An MRI on Titans rookie running back Derrick Henry on Monday showed that Henry has a calf strain.

Titans Coach Mike Mularkey told reporters that Henry could miss just a day or could miss up to two weeks, depending on how Henry responds to treatment. Henry was injured while warming up for Sunday’s game at San Diego and did not play.

That timetable would make Henry questionable for this week’s game vs. the Packers and also potentially questionable for the Titans’ Nov. 20 game at Indianapolis.

Henry, last year’s Heisman Trophy winner, has played in eight games. He’s averaging 4.2 yards per carry on 53 carries and has one rushing touchdown.

Antonio Andrews was the backup to starting running back DeMarco Murray with Henry out vs. the Chargers.
