On Sunday afternoon the Los Angeles Chargers took down the Baltimore Ravens by a final score of 23-17 to set up a date with the New England Patriots. The win for the Chargers came without one of their key offensive weapons, tight end Hunter Henry, who missed the entire regular season with a torn ACL.
Despite missing most of the season, Henry could provide massive boost when his team needs it the most. Los Angeles announced on Monday afternoon that it has activated Hunter Henry for the Divisional Round.
Here’s the announcement from the NFL.

Henry had enormous promise after his rookie season when he finished third on the team in receiving yards and second on the team in receptions and receiving touchdowns.
Antonio Gates provided a solid outlet for Phillip Rivers in the game against Baltimore, but Henry is a more athletic and versatile piece for the offense.
Los Angeles and New England kick off at 1:05 p.m. ET on Sunday afternoon.
