The Tennessee Titans are fresh off a blowout win against the Miami Dolphins in Week 17. Now, they seem to be getting another win. This time, it is for the team’s outlook for the playoffs. Derrick Henry could be back as soon as this week.
#Titans‘ Vrabel: Have discussed opening practice window for Derrick Henry. Will make a decision mid-week.

Henry has been out since Halloween with a foot injury, but his recovery has gone about as the Titans could have hoped – it seems. From all reports throughout the process, Henry has stayed on track for a return around this time.
It will be intriguing to see if the Titans do activate him for this week. They could play it safe and wait for the postseason, but they also could look to knock some rust off this week as well as try their best to grab the one-seed in the AFC.

We will find out in the coming days what the Titans decide to do with their star running back. Both sides of the coin make sense, but they need to be as careful as possible. A healthy, fully-charged Derrick Henry morphs the team into even more of a contender in the AFC and for the Super Bowl.
