Chargers TE Hunter Henry feeling good after return from torn ACL

Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry is already focusing on next season after the team’s AFC Divisional Round loss to the New England Patriots.

Henry made his return to the field after tearing his ACL back in May, but the Chargers had no answer for Tom Brady and company in suffering the 41-28 defeat.

However, even with the Chargers out of the playoffs, that hasn’t stopped Henry from turning his attention to the offseason as he continues to work towards being an offensive playmaker once again.

Here’s what he had to say about returning to action, courtesy of Chargers managing editor Ricky Henne:

“It was definitely just good to be able to get back out there,” he said. “I think that’s huge for going into next year. It’s huge. Like I said, it’s huge going into next year. I worked hard to get back to that moment and so, I’m ready to work extra hard this offseason to get ready to go for next year.”

Henry also went on to discuss how he feels after getting the opportunity to play against the Patriots:

“I felt good,” he said. “I felt really good actually. I mean, I wasn’t my full self probably, to where I would like to be, but I still felt good enough and felt real good out there. It was good to be back out there rolling.”

He can certainly be a huge asset for the Chargers next season, and it was undoubtedly great to see him come back after such a tough injury.

The Chargers will now hope to make a few tweaks in the offseason so they can take another shot at reaching the Super Bowl next year.
