With the news of Derrick Henry's injury, the Tennessee Titans' front office must make a move (or two) in an attempt to maintain dominance in the AFC. It'll be interesting to see what happens, but this franchise is going to sign a new running back soon. We go over some of the best Titans' free-agent options.

Of course, there's no replacing Derrick Henry. He's a force of nature nobody can duplicate. However, the Titans should be able to bring in a free agent, possibly make a small trade, and give themselves a nice committee in the backfield. It's not an ideal situation, but it's enough for Tennessee to get by.

Three free agents stand out as the best options for the Titans. Whoever they sign will share the backfield with Jeremy McNichols, who has looked decent with his limited opportunities. Whoever they sign will likely be a decent enough option to help this team make a run for the playoffs. With that said, here are the best Titans free agent options with Derrick Henry ruled out.

Titans Free Agent Options

3. Jordan Wilkins 

He's not the most exciting name, but Jordan Wilkins might be the best available running back in free agency. He'll have to clear waivers, so there is a chance the Titans miss out on him. However, Wilkins is a decent running back who could thrive in a committee approach for Tennessee.

Jordan Wilkins has spent his entire career with the Indianapolis Colts. He's played sporadically for the team and many believed he might've had a more prominent role this year. Instead, Jordan Wilkins is available on waivers and would be a great addition to the Titans backfield.

2. Todd Gurley

Todd Gurley's name has been involved in numerous rumors since the offseason. He's worked out with the Baltimore Ravens, but they decided not to bring him on board and signed different options instead. That's not a great sign for Todd Gurley, but with the Titans needing to fill a void, he might be their best option.

The main issue with Gurley is the concern about his overall health. His knees are something to monitor as it's possible Todd Gurley hasn't been able to pass a physical. We'll see what happens, but Gurley must be considered as one of the Titans' free-agent options.

1. Adrian Peterson

It's already been confirmed that Adrian Peterson will be working out for the Titans. At 36-years old, the future hall of fame running back aims to maintain relevance in the NFL. If he signs with the Titans, he'd immediately become a viable option in the backfield, working alongside Jeremy McNichols.

Peterson looked like he had some gas left in the tank during his season with the Detroit Lions last year. He should be a decent option for the Titans and provide the team with somewhat consistent running between the tackles. If he happens to be a good fit, Adrian Peterson will likely sign almost immediately after his workout in Tennessee. If so, it might take him a game or two to get acclimated with the offense, but he should pick things up rather quickly.
