Could fit with new coach?

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-26

New Titans coach Brian Callahan suggested Friday that he'd like to work with Henry, who is scheduled for unrestricted free agency this offseason, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports. "A player like [Henry' fits into any offense," Callahan said. "If he's open to a return, that fits for us. I'm never going to reject good players. "

The hiring of a head coach that previously served as offensive coordinator for the pass-first Bengals has been taken by some as a(nother) sign Henry is likely to leave Tennessee. Callahan does have a point, however, in part because Henry is probably a better receiver and blocker than he gets credit for. The two other big factors here are: A) money, and B) the possibility Henry wants to play for a team with better Super Bowl odds in 2024. He turned 30 at the beginning of January, three days before running for 153 yards and a touchdown in a 28-20 win over Jacksonville. It was Henry's fourth 100-yard game of the season, boosting his per-carry average to 4.2 yards and allowing him to finish second in the league in rushing yardage (1,167).

Leads Titans to upset win

Henry rushed the ball 19 times for 153 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-20 win over Jacksonville.

In what is likely to be his final game as a Titan, Henry delivered a vintage performance to help the team to an upset win. His longest gain of the day went for 69 yards on a run up the middle, which set up a touchdown to DeAndre Hopkins two plays later. Henry also took a trip to the end zone himself earlier in the contest, ripping off an 18-yard run off the left end for his 12th touchdown of the year. Henry topped 1,000 rushing yards for the fifth time in his career and now has double-digit scores in six consecutive seasons as he heads to free agency.

Held to 12 touches

Henry rushed the ball 12 times for 42 yards in Sunday's 26-3 loss to the Texans. He was targeted once but did not record a catch.

Henry was limited by game script, as the Titans found themselves down by 20 points before halftime. He was held to his lowest carry total since Week 11 as a result and was held under 50 rushing yards for the third time in his last four games. He's masked his yardage shortcomings by finding the end zone twice in four of his last six games, though he's become an unreliable weekly option down the stretch of the fantasy season.

Bounces back with two TDs

Henry had 19 carries for 88 yards with a touchdown and one reception for 11 yards against Seattle on Sunday. He also completed his only pass attempt for a 12-yard touchdown in the 20-17 loss.

Henry rebounded quickly from his worst game of the season against Houston last week by scoring both of Tennessee's touchdowns in Sunday's narrow loss to Seattle. The 29-year-old got a stagnant Titans offense going in the first quarter when he lined up out of the gun and threw his second passing touchdown of the season. Henry has provided fantasy managers with at least two touchdowns in four out of his last five contests. The star tailback will seek vengeance in a rematch against the Texans next Sunday, who held Henry to 10 yards on 20 combined touches in Week 15.

Terrible showing against Texans

Henry rushed the ball 16 times for nine yards in Sunday's 19-16 loss to the Texans. He added four receptions on four targets for one yard.

Henry saw plenty of opportunity -- he earned at least 20 touches for the fourth time in his last eight games -- but that was the end of the good news. He had neither a rush attempt nor a reception of more than six yards, leaving him with his lowest yardage total of the season. Henry should have a chance to bounceback in Week 16 against a Seahawks defense that has been susceptible to opposing rushing attacks this season.

Finds end zone twice

Henry rushed the ball 17 times for 34 yards and two touchdowns in Monday's 28-27 win over Miami. He added one reception on two targets for 17 yards.

The Titans were surprisingly in a neutral game script for much of the matchup, which allowed Henry to maintain the majority of the work out of the team's backfield. He was bottled up on the ground for the entire contest -- his longest rush went for only six yards -- but he managed to find the end zone from one and three yards away. After tallying only four touchdowns across his first 10 games of the season, Henry has now scored six times in the last three contests. He'll face a mediocre Texans' run defense in Week 15.

In line to play Monday

Henry was limited at practice Thursday for rest purposes, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

It's notable that Henry isn't listed with an injury designation on Thursday's practice report, given that he left this past Sunday's game against the Colts to be evaluated for a concussion. Since then, Wyatt relays that Henry has been feeling good, with no concussion symptoms, and will be ready to play in Monday night's game against the Dolphins. The running back thus is set to continue to pace Tennessee's Week 14 backfield, with Tyjae Spears on hand to work in a complementary role.

Avoids concussion

Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said Monday that Henry is not in concussion protocol, John Glennon of NashvillePost.com reports.

Henry didn't return to Sunday's 31-28 overtime loss to the Colts after exiting in the fourth quarter to be checked for a concussion, and Adam Schefter of ESPN reported after the game concluded that the running back was following the protocol. A day later, however, Vrabel said that Henry won't be subject to the protocol ahead of the Titans' Week 14 game against the Dolphins on Miami, with the coach noting that the three-time Pro Bowler felt fine after going through a workout Monday and hasn't been exhibiting any symptoms of a concussion. Assuming Henry doesn't experience any setbacks within the next few days, he should be ready to return to field as a full participant when the Titans resume practicing Thursday. Before departing the loss to Indianapolis, Henry turned in a quality outing for fantasy managers, carrying 21 times for 102 yards and two touchdowns while adding an 18-yard reception on two targets.

Officially in concussion protocol

Henry is in the league's concussion protocol Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Henry departed Sunday's 31-28 overtime loss to the Colts to be checked for a concussion, and he's since been placed in the NFL's five-step protocol. He won't be eligible to suit up for game action until gaining full clearance, which puts the veteran running back's status for the Titans' upcoming Monday Night Football matchup in Miami on Dec. 11 in jeopardy. If Henry misses any time it will signify an opportunity for rookie Tyjae Spears, who rushed the ball 16 times for 75 yards and added four receptions on six targets for 13 yards Sunday, to step up as the lead back.
