Report: Titans’ Derrick Henry not worried about his leg injury
The Tennessee Titans are in the midst of their training camp, but unfortunately for them they’re now without a key factor in their offense. Running back Derrick Henry has been sidelined early during camp with what is being described as a lower leg injury. Thankfully for him, however, the team doesn’t seem to think it’s much to worry about.
Should not be a big deal. The team is not worried about it. https://t.co/tBtFzm2QSC

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the team doesn’t believe that Henry’s injury is a “big deal,” and even though the running back has no timetable for his return, Rapoport reports the team isn’t concerned.
“No one seems worried at all about the status of Derrick Henry despite the fact that he hasn’t been out there the last couple days,” Rapoport said on Inside Training Camp Live over the weekend. “This (injury) is described to me as minor and should not be something that either, one, is long term at all or, two, something that keeps him out for a long time.”
Titans head coach Mike Vrabel didn’t get into the specifics of how Henry was injured, but the running back was seen in a walking boot during the team’s workouts on Friday. Since then, he hasn’t been at practice, likely rehabbing the injury in an effort to make his way back to the field.
After posting career-highs in rushing yards (1,059), yards per carry (4.9), and touchdowns (12) last year, Henry is looking to continue improving into one of the league’s best rushing threats. The young back is looking to head into 2019 completely healthy, and the Titans will no doubt be leaning on him to help take the team into the playoffs.
