Titans RB Derrick Henry practiced on Monday for the 1st time since suffering a calf injury on the 1st day of training camp back in late July. He ended up missing about 3 weeks of work but still has almost 3 weeks to get ready for the season opener. Barring a setback, the calf shouldn't be an issue. Henry's ADP is sitting in the mid-4th round of 12-team PPR drafts.

Titans RB Derrick Henry is expected to be sidelined "about 2 weeks" with a strained calf, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. "The injury is not considered serious and the team is being cautious," Schefter adds. So Henry isn't in any danger of missing the start of the season, barring a setback. We're not adjusting Henry's projections right now but will continue to monitor his status.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Titans RB Derrick Henry's lower-leg injury is "not a big deal." We don't have any more details on the ailment at this point, and HC Mike Vrabel declined to give a timetable for Henry's return on Sunday. But Rapoport adds that "the team is not worried about it." We'll see when Henry is able to get back on the field, but we're not moving him in the RB rankings right now.

Titans RB Derrick Henry was seen with his left foot in a walking boot after getting injured in Friday’s practice. That news comes from team insider Terry McCormick. No word on the exact injury Henry suffered, but it doesn’t appear serious as HC Mike Vrabel called the 25-year-old “day to day.” We’ll see when Henry returns to practice.

Titans OC Arthur Smith plans to "ride" RB Derrick Henry this season, Jim Wyatt of the team's official website writes. That's what we're expecting. We currently project Henry for 263 carries -- 4th most among all RBs. The question is whether his role in the passing game will expand. Henry totaled just 18 catches and 15 targets last year. And even during that huge 4-game stretch to close last season, he saw just 3 targets. It'll be tough for Henry to break into RB1 territory without more receiving production. The good news is that his ADP is still sitting in RB2 territory in the 4th round.

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.
