Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (foot) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 19. It's his first practice since Day 1 of training camp.

  Titans | Derrick Henry out 2 weeks    Tue Jul 30, 12:10 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (calf) is wearing a walking boot while recovering from a strained calf muscle that is expected to sideline him about two weeks, a source said Tuesday, July 30. The injury is not considered serious, and the team is playing it cautious.

Footballguys view: Calf injuries can be tricky, so we'll want to see him go full speed in practice, if not in a preseason game, before putting him back at his ranking within his tier that he had going into camp. It's good to have some specific information about the injury.

  Titans | Derrick Henry spotted wearing walking boot    Sun Jul 28, 08:35 AM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (leg) was spotted with a walking boot on his left foot after being injured during the first day of training camp Friday, July 26, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation. Head coach Mike Vrabel said Henry was listed as day-to-day and added that the injury was not serious Friday, but did not provide an update on his condition Saturday, July 27.

Footballguys view: We'll need to see Henry on the practice field and hopefully in a preseason game before fully writing this off as a minor injury and non-factor in his fantasy projection this year. For now, it is reasonable to move him down in the stacked third-round RB2 with RB1 upside tier.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (undetermined) and WR A.J. Brown (undetermined) left practice early Friday, July 26, but head coach Mike Vrabel said afterward there's not a lot of concern. '(They're) day to day,' he said.

Footballguys view: Both injuries are not significant, although Brown needs to have a strong rookie camp to get playing time in a Titans receiver group that also added Adam Humphries this offseason. Henry is the key to the offense and should be put in bubble wrap.

  Titans | Derrick Henry expected to carry heavy load    Tue Jul 16, 09:16 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry ran for 625 yards and eight touchdowns on 97 carries in five December games last season. New offensive coordinator Arthur Smith intends to ride Henry in 2019, according to Jim Wyatt of the team's website.

Footballguys view: The Titans figured it out (eventually) with Henry last year. They should now know to feed him the rock early and often as the centerpiece of the offense. Dion Lewis will complement Henry in the backfield this season. Henry is a low-end RB2 with upside for Fantasy GMs.

  Titans | Heavy boxes didn't faze Derrick Henry     Fri Jul 5, 03:33 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry ran for 553 yards when the defense had eight or more men in the box in 2018 - the third-best mark in the league - according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: The Titans offense was all about Henry over the last half of the 2018 season. He should see more stacked boxes this season, but we're expecting him to handle that...again. In the final year of his rookie contract, Henry is set to be used like a true bellcow back and he's a borderline RB1 for Fantasy GMs. He could outperform his current ADP of RB20 (4.01) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Titans | Derrick Henry a load to bring down    Thu Jul 4, 03:28 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry forced 45 missed tackles as a runner in 2018 - tied with Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson and Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson for the most in the NFL, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Henry can make defenders miss with moves, but with his size there are defenders who don't want anything to do with tackling him. When Henry builds a head of steam, he is tough to bring down. The Titans finally figured out how to use Henry about halfway through the 2018 season. Hopefully that plan for Henry continues from the jump in 2019.

  Titans | Derrick Henry on track to be starter    Thu Mar 28, 07:31 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry will be the main running back in 2019 after finishing strong in 2018, according to general manager Jon Robinson. 'He proved that he can step in there and carry the load, and we'll try to put that right back on him,' Robinson said. 'We'll certainly be mindful of the carries that he's getting and the touches that he's getting.'

  Titans | Derrick Henry to be key cog    Wed Feb 6, 11:32 AM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry will be a big part of the offense in 2019 as offensive coordinator Arthur Smith said they plan to run a lot of zone blocking schemes. 'Derrick will be a big part of the offense,' Smith said. 'He has a rare skill set. Derrick's a home-run hitter. Zone is a great starting point for us, but there are a lot of schemes that fit Derrick and fit Dion (Lewis), or whoever else will be on our roster that we will hand the ball (to.) Gaps, pin and pulls, zone reads, but there's a certain mentality that we want to play with coming off the football. We want to be physical and knock people back.'

Footballguys view: The Titans didn't get things right with Henry until December. He should've been the centerpiece of the offense all along. Henry will get the chance to be featured (finally) in 2019. He's a RB1 for Fantasy GMs.

  Titans | Derrick Henry runs wild    Thu Dec 6, 11:22 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed 17 times for 238 yards and four touchdowns in a 30-9 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14.

Footballguys view: Henry saved the best game of his career for a week when no one would have started him because of the matchup and lack of momentum going into the game. It wasn't the wrong move to bench him this week, but we'll likely try to find a way to get him in against the Damon Harrison-less Giants next week.
