During Week 8, Henry suffered a foot injury that sidelined for the remainder of the regular season and despite missing half of the games still manage to be Top 10 in both rushing yards (937 yds) and rushing touchdowns (10 TD).
As one of the top running backs in the league, his return to the field will boost the Titans offense for their upcoming matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals.
“I’m just happy to be back and I’m appreciative of everybody that helped me get to be able to be back and contribute during the playoffs. I am just happy to be back playing football”, said Henry on a statement released by the Titans.
The Titans will face the Bengals on Saturday at 4:30 pm ET in Nissan Stadium.
