The New England Patriots are taking on the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 14 of the NFL season. Tight end Hunter Henry scored a touchdown in the game but was then seen getting evaluated for an injury on the bench. He then went into the medical tent for more tests.

Henry had a reception early in the game, but it was called back due to offensive pass interference. His touchdown was his first official reception of the game, and it went for eight yards to push New England’s lead to 14-3.

Henry has played in 12 games this season. He has brought in 32 of his 49 targets for 313 yards and three touchdowns. Despite these numbers, Henry is still the third-best pass-catcher for the Patriots.
