Week 1 vs. DEN
Receiving: 1 / 18 / 0 on 2 targets
Henry is a nightmare to cover, and early on it looked like Denver may have a problem stopping him. His first and only catch was a big one for 18 yards, but a thigh injury he sustained earlier in the week prevented him from doing more in this game.
Week 2 vs. GB
Receiving: 1 / 5 / 1 on 3 targets
Henry was only marginally more involved this week than last. He did see more snaps this week, however, and the Bengals did make more of an effort to get the ball to him downfield, though not successfully. Henry's touchdown catch was a familiar one, a high pass he snatched out of the air in the back of the end zone on a slowly developing cross.
Week 3 vs. PIT
Receiving: 1 / 19 / 0 on 3 targets
The Bengals haven't yet given Carson Palmer enough time to look downfield, but Henry still isn't a major part of the offense. He's playing only sparingly in two and three wide receiver sets and has yet to be targeted frequently this year. Palmer isn't afraid to look for him when he's on the field, but Henry isn't getting enough snaps to be a major factor.
Week 4 vs. CLE
Receiving: 2 / 36 / 0 on 3 targets
Henry was targeted on a deep sideline route once, but it was underthrown and nearly intercepted after Henry didn't come back hard for the ball. Henry was more competitive on two later targets for good gains on deep in routes. Henry continues to play sparingly in three receiver packages when Laverneaus Coles sits.
Week 5 vs. BAL
Receiving: 3 / 92 / 0 on 5 targets
Henry was a bigger part of the offensive gameplan this week and Carson Palmer frequently looked to him on deep outs and sideline routes. Henry fought and made a one handed catch on a ball down the sideline, then broke away for a long run after the catch only to be tackled inside the ten.
Week 6 vs. HOU
Receiving: 1 / 20 / 0 on 3 targets
Henry saw only limited time in three wide receiver sets again this week, but managed only one catch on three targets.
Week 7 vs. CHI
Receiving: 2 / 26 / 1 on 3 targets
Henry had two catches in the first drive, but wasn't heard from again in the box score. He did a great job getting open in the back of the end zone as Palmer kept the play alive on his touchdown. He is definitely on the same page as Palmer, but his opportunities are limited.
Week 9 vs. BAL
Receiving: 1 / 20 / 0 on 1 targets
Henry saw his usual sporadic playing time in multiple wide receiver packages early. He made a nice sliding catch over the middle early in the second quarter but suffered a broken forearm while being tackled.
