"He is expected to be training again soon."
Henderson made 26 starts for the Reds last season, but was forced to pull out of England's Euro 2020 squad due to a hip injury.
Speaking to United's media team last week, the keeper said he was looking forward to getting back playing after his spell out.
"Obviously I was devastated at the time, when I had to pull out of the squad, but I had an injury ongoing from the Burnley game last season and I was really struggling," he said.
"I had a really bad left hip and I needed it to be addressed and I took a scan when I was away with England.
"I tried to keep it quiet because obviously I wanted to be involved and not miss any games towards the end of last season, I just wanted to keep the momentum going.
For me, it was something I needed to get sorted so having a break and getting my head right and then coming back in early and getting everything sorted so I’m ready for the season is something I’m looking forward to.
