Rico Henry's Season-Ending Knee Injury at Brentford
Brentford's defender, Rico Henry, is facing a season-ending setback due to a severe knee injury sustained during their recent 1-0 defeat against Newcastle United, as confirmed by the Premier League club on Tuesday.
Henry had to be substituted in the 42nd minute of the Saturday match after sustaining the injury during a challenge with Newcastle's right back, Kieran Trippier.
Brentford's chief medical officer, Neil Greig, provided an update, stating, "Rico will have to undergo surgery in the next week, and unfortunately, he will have a long recovery period."
Rico Henry, a 26-year-old left back, has been with Brentford since 2016 and holds the distinction of being the club's longest-serving player, having made 203 appearances for the team.
Currently positioned 11th in the Premier League table, Brentford is set to face Everton at their home ground in the upcoming match on Saturday.
