Sad end to Henry's days in Buffalo

Postby Ben_ffc » Sun Nov 28, 2004 5:42 pm

broken leg. out for the season. the following is from rotoworld:

Travis Henry - RB - Bills

Travis Henry has a broken bone in his leg and will not return today.
Tough luck for Henry and the Bills. He could be done for the year, which means his Buffalo career his likely over. His trade value won't be helped any by this. Nov. 28 - 5:25 pm et

Wow that sucks. He was already a sure bet to leave the Bills though.

Hopefully this doesn't make teams a bit scared of signing him, if he's healthy next season he will have a very good year wherever he goes. To think, he was my 3rd round pick and he was off my team by Week 9. :~(

Yeesh, that really stinks. He played on a broken one last year, but if it's a serious injury, I don't think he'll be out there anyway... :,-(

He will start getting some "injury prone" tags that will definitely diminish his trade value. I hope he gets a good start at a new locale.

well, travis is a warrior and a solid back, but mcgahee has me convinced that he can be one of the best in the league. maybe the bills weren't so stupid after all when they drafted him...

arrbez, I think it was an awesome move to draft McGahee. You could see he was going to be a stud back in college. They already had a solid back in Henry that could get them thru the rehab time McGahee was going to have to put in. They brought along McGahee just about right, and now he is ready to rock n roll. Henry is a nice back, but lacks the breakaway ability that McGahee has. I'd have to say the Bills did it right. Good luck to Travis Henry in '05, hope he finds a good situation.

Easy to say that now, isn't it? ;-)

Hindsight is 20 20. But at the time, when Henry was having a great season, and they drafted a RB, of course people are going to say it was a dumb move. It turns out that it was a good move... so I can't really blame the Buffalo doubters when it happened.

Nov 29 Bills' running back Travis Henry has a broken right leg and may miss the remainder of the season. He suffered the injury in Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Views: Henry has been a huge disappointment this season and this just adds injury to insult. He no longer has any value except for in keeper leagues. The Bills will make every effort to move Travis this off-season and he should be a starter for some team next season.


Looks like it's official.

If Henry stays in Buffalo, his value as McGahee's backup is next to zero.

If Henry is traded to replace the departure of, say Edgerrin James in Indianapolis or Shaun Alexander in Seattle for example, where would you rank him? Henry has broken a leg in two consecutive seasons now, which leads me to believe he's got Charles "Ginger" Rogers disease.

Well at least the Bills won't demand much from anyone to get Henry, so that means alot of teams will be interested. Good starting RBs are hard to come by nowadays so they'll be plenty of interest out there.
