Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry is open to signing a contract extension with the team. 'It's always good to get a promotion at your job,' Henry said on Tuesday, June 14. 'A promotion is always good. I'm trying to work through that but I'm currently still under contract. If that's what the future holds, then yeah, that'd be great.'
Fantasy Spin: It was reported in May that the Titans were considering a contract extension for Henry in order to lower his future cap hits. Many experts are down on Henry going into 2022 after he suffered a serious foot injury in 2021, but he remains an elite RB1 until we see a decline.
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry will be participating in the mandatory minicamp this week, according to a source.
Fantasy Spin: Henry has not been on the field much this offseason but should practice this week. He will continue to see a significant amount of carries this upcoming season and should be one of the first running backs selected in fantasy drafts.
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry has not been participating in voluntary workouts so far this offseason.
Fantasy Spin: Henry was one of the most used running backs in the NFL when healthy and should see plenty of touches again in 2022. He should be a first-round pick in fantasy leagues and will be a weekly starting option.
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry could get a one- or two-year contract extension in order to lower his 2022 and 2023 cap hits of $15 million and $15.5 million, respectively, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.
Fantasy Spin: Henry, 28, is coming off the first major injury of his career, and while there are concerns about his future viability because of that and his age, this would seem to indicate the Titans don't exactly feel the same. Until he actually shows decline, Henry is an elite RB1 going into 2022.
The Tennessee Titans could look to draft a successor to running back Derrick Henry in this year's draft. Henry had the first major injury of his career last season and missed nine games with a Jones fracture in his right foot. Henry's first sign of vulnerability could lead Tennessee to start thinking about his eventual replacement. The Titans averaged 147.6 rushing yards per game in eight games with Henry last year and averaged 135.8 rushing yards per game in nine games without him, so the team may not need to invest a high pick on a running back in the draft. But D'Onta Foreman signed with the Panthers as a free agent. If the Titans draft a RB this year, they could choose to err on the side of caution and spell Henry more often than in previous seasons to extend his longevity.
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel was named the 2021 Associated Press Coach of the Year on Thursday night. Vrabel, who also received a contract extension from the Titans this week, won the award over Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur and Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor. Vrabel led Tennessee to their second straight AFC South title and third straight playoff appearance in 2021, also earning the top overall seed in the AFC playoffs. The fourth-year head coach kept the Titans on track despite losing the league's leading rusher at the time in Derrick Henry to a broken foot in Week 8. The Titans used an unprecedented 91 players during the season due to various injuries and COVID-19.
The Tennessee Titans announced contract extensions for both head coach Mike Vrabel and general manager Jon Robinson on Tuesday. Terms of the extensions were not disclosed. With injuries to running back Derrick Henry and wide receivers A.J. Brown and Julio Jones during the regular season, Vrabel still managed to lead the Titans to 12 wins and the No. 1 overall seed in the AFC. However, the Titans were upset in the Divisional Round by the Cincinnati Bengals. In his four seasons in Tennessee as the head coach, Vrabel has gone 41-24. The Titans have made the playoffs in three of the last four years, including each of the last three seasons, but they've won just two of those five postseason games under Vrabel.
Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (foot) rushed for 62 yards on 20 attempts and a touchdown in the 19-16 Divisional-Round loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. He returned to action for the first time since Week 8 and was outpaced by teammate D'Onta Foreman 66-to-62. The 28-year-old led the team in attempts but only averaged 3.1 yards per carry. He made it through the game with no setbacks and will enter the 2022 season fully healthy. Henry rushed for 937 yards and 10 touchdowns while catching 18 passes for 154 yards over eight games in 2021. "King Henry" is projected to be a top-five pick in 2022 fantasy drafts.
Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill completed 15-of-24 attempts for 220 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions vs. the Cincinnati Bengals in the Divisional Round on Saturday, Jan. 22. He ran three times for 12 yards and was taken down once. RB Derrick Henry rushed 20 times for 62 yards and a touchdown. RB D'Onta Foreman managed 66 yards on four attempts, including a 45-yarder. WR A.J. Brown caught five of nine targets for 142 yards and a touchdown, while WR Julio Jones produced 62 yards on six of seven looks. DL Jeffery Simmons posted seven solo tackles, one assist, three sacks, three tackles for loss, and a trio of quarterback hits. LB Zach Cunningham racked up 10 tackles, including eight solos, and a tackle for loss.
Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (foot) will not be on a snap count and won't have any limitations in the Divisional Round game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday, according to sources. The Titans coaches will keep a close eye on him to watch his conditioning and comfort, however. Henry practiced in pads this week to get ready to take hits since he hasn't played since Week 8, and he will play with a metal plate and five screws in his surgically repaired foot, as well as a metal plate in his shoe. The 28-year-old was the NFL's leading rusher at the time of his injury, and he nearly eclipsed 1,000 rushing yards in eight games. If he's 100% and not limited in any way, King Henry could very well be worth his lofty DFS price in his first game back.
