Titans head coach Mike Vrabel and general manager Jon Robinson confirmed Wednesday that Henry and Dion Lewis will split playing time, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. "In my mind, we've got a big running back. We've got a big first- and second-down back," Vrabel said of Henry. "Dion provides a different body type, a different playing style. So how the two will complement each other, I'm not really sure. But I know that one's got a certain skill set and another body type and one is a little smaller, probably a little quicker, and has a different running style."

2018

2017

Plucked in the second round of the 2016 draft, Henry's chances of making an impact as a rookie were dashed when the Titans picked up DeMarco Murray on the cheap from the Eagles, but he still put together a solid first season in the NFL with his limited opportunities. A huge, bruising force of nature out of the backfield at 6-3, 247, Henry doesn't make many people miss and doesn't need to, instead using his size and power to make himself difficult to wrap up and take down. He started to earn the coaching staff's trust at the goal line as the season progressed, scoring three TDs from inside the 5-yard line in the last three games, and he could see his duties there expand in 2017 as the Titans look to keep Murray healthy. As long as the veteran is around, though, Henry's touches and production will be capped.

2016

Henry finally stepped into a featured role as a junior at Alabama, and he was ready for the work. The Tide ran him into the ground through 15 games: a ridiculous 395 carries, good for 2,219 yards and 28 scores. Henry capped his career with a Heisman trophy in December and a National Championship in January. He rolled up 167 yards and three scores in the clincher over Clemson. Henry starts the year as the clear No. 2 back in Tennessee behind veteran DeMarco Murray and Henry's lack of receiving chops (17 career catches) won't get him on the field. His 6-foot-3, 245-pound frame can be seen as a blessing or a curse it enables him to run over defenders and gain yards after initial contact, but it also makes him a big target. Henry could lead Tennessee in rushing touchdowns, and he should be a weapon.
