I wrote yesterday about how the Patriots could’ve been in trouble when they found out Hunter Henry had a shoulder injury from Sunday practice. Well, breathe easy Patriots fans! Hunter Henry will not be missing any significant time with the Patriots. Adam Schefter reported today that Hunter Henry will only miss a few weeks of the preseason. This sets Henry up to be on time to play in the September 12th season opener against the Miami Dolphins.
Patriots’ TE Hunter Henry now is expected to miss “a couple of weeks” with the shoulder injury he suffered last weekend that is “not serious”, per source.

So now that we know that Hunter Henry won’t miss any significant time, here’s what it means going forward.
Henry will Still be Ready for the September 12th Season Opener
The Patriots will be taking on the Dolphins on September 12th at 4:25 PM EST. This is big that Henry is on time to play in this game. The Dolphins have been improving on defense under head coach Brian Flores. Sound familiar Patriots fans? So Henry’s pass catching abilities as well as his blocking ability on the run will be huge. If Henry was going to be out for this game, that would’ve been a crushing blow to the Patriots offense.
Given His Injury History, This is a HUGE Relief
This is obviously a big win for the Patriots. The last thing that this team needed was a huge injury to the offense heading into the regular season. We’ve already heard all of the negative talk going on about this Patriots offense. We didn’t need to have a guy known for injuries get another injury that would have him out for a significant period of time.
Take a huge breath in and a huge breath out Patriots fans. Hunter Henry seems like he is going to be okay. It could’ve been a lot worse than the outcome actually showed. So now, let’s get Henry healthy and ready for week one against Miami. The revenge tour begins September 12th at Gillette Stadium!
