Derrick Henry really made his mark when the Titans scrimmage started. He was one of the offense’s biggest stars on Monday night, displaying the same bruising running style and nifty moves he did while leading Alabama to another national championship.
Henry got plenty of work last night behind running back DeMarco Murray.
“He’s a stud. He’s a stud,’’ Titans linebacker Brian Orakpo said of Henry. “He’s definitely going to continue to get better. He has a few things to work on as far as keeping his pads down low when he gets down to the goal-line and things like that, but overall the guy is going to be a stud in this league."
Murray is no sure thing fantasy-wise after the Titans traded for him from the Eagles after an unimpressive year in 2015. Murray was coming off a 392-carry season in 2014 with the Cowboys and some speculated he may not be the same after that large of a workload. Chip Kelly's system didn't really fit Murray's running style and that's what the Titans are banking on in 2016. However, Henry is next in line if Murray does show signs of slowing down.
