Gross that they waited til Wednesday to announce this too. Screwed a lot of owners who could've claimed Hock or Waller.

Thank to the beautiful people of the AC forum, I moved Hock to my second claim and ended up getting him. Would have never considered him otherwise.

Still think HH is worth a hold as long as you have a free IR spot. What a shame.

I am starting him so I can drop OJ Howard to fill in a bye week defense.  If he gets zero (out), fine with me.  That's what I expect from OJ.

Lol. Come eat your crow. 

You and anyone else are welcome to use my promotional write up that I just shared with my league:   Tired of your busted tight end? Are you worrying about eating a zero or if Jeremy Sprinkle

As someone who has kept Hunter even thru his lost season this one already killing the dream of having a top 5 TE this year sux..

And I also drafted with someone who used a freaking magazine to draft so naturally they drafted Herndon not knowing he was out for weeks....

My wire looks like this - Jimmy Graham, Vernon Davis, Eifert, Will Dissly....

Gross....

As a sidenote I'm thinking the bolts are gonna be down to throwing to Travis Benjamin a bunch here soon with no Henry, Williams already banged up, and Allen/Ekeler about to be overworked...

Paging Antonio Witten we need you to come catch 3 passes a game please..

Where is Ladarius Green when we need him?!!

From someone who has had a tibial plateau fracture, His season is done. I had the type 1, and it hurts. I was lucky enough to not have soft tissue damage. He might. I think watt missed the rest of the season with the same injury. Even if they put a pin in his bone, its 4- 6 weeks to start rehab!

"The bad news is one never wants to have a fracture, and he will miss time. The good news is this is not season-ending, nor is it comparable to Watt’s displaced fracture that required immediate surgery. Henry should not need any formal surgery with placement of metal, as Watt did.

Henry’s fracture is the kind that cannot be seen on X-ray, so it is hard to place any blame on the medical staff for allowing him to return to the game. Certainly, kudos are due to Henry for toughing it out and continuing to play. And no, there is no indication that he made it worse.

The fracture was likely discovered via MRI. The team can’t risk making it worse with another blow even though he seemed to play well after. Of course, with swelling, Henry is in more pain today and it makes sense he would be using crutches.

The expected return is a minimum of 4-6 weeks, but the team could decide to be safe and use injured reserve with the plan to bring him back. His season is definitely not over. There are even some new techniques to inject calcium into the fracture area to enhance healing and allow for earlier return."

Im no expert, but i was told that if they pinned the knee, you heal faster, not requiring a pin only makes it less likely he comes back sooner. I personally was within a millimeter of needing a pin.Hes now waiting for bone to reheal, so it doesnt continue to shift. I disagree with the article completely. As far as not releasing this sooner, my fracture wasnt seen on the initial xrays. My follow up appt, caught it. The dr had me lay down on a bed. He then yanked my knee to the side. He said i think you have a tibial plateau fracture. I asked why they didnt catch it. He said" because of the placement of this you need to have an xray without weight on the knee. So the second xray caught it, while i was laying down.(i obviously didnt heal as fast as an athlete, nor did i have the care he will have, but best case scenario i see is putting him in your IR until playoffs. that seems wishful to me though.

I drafted him in all my leagues. Feel bad for the kid. He was doing great prior to got tackled in the legs. It was legal but unsafe football play by the defender so the injury could have happened to anyone. To call him injury prone or glass is a little too much. He did came back after the tackle and played total 55 of 59 snaps, which showed his toughness as well as a missed diagnosis by the LAC medical staff. Larry Fitzgerald often said that he would rather the defenders hit him as hard as they can up high than to go for his legs. 

 

Rooting for the kid in real life football to come back stronger than ever. In my fantasy leagues, there are no other TEs that worth picking up, I am forced to hold on to HH, for now.

brutal... in a deep 12 team with 18 roster slots.. can you even drop him???? no right?

 

I'm in a similar situation (12 team w/ 17), and I'm holding until we get more information/progression. His fracture doesn't sound that serious and I've read reports from various "experts" that believe the 4 to 6 week estimation is reasonable. So, yeah, I'd definitely hold in leagues with deep benches.

HH came back in the game after the hit that caused his injury

 

hoping for the 4 week time frame 

Yup. He made his longest catch of the game post injury too. It's a serious injury, but not a season ender.

It's a season ender as far as fantasy is concerned.

By the time you'll get back to trusting him in your lineup again it will be fantasy playoffs or later

Depends on your league, roster size, situation, blah blah blah. 

 

I don't think it's impossible that he could be back sometime around weeks 8-10, if it really is a minor fracture. It's not just about him helping you, it's also about preventing him from eventually helping another team.

you flunked math didn't ya'

Im great at math and I listen to doctors. 4-6 weeks is not happening.

If you want a doctor with fantasy opinions check out Dr. Jesse Morse, orthopedic surgeon. Not Adam Schefter.

From longtime, former Chargers head doctor, David Chao:

"The expected return is a minimum of 4-6 weeks, but the team could decide to be safe and use injured reserve with the plan to bring him back. His season is definitely not over. There are even some new techniques to inject calcium into the fracture area to enhance healing and allow for earlier return."

Different doctors will give different opinions. The truth is, it's too early to tell. Is 4-6 weeks too optimistic? Probably. But if you can afford it (deep league, deep bench), I'd wait to get more information.
