News: 2 days agoTitans head coach Mike Vrabel said Monday that Henry is not in concussion protocol, John Glennon of NashvillePost.com reports.
Spin: Henry didn't return to Sunday's 31-28 overtime loss to the Colts after exiting in the fourth quarter to be checked for a concussion, and Adam Schefter of ESPN reported after the game concluded that the running back was following the protocol. A day later, however, Vrabel said that Henry won't be subject to the protocol ahead of the Titans' Week 14 game against the Dolphins in Miami, with the coach noting that the three-time Pro Bowler felt fine after going through a workout Monday and hasn't been exhibiting any symptoms of a concussion. Assuming Henry doesn't experience any setbacks within the next few days, he should be ready to return to the field as a full participant when the Titans resume practicing Thursday. Before departing the loss to Indianapolis, Henry turned in a quality outing for fantasy managers, carrying 21 times for 102 yards and two touchdowns while adding an 18-yard reception on two targets.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Henry is back for his eighth season in Tennessee following another huge showing in 2022. The big man led the NFL in carries for the third time in four seasons and showed he was still at the top of his game, averaging 2.54 yards after contact (third highest). Henry expanded his game a bit as well, setting career-high marks in targets, receptions and receiving yards, while pacing all backs in yards per reception and yards per target. Henry is entering his age-29 season, but he's been a top-four fantasy back on a per-game basis each of the past four seasons and he's shown no signs of slowing down. Especially with the expanded passing-game role, Henry is secure as a midrange RB1.
