Week 2 of the preseason was an entirely different story. Saturday afternoon, Tennessee ran for only 96 yards, and RB Derrick Henry’s five rushes amounted to 31 yards.
“I still think he ran the ball with some power,” coach Mike Mularkey said. “I saw piles moving.”
“I thought they were a real test,” Henry said.
Henry’s longest run of the game was a 13-yard play up the middle on a first-and-5 at the start of the third quarter. He remains an interesting fantasy option behind DeMarco Murray, who struggled last year after a 392-carry year in 2014.
