Week 17 vs. Dallas Cowboys
Derrick Henry's status for Thursday night's game against the Cowboys is up in the air due to his hip issue after Henry was listed as a non-participant in practice on Monday. Henry did appear to get some limited reps in practice on Tuesday, and told reporters afterward that he would be ready to play. We likely won't have any clarity on Henry's status until Wednesday's injury report at the earliest, and it's possible this ends up as a dreaded "game-time decision" situation for a Thursday night game. If he suits up, Henry is, as usual, a clear RB1 despite a difficult Week 17 matchup coming off a game where he logged 126 rushing yards and a touchdown on 23 carries against the Texans. If he doesn't suit up for Thursday, it appears that Hassan Haskins and Julius Chestnut will absorb his workload in the backfield. Henry is a surefire starter regardless of matchup when healthy, but fantasy managers could have to monitor the latest news out of Tennessee's camp all the way up until inactives are announced Thursday evening.
