The Tennessee Titans are 6-2 and firmly entrenched atop the AFC South, as the Colts are a distant second place with a 3-5 overall record. However, Tennessee may need to sort out the remainder of the year without its star running back:
Titans’ RB Derrick Henry suffered a potentially season-ending foot injury during Sunday’s 34-31 win over Indianapolis, sources reported ESPN. Henry is undergoing an MRI today to determine the full extent of the damage.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 1, 2021
We don’t have official word yet, but Tennessee bringing in 36-year-old Adrian Peterson for a workout and the ominous tone of this is pretty unsettling. Peterson ran for 604 yards and seven scores last year, averaging 3.9 Y/A for a woeful Detroit Lions team. He would at least carry flex value if he landed in Tennessee.
There’s no replacing a player of Henry’s talents...but what’s your backup plan, gamers?
