on the Chargers with 60 receptions and 613 yards. He is tied for second with four touchdown passes.
Donald Parham will start in Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos if Henry can’t play. Parham, a rookie, has five catches for 75 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games (three starts) this season.
Star wideout Keenan Allen (hamstring) will likely be a game-day decision, according to Lynn. Allen has team-best totals of 100 receptions for 992 yards and eight scores.
Allen, a four-time Pro Bowler, is closing in on his fifth career 1,000-yard season.
