Titans new OC Arthur Smith said RB Derrick Henry will be a "big part of the offense" in 2019. Henry, of course, exploded for 585 rushing yards and 7 scores over the final 4 games this past season. "He has a rare skill set," Smith continued. "Derrick's a home-run hitter. We are taking another step hopefully with him." Smith was an offensive lineman in college and was most recently Tennessee's TEs coach. It sounds like he's planning to deploy a run-leaning offense featuring 2- and even 3-TE sets. It's all good news for Henry and worrisome for QB Marcus Mariota and the Titans' pass-catchers.

After sitting out on Wednesday and Thursday, Titans RB Derrick Henry (calf) put in a full practice on Friday. “I am ready," he said afterward. “It felt good." The rookie will play against the Packers this weekend but doesn't figure to see more than a handful of touches behind DeMarco Murray.

Titans RB Derrick Henry has been diagnosed with a strained calf, HC Mike Mularkey announced Monday. “That is kind of an injury where a lot of it is pain tolerance," Mularkey added. "It could be a day, it could be up to a couple of weeks." We’ll keep an eye on Henry throughout the week, but he shouldn't be in your Week 10 fantasy plans. Antonio Andrews will serve as Tennessee's #2 RB if Henry misses more time.

Titans RB Derrick Henry injured his calf in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Chargers. He's questionable to return. We'll update his status when we learn more.

Titans HC Mike Mularkey told The Tennessean that he wants to get RB Derrick Henry "more involved" on offense, though he says it'll depend on game flow. Henry carried a season-high 16 times in last Thursday's dominating win over Jacksonville, when DeMarco Murray spent the 2nd half dealing with a toe injury. Murray was limited Wednesday, but the fact that he's participating -- and played at all in the 2nd half of last week's blowout -- suggests Murray will be healthy enough for a normal workload Sunday. San Diego, however, might present a good matchup for a run-heavy approach. The Chargers lost ILBs Jatavis Brown and Denzel Perryman to injury at Denver last week. They're down to rookie Joshua Perry and Korey Toomer, who began the year on Oakland's practice squad, at the position. Henry presents some deep upside for fantasy owners dealing with the second 6-team bye. He's also a good stash in general and would likely become a weekly starter if Murray went down.

Injury Predictor

Henry has lost just 1 game to injury through 2 pro seasons: Week 9 of his rookie campaign to a calf injury. He fractured his fibula during spring practice as a freshman at Alabama but was ready for the start of that season. Henry played in all 29 games between 2014 and 2015, amassing 567 total carries. He could be in for a work uptick in 2018 after Tennessee let DeMarco Murray walk, but Dion Lewis' arrival assures Henry won't turn into a workhorse.
