Saying that he had a partial tear of the posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, running back Travis Henry prepared for practice Thursday afternoon, knowing that how he fared on the field on this day could well determine whether he could line up against the team that released him in March.
“I feel like I can play, but I’ll see what I can do today; that’s going to determine when I get back,” he said in the locker room.
A brace covered Henry’s knee, but he noted it was for practice-time use only.
“I’m not going to wear it in any games,” he said.
While Henry was in uniform and warming up for Thursday’s session, he is not expected to practice Friday. Head Coach Mike Shanahan announced at his press conference Monday that Henry’s hearing with the league will take place Friday in Phoenix.
POSTSCRIPT, 4:32 P.M. MST: Henry had limited participation in Thursday’s practice.
