Darrynton Evans missed 10 games his rookie season with a strained hamstring and while the reports have said knee the video shows "either a hamstring or (less likely) proximal calf” [credit @DrJesseMorse]. Tennessee holds Brian Hill, Jeremy McNichols and Mekhi Sargent behind Henry and Evans, this will be a backfield situation to monitor going forward.

Titans RB Derrick Henry (not injury related) was added to the injury report Thursday after taking limited practice reps.
Since returning from his turf toe injury in Week 6, Phillip Lindsay has averaged 6.92 yards per carry. That figure leads all running backs with at least 15 rushing attempts during that span. And only NFL rushing leader Derrick Henry (eight) has a greater number of explosive runs — defined as at least 12 yards — than Lindsay (seven) during the last three weeks, according to Sportradar.
Overall, Lindsay’s 6.4 yards per scrimmage touch represent the most efficient rate of his career. For context, he averaged 5.6 yards per touch during his Pro Bowl rookie season in 2018, the story pointed out. The author asked the question: Is Lindsay more productive on a per-play basis because he’s best suited for this slightly reduced, change-of-pace role? Or is he succeeding in spite of the lower volume Gordon’s arrival has created?

Titans RB Darrynton Evans (hamstring) was removed from the injury report Friday. He has been placed on injured reserve, so Jeremy McNichols will serve as Derrick Henry's primary back up. McNichols (ribs) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week.
