Henry joins a talented crew of players on the Stamps’ injured list. Both running back Ka’Deem Carey and receiver Reggie Begelton are on the six-game injured list. The team is hurting at the receiver spot, with Nationals Tyson Middlemost and Jalen Philpot also on the six-game injured list.

The 26-year-old was carted off to the locker room at McMahon Stadium on Saturday night. He went down with a non-contact injury, was helped off of the field and later required the cart to leave the game.

Henry had four catches for 92 yards and a touchdown in Saturday night’s game. In his third season with the Stamps, Henry had 1,023 receiving yards in 2022, along with eight touchdowns. The Stamps signed him to a three-year contract extension last October.

The Stamps are entering into a bye week and will face the Winnipeg Blue Bombers at IG Field on Friday, July 7.
