Brentford's Henry set to miss season with knee surgery
Rico Henry suffered the injury at St James' Park but was able to walk off the pitch
Brentford defender Rico Henry is set to undergo surgery on a serious knee injury which is likely to rule him out of the remainder of the 2023-24 season.
Henry, 26, limped out of Brentford's 1-0 defeat at Newcastle in the Premier League last Saturday.
Rico fell awkwardly after a tussle for possession with Kieran Trippier.
Brentford medical chief Neil Greig said the left-back will have an operation "in the next week or so" and faces "a prolonged period of recovery".
