Derrick Henry’s season with the Titans may not be over.
According to an update by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry may be slated to return by the start of the playoffs, should he stick to a 10-week timeline from his Jones fracture injury.
The running back’s original timeline injury, first sustained during a Week 8 win against the Indianapolis Colts, scheduled Henry to return by January.
Per Rapoport’s update, “… rehab for the All-Pro rushing champion is going so well that Henry is in line to return for the playoffs if Tennessee makes it in — or potentially Week 18 if the Titans face a win-and-in situation.”
Adrian Peterson, Jeremy McNichols, D’Onta Foreman and Dontrell Hilliard have helped fill in the void during Henry’s absence.
“I know that he’ll be around our team as soon as he can,” announced coach Mike Vrabel. “I know that it’s important to him. I know that’ll be important to our team. We’ll have to move on without him in the short term.”
Henry ended his eight-week run with 937 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns.
