It has been reported that Saints wide receiver Devery Henderson, who suffered a head injury against the Redskins, did in fact endure a concussion after taking a blow from his backside.
Henderson did not practice Wednesday or Thursday, with team trainers being very cautious. News has leaked that Henderson will not being playing in week two against the Carolina Panthers. Henderson’s absence is detrimental to the Saints, as he is the team’s number two receiver and a very decisive one at that.
Losing Henderson should not entirely immobilize the Saints offense, although as of lately the Saints’ receiving division has thinned out due to player injuries. Drew Brees has been leading his offense and can make any of the Saints’ receivers look like the NFL’s best.
There is no table slated for Henderson’s return. During this much needed resting period, it’s better that Henderson sits out and heals 100 percent for future gaming victories.
Saints wide receiver Joseph Morgan will be the likely candidate to replace Henderson, and more often then not will gain the attention of quarterback Drew Brees.
