Chargers LB Daiyan Henley dealing with hamstring injury

Chargers rookie linebacker Daiyan Henley is dealing with a hamstring injury, according to head coach Brandon Staley.

After Wednesday’s practice, in which Henley was a non-participant, Staley said that he sustained the injury in the preseason finale against the 49ers and would not offer a timetable for his return.

Before Henley’s injury was made known, Los Angeles claimed LB Tanner Muse. However, Staley said adding Muse was “unrelated” to his injury.

Henley, the team’s third-round pick, is coming off a stellar summer, earning Pro Football Focus’ highest-graded rookie linebacker from the preseason (81.9).

Henley is currently behind Eric Kendricks and Kenneth Murray on the depth chart. He is slated to be a core special teamer in Year 1, but Henley has flashed enough to get reps on defense in a pinch.

We will continue to update on the status of Henley once further information is released.
