Chargers’ Tom Telesco Explains Why Hunter Henry Was Place on PUP List

Published

on

Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list in an interesting move considering Henry tore his ACL at the beginning of the team’s OTA’s.

Chargers’ general manager Tom Telesco explained why the team chose to go that route, citing that slight chance that Henry could return from the injury at some point in time during the 2018 season.

“That’s a normal transaction to do since his injury happened before training camp” Telesco said, per the Chargers official website.

“But, it does give us the small opportunity that if his rehab comes along very, very well, late in the year he could possibly come back to play. Now, the odds are much more that he’ll play next year and not this year, we know that. But, we figured let’s keep the window open if we can. I think it’s great for him. He has that little carrot at the end that maybe, maybe he could play. But we’ll be very, very smart with it. Everything would have to perfectly line up. We would never jeopardize Hunter’s long-term prospect with doing something now.

But the opportunity was there and we (did) it so we’ll see where it goes, but that would be way, way down the road.”

Chris Johnson Retires as Titan

Published

Former NFL running back Chris Johnson signed a one-day contract with the Tennessee Titans so that he can retire with the team he has spent the best years, and the majority of his NFL career with.

Johnson also believes that if he was a feature back, he could still surpass 1,000 yards rushing in a complete NFL season

“Shoot, that’s not even a question” Johnson said, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessee Titans’ official team website . You put me in an offense where I’m the starting back, there’s no way I wouldn’t get 1,000 yards,” said Johnson. “I could still do it, but it’s time to move onto the next situation.”

“Tennessee, that’s the first organization that gave me a chance to make my dreams come true,” Johnson said. “I have so many great memories in Tennessee and was able to do so many things with the Titans. It’s an organization I always want to be considered a part of.

“I grew up in Tennessee. I went from being a kid to a grown man here. I might have grown up as a kid in (my hometown of) Orlando, but I was still a kid in Nashville when I got there. The team and the city, they’ve always shown me so much love. I have great memories from my days with the Titans, so many on the field and in the city. I’ve always loved Tennessee, and I always will because I’ve always felt so much love.”
