Shark Bites

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Titans RB Derrick Henry (hamstring) is not expected to play against the Saints today. He's been dealing with a bum hamstring for the past few weeks and was downgraded to questionable on Saturday. His absence leaves Tennessee with RBs Dion Lewis, undrafted rookie Khari Blasingame and practice-squad call-up Dalyn Dawkins. 29-year-old Lewis has struggled to just 3.5 yards per carry and 6.0 yards per catch in limited action this year. We're not expecting great efficiency today against a solid Saints defense, but Lewis should be in line for 15+ touches. That at least makes him a RB3 or flex option.

The Titans are still hoping to get RB Derrick Henry (foot) back this season, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports, but it might be unlikely. It "would be very surprising if he made it back this season," a source told Schefter. The injury Henry suffered -- a Jones Fracture -- is notoriously difficult to return from. We'll continue to monitor his rehab, but Henry is only worth stashing in deeper fantasy leagues, with the hope that he'd be back for the final game or 2 of the season.

Titans RB Derrick Henry will undergo foot surgery on Tuesday morning, HC Mike Vrabel said. Vrabel gave no timeline for Henry's return or any other details. Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reports that Henry broke the 5th metatarsal in his foot, commonly referred to as a Jones Fracture. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, meanwhile, reports that Henry is expected to miss 6-10 weeks. "Six would be quite fast, eight is more likely," Rapoport says. That 8-week mark would have Henry back for Week 17 -- or championship week in most fantasy leagues. You can hang on to Henry if you have an IR spot or a very deep bench. But he's also cuttable if you need to free up a roster spot.

Titans RB Derrick Henry suffered a "potentially" season-ending foot injury in yesterday's win over the Colts, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. "Henry is undergoing an MRI today to determine the full extent of the damage," Schefter adds. We'll update Henry's status as soon as we know more, but this injury obviously has major fantasy implications. Tennessee only has RBs Jeremy McNichols and Dontrell Hilliard behind Henry on the depth chart right now. RB Mekhi Sargent is on the practice squad. None of those guys are fit to handle anywhere close to Henry's volume. The Titans could add a RB before Tuesday's trade deadline. But we'll likely see them shift significantly toward the pass for as long as Henry is sidelined. It's good news for QB Ryan Tannehill and WR A.J. Brown.

The Titans and Patriots' latest COVID tests came back with no positives on Friday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. So Tennessee's game vs. the Bills on Tuesday and New England's vs. the Broncos on Monday are still on track to be played. That could still change with positive tests over the next couple of days. Stay tuned.

The NFL announced on Thursday morning that the Steelers-Titans game will not be played this week after a 5th Titans player tested positive for COVID. We're still waiting to hear when the game will be played, but Week 4 now acts as a bye week for Steelers and Titans players. Get them out of your starting lineups.
