No timetable for Derrick Henry’s return from lower leg injury

Titans running back Derrick Henry remained out of practice on Sunday and there’s no word on when he might be able to get back into action.

Henry was spotted in a walking boot after missing a couple of days of practice. Head coach Mike Vrabel said on Friday that Henry was “day to day” to return to action, but his answer was a bit different on Sunday.

Vrabel said that there was no timetable for Henry’s return from the lower leg injury. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the team is not worried about the issue being a concern over the long term, but it does sound like a good chance that he’ll be out of practice for the near future.

Dion Lewis, David Fluellen, Jeremy McNichols, Dalyn Dawkins and Alex Barnes will get a bit more work as long as Henry is out of the lineup.

  1. Between Taylor Lewan missing the 1st four ganes and this Titans Fans might as well get ready for 2020…going to be pointless to watch this injury and suspension riddled disaster….and thats coming from a die hard titana fan.

  2. This guy reminds me of Ajayi, he has couple/few good games out of 16 and everyone acts like he’s the next coming of Emmitt Smith or Barry Sanders!

  3. Last season became a disaster in week 1 for the Titans, and this season the carnage happened on the first day of training camp. At least they are preventing me from getting my hopes up this time.

    Ignorant comment. You can say what you want about Henry’s play, but he has a pretty healthy career thus far.

  5. Perhaps Alex Barnes will get some chances in training camp. Barnes is a physical freak – not quite as impressive of a size/speed combo as Henry, but quite impressive nonetheless.

  6. The time table is he will wait until the rest of the NFL has played 6-7 games and are all beat up. Then 3-4 weeks to get up to game speed and he’ll play well the last 5-6 weeks. It’s his MO he plays well at the end of the season never all season and never early in a season. Over-rated.
