“You look at these couple of games, [Derrick Henry's] definitely earned more carries,” Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur said ahead of their game against the Texans on Monday Night Football in Houston. “There’s no doubt about it.”

The story said during the first six games of the season, Henry had 72 carries for 240 yards, or just 3.3 yards per carry, and no touchdowns. Over the Titans last four games, though, Henry is averaging 4.3 yards per carry with four rushing touchdowns. But Henry only has 38 carries over the past four games as Lewis, who has run the ball 62 times, has taken on a featured role. This could turn into more of a split if the team really is looking to get Henry more involved.
