Derrick Henry Injuries
Derrick Henry suffered an injury to his right foot during a spring scrimmage. His injury has caused some concern. He is likely to miss the rest of the 2021 NFL season, but he could return in time for the playoffs. In addition to his injury, he has also been dealing with a strained calf.
Derrick Henry broke a metatarsal in his right foot
The Tennessee Titans are still unsure of the extent of Henry’s injury, but the star running back suffered a broken foot during Sunday’s game against the Colts and will undergo surgery to stabilize the bone and relieve pressure. Though the injury is expected to sideline Henry for several weeks, the Titans hope that he will return to action during the playoffs.
In a statement, Henry thanked the team’s medical staff and teammates, and expressed gratitude to fans for their support during his recovery. The 6-foot-3, 247-pound running back currently leads the NFL in rushing yards and touchdowns with 10. With a win over Houston on Sunday, the Titans will be assured of clinching the AFC’s No. 1 seed for the playoffs, their first since 2008.
He strained his calf during a spring scrimmage
Derrick Henry strained his calf in a spring scrimmage for Tennessee Titans on Tuesday, and the team is unsure when he will return. The running back has missed the last two seasons, but the Titans are a good bet to get him back in the lineup. After all, he had a breakout second half last season, rushing for a team-high 1,059 yards and 12 touchdowns. In addition to Henry, the Titans have several other running backs that could fill in for him, including Dion Lewis, Jeremy McNichols, Dalyn Dawkins and Alex Barnes. While none of those running backs are guaranteed to be as good as Henry, they’ll have plenty of time to prove themselves.
Though he will miss a few preseason games, the injury doesn’t appear to be serious and he should be able to return in time for week one. However, the Titans won’t have a full offensive line for the first two weeks of the season. Besides, the Titans will be playing a new right guard, so the offensive line’s alignment will be in flux until the regular season starts.
He could miss the rest of the 2021 NFL season
Derrick Henry may miss the rest of the 2021 NFL season after suffering a season-ending injury on Sunday. The Tennessee Titans’ wide receiver is expected to undergo a MRI after the incident. The injury occurred in the first quarter against the Colts. Henry was seen limping on the sideline with his shoe off. The injury was not a serious one, but it will be a setback for the Titans.
After suffering a foot injury in the game against the Colts on Sunday, Derrick Henry underwent an MRI on Monday. The injury is not serious, but it will require surgery.

He could return in time for the playoffs
Titans running back Derrick Henry could return in time for the first round of the playoffs. The Titans have been without Henry since he underwent foot surgery in November. His injury is a Jones fracture, which requires six to eight weeks to heal. While he may return to play before the playoffs, there are concerns that he could refracte his foot.
Titans running back Derrick Henry has been rehabbing since suffering the season-ending foot injury in Week 8 against the Colts. According to Titans GM Mike Vrabel, the running back could be back in time for the playoffs. The team has until 4 p.m. ET on Friday to make the move official. During the regular season, Henry rushed for 937 yards and 10 touchdowns. However, he was unable to drive for the first five weeks after the injury. Despite this setback, Henry is a hopeful player who could be back on the field in time for the playoffs.
