Henderson sustained the injury during the Eagles’ recent League Cup defeat to Manchester United.
He was making his debut for Palace but endured a cruel twist of fate as he pulled up with a thigh injury just 17 minutes into the match at Old Trafford.
The incident occurred when Henderson was clearing the ball, leaving fans and the coaching staff worried about the extent of his injury.
This setback is not the first time Henderson has had to grapple with a thigh issue.
The 26-year-old shot-stopper had previously undergone surgery during the summer after injuring his thigh while taking a goal kick for Nottingham Forest against Leicester City in January during his loan spell.
Henderson’s arrival at Selhurst Park was met with excitement, with the Eagles shelling out £20 million to secure his services in the closing days of the summer transfer window.
However, this unfortunate injury has cast a shadow over his immediate future with the club.
Manager Roy Hodgson said (via Palace’s official website): “He had an initial scan. It wasn’t very positive. He’ll have another scan in a week’s time.
“We may be lucky that it shows somewhat less damage, but it didn’t look like good news.”
Forest had expressed interest in re-signing Henderson during the summer transfer window.
However, concerns about his recurring thigh problem ultimately led them to abandon their pursuit of the talented goalkeeper.
Palace will be hoping for a positive outcome to Henderson’s scans having invested heavily to secure his services this summer.
