Derrick Henry has been incredible for the Titans in 2021

Given Derrick Henry’s importance to the Titans offense, a serious injury might be curtains for their Super Bowl dreams. In 2021, the RB has tallied an insane 937 running yards on 219 runs with 10 touchdowns. His numbers are twice the next best record, which is Nick Chubb with 584 yards.

Henry, who has 3,567 running yards and 33 rushing touchdowns in 31 games over the previous two years, has won the last two NFL rushing titles. Moreover, he also compiled an astonishing 2,027 rushing yards last season to rank seventh in all-time rankings. Missing out on a player like Henry who loves breaking records for fun will be a big blow for the Titans.
