Henry fractured the upper part of his left tibia during Sunday's 30-24 overtime win over the Indianapolis Colts. He was injured during the second half but returned to the game and played in overtime. He had four receptions for 60 yards, including a 17-yard catch in overtime.

This is the second straight season that Henry has been seriously injured. He tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during offseason workouts last year but returned for the playoffs.

Henry will continue to be evaluated but the timeframe for his return has not been determined. Los Angeles (1-0) is at Detroit this week.