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (foot) will start in the AFC Divisional Round playoff game against the Cincinnati Bengals Saturday, Jan. 22. He can run without any reservations and is expected to receive his normal workload, although he will be monitored. Henry had a steel plate and five screws inserted into his left foot and will also have a metal plate inside his left shoe as added protection.
Fantasy Spin: Even though Henry hasn't suited up for a game in more than two months, he will be an integral part of the Tennessee offense this afternoon. He can be a viable starting option in all postseason fantasy leagues.
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (foot) was activated from the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Jan. 21.
Fantasy Spin: It is not known if Henry will be able to handle his normal workload but should be a big part of the running game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.
The Tennessee Titans officially activated running back Derrick Henry (foot) from Injured Reserve on Friday, and he is expected to start on Saturday against the Cincinnati Bengals in the Divisional Round. The 28-year-old hasn't played since Week 8, but he looked fine in practice this week and is one of the NFL's best RBs, if not the best, when he's completely healthy. It's why DraftKings has Henry listed as the most expensive running back at a $7,500 salary despite his long layoff. There's inherent risk at that lofty price tag, especially against a Bengals defense that was pretty strong against the run this year, but Henry is a different beast entirely when he's at full speed. D'Onta Foreman, who took over lead-back duties with Henry hurt this year, will now become the change-of-pace back in the Titans run-first offense.
Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (foot) is expected to be activated from Injured Reserve and play in the Divisional Round against the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday. Henry is fully healthy 11 weeks after surgery to fix a broken fifth metatarsal in his foot. He got through the week of practice just fine while taking contact and should be activated from IR on Friday. The 28-year-old had 937 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns on 219 carries in just eight games before his injury, and he also added 18 receptions for 154 yards on 20 targets. Henry is arguably the best and most dominant running back when healthy. It remains to be seen if he'll be limited at all after the long layoff, but we'd venture to guess that Henry will be the clear lead back against Cincinnati on Saturday. With Henry's return, D'Onta Foreman's fantasy value is all but lost.
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (foot) is expected to come off Injured Reserve Friday, Jan. 21.
Fantasy Spin: Temper expectations as he has missed three months after foot surgery. He'll be a high-end RB2 in non-PPR formats this weekend.
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (foot) is expected to play in the Divisional Round playoff game, but the team will not make an official decision on his status until Friday, Jan. 21.
Fantasy Spin: Henry has missed multiple weeks because of the injury but likely will receive most of the work at running back if he is active. He is one of the top running backs when healthy and can be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.
Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (foot) is progressing well, but the team won't make a decision on his status for the Divisional Round against the Cincinnati Bengals until Friday, according to head coach Mike Vrabel. Henry has been taking contact in practice this week, but the Titans must first activate him from Injured Reserve if Henry is healthy enough to play on Saturday for the first time since Week 8. All signs are pointing to the 28-year-old being active against Cincinnati, and if he is, he should be the team's workhorse running back. Henry could be a bit risky in his first game back, especially as the most expensive RB at DraftKings, but he's also been the most dominant RB in the league when he's been healthy the last couple of seasons.
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (foot) is progressing well in his recovery and expected to play in the AFC Divisional Round game versus the Cincinnati Bengals, but head coach Mike Vrabel told reporters that a final decision will not be made on Henry until Friday, Jan. 21.
Fantasy Spin: Vrabel added that the team is adding "a little more to his workload each day (in practice)," suggesting it is likely a formality he will play on Sunday. The Titans could take a cautious approach and let D'Onta Foreman take a handful of carries to ease their offensive centerpiece back into game action, but it is more likely Tennessee gives Henry his usual 20-plus touch workload and rolls the dice on him holding up after a two-plus month layoff.
Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Trey Hendrickson (concussion) was able to get in a limited practice on Tuesday after he suffered a concussion in the wild-card win over the Las Vegas Raiders last Saturday. Barring a setback this week, Hendrickson could pass through the league's concussion protocol and be able to play this Saturday in the Divisional Round against the top-seeded Tennessee Titans. The 27-year-old has been vital to Cincy's pass rush, earning his first Pro Bowl nod with 34 tackles (21 solo), 12 tackles for loss, 27 QB hits, three forced fumbles and a career-high 14 sacks in 16 regular season games. Hendrickson recorded a sacks against the Raiders last week as well. The Bengals D will have the tall task of trying to stop running back Derrick Henry (foot) if he returns from Injured Reserve.
Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (foot) was in pads and was taking contact during practice on Tuesday. Henry didn't look to be limited at all, but the Titans want to see a full week of practice from him before they activate him from Injured Reserve. The 28-year-old should be active for the Divisional Round game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday, though, barring some sort of setback. It's fair to wonder if he'll be the same dominating King Henry if he plays, since he hasn't played in a game since Week 8 after undergoing foot surgery. Henry has been the most explosive and productive RB in the NFL when he's healthy, however, and his $7,500 DraftKings salary (highest among RBs) for the week is indicative of just how good he is despite a long layoff.
