Denver Broncos Travis Henry stands a chance of not playing this Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. The swelling in his knee did not subside as was hoped and kept him out of Thursday’s practice. Assuming Henry practices today, that alone would increase his chance of playing this weekend; regardless, this will probably be a gametime decision.
Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan told Bill Williamson of the Denver Post regarding Henry’s injury status, “He was too sore to practice. We’ll have to see.” In the meantime, Henry has something else just as important to worry about – he is waiting on a decision regarding his possible NFL drug suspension. He is expected to know the decision most likely before Denver plays Chicago on November 26. At that time, he will know if he will either be suspended or if he has won his appeal.
Henry’s appeal is based on testing of hair samples, a polygraph test that was administered and the amount of THC from matijuana that was found in his system. In addition, Henry is pursuing a lawsuit over the issue in New York. It is safe to say that things will be interesting for the next couple weeks for Henry, and personally, I think he is in deep trouble.
