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.
Per Ben Arthur of The Tennessean, “no lingering concerns” have been “apparent” regarding Derrick Henry’s foot. Henry, of course, missed 9 games last year before returning for the postseason. Arthur also writes that the RB has “showcased his signature burst,” so it certainly seems like he’s the Henry of old. The 28-year-old enters August with a mid-to-late Round 1 ADP.
Titans beat writer Ben Arthur writes that it’s “fair to wonder how dominant” RB Derrick Henry will remain in 2022. Henry, 28, suffered a broken foot around mid-season last year and missed 9 games. He’s back to 100%, but the potential for decline is clear. Tennessee can save $12.5 million against the cap by releasing Henry in 2023. Per Arthur, rookie 4th-round RB Hassan Haskins is the likely successor.
Titans beat writer Ben Arthur writes that rookie RB Hassan Haskins “could eat into some of [Derrick Henry’s] snaps on early downs.” Haskins, a 4th round pick, brings a power back skill set to the pros. Tennessee’s rarely had a dependable #2 alongside Derrick Henry, although D’Onta Foreman turned out to be a pleasant surprise in 2021. He’s now in Carolina, leaving Dontrell Hilliard as Haskins’ main competition. Recall that Henry, 28, underwent foot surgery in early November. He returned for the Divisional Round but wasn't close to 100%. While Henry still projects as a top-8 fantasy RB, the risk here is clear.
