Dianna Russini Talks About Derrick Henry With Dianna Russini

Following Derrick Henry’s foot surgery earlier this year, the Tennessee Titans assumed they would be without him for the remainder of the 2021 season.

According to a recent report, this may not be the case.

There’s growing “optimism” in Tennessee, according to ESPN’s Dianna Russini, that Henry will return in January 2022.

Last year’s Offensive Player of the Year would be able to rejoin the 8-2 Titans just in time for a Super Bowl push.

“I was just in Nashville talking to some people on the team, talking to some people connected to the organization, trying to get a sense of what’s going on with Derrick Henry… There is optimism that [Derrick Henry] will be back early January,” Russini said on Thursday’s Get Up.

“The start of the playoffs is ideal for this team.

So, if you’re not yet impressed, don’t count the Tennessee Titans.”

Given that many had written Henry off for the season, Russini’s report is quite the surprise.

After suffering a Jones fracture in his foot, the 27-year-old running back had to undergo foot surgery that would take a long time to heal.

He was placed on injured reserve by the Titans, and his fate for the 2021 season seemed to be sealed.

Henry’s return would undoubtedly alter Tennessee’s playoff prospects.

The two-time Pro Bowler had 219 carries for 937 yards and 10 touchdowns this season, averaging 117 yards per game, all of which led the NFL.

In each of the last two seasons, Henry has won the rushing title, and in 2020, he broke the 2,000-yard barrier.

On his way to winning Offensive Player of the Year, he scored 17 times.

The Titans’ rushing attack, and offense as a whole, hasn’t been the same since Henry’s injury.

Tennessee, on the other hand, has maintained a three-game lead over the rest of the South division and continues to lead the AFC standings.

The Titans should be considered a legitimate contender to win Super Bowl LVI next February if Henry can make an unlikely comeback.
