Absorbing new offense
Henry, who has spent more time in Nashville this offseason compared to previous years, has been been in town for all six of the Titans' voluntary OTAs, including Tuesday's minicamp, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
The Titans' clear-cut top back noted that his increased offseason presence stems from wanting to get up to speed with the team's new offense under coordinator Tim Kelly. "It's a completely new offense, and I'm just coming in here trying to learn everything, and get used to the terminology," Henry noted, while adding "(I wanted) to try and get on it as early as I can and learn (the offense)" and "get some reps in so when I get back, I'll be ready to go in camp." Per Wyatt, the 29-year-old, who logged 349 carries in 16 games in 2022, "looks to be in great shape" at this stage of the offseason, while also looking "smooth running and catching the ball." As the coming season approaches, Henry is poised to maintain his high-volume role in Tennessee's offense, while 2023 third-rounder Tyjae Spears and 2022 fourth-rounder Hassan Haskins are in line to compete for complementary snaps in the team's backfield.

Tops 100 yards in loss
Henry rushed the ball 30 times for 109 yards in Saturday's 20-16 loss to the Jaguars. He added one reception for 19 yards.
As expected, Henry was the focal point of the Tennessee offense, and he tallied his highest carry total since Week 8. He wasn't particularly efficient, but he helped the Titans maintain a lead for the majority of the game. Henry also topped 100 rushing yards for the fourth consecutive contest, which brought his yardage total on the campaign to 1,538. Also important for fantasy purposes, Henry racked up a career-high 33 receptions across 16 games. He'll return to Tennessee in 2023 and is likely to remain the driving force behind the offense.
Full practice Tuesday
Henry (hip) practiced fully Tuesday, John Glennon of SI.com reports.
Prior to sitting out last Thursday versus the Cowboys, Henry managed two limited sessions due to a hip injury. With a full practice under is belt to start Week 18 prep, he's now in line to reclaim his role as the Titans' unquestioned top running back ahead of Saturday's scheduled 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff. For the season, that's amounted to 23.4 touches for 120.5 yards from scrimmage per game and 13 rushing TDs in 15 appearances.
Henry (hip) participated in practice Tuesday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Henry was held out last Thursday against the Cowboys due to a hip issue that capped him to two limited sessions. As the Titans resume preparation for Saturday's scheduled 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff, the running back was spotted working through drills with team trainers, according to Davenport. Ultimately, Henry's activity level will be revealed later Tuesday.
Henry (hip) is inactive for Thursday night's game against the Cowboys.
Henry, who the Titans listed as a limited practice participant Tuesday and Wednesday, approached the contest listed as doubtful, so it's not a surprise that he'll sit this one out and focus on being ready for the team's AFC South title showdown against the Jaguars in Week 18. In his absence versus Dallas, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site relays that Hassan Haskins figures to get the bulk of Tennessee's backfield work Thursday, with Julius Chestnut mixing in. Additionally, Jonathan Ward is up from the practice squad to provide further RB depth.
Not expected to play Thursday
Henry (hip), who is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game against the Cowboys, is not expected to suit up, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Henry is listed as doubtful despite coming off back-to-back limited practices, and it appears that Hassan Haskins and Julius Chestnut will be tasked with leading Tennessee's backfield versus Dallas' stout defensive front. The outcome of Thursday's contest won't impact the Titans' chances of attaining the AFC South crown, so Henry's focus may well simply be making sure he's at 100 percent form for Week 18's pivotal divisional matchup against the Jaguars. Official word on Henry's status will come prior to Thursday's 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff.
