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.”
