Wow! ESPN’s NFL insider Adam Schefter started off the month by offering a bombshell. During the Tennessee Titans’ hard fought three-point win against the Indianapolis Colts, Derrick Henry suffered a foot injury. Sources are now telling Schefter that the injury may keep Henry off the field for the remainder of the season. The star running back is set to undergo an MRI on Monday to assess the extent of the damage.
If Henry is unable to return for the Titans this season, it will be major blow for the Super Bowl contender. With a record of 6-2, the Titans currently sit on top of the AFC in large part due to Henry’s play. He leads the NFL with 937 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns. In fact, he has 353 more rushing yards than any other NFL player this year.
Making matters worse, the Titans are preparing for a tough stretch in their schedule. Within the next four weeks, the Titans will play the Rams, Saints and Patriots. Not to mention, one of the team’s backup running backs, Darrynton Evans, also suffered a seasoning ending injury in October. Dontrell Hilliard, Jeremy McNichols and Khari Blasingame will pickup the slack in the meantime.
Titans’ RB Derrick Henry suffered a potentially season-ending foot injury during Sunday’s 34-31 win over Indianapolis, sources reported ESPN. Henry is undergoing an MRI today to determine the full extent of the damage.
