Titans RB Derrick Henry (hamstring, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 15. Henry says that he's going to play but his practice activity was scaled back from last week. Dion Lewis would be an emergency pickup-and-start if Henry is unable to play. Since 2015, he has averaged 85 total yards and 0.45 TD on 17.6 touches in the 22 games where he saw at least 10 carries.
“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.

Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) missed practice again Friday. As it stands, if he’s out, the Patriots would turn to some combination of James White, Kenjon Barner and practice squad player Kenneth Farrow against the Bills. Farrow is significantly bigger than Barner, who is cut from the same cloth as White. The Patriots could use Farrow as their “big back” against Buffalo, though New England used the smallish Dion Lewis as their primary back for most of last season. White is a top six play this week in all formats if Michel is out.

Titans RB Derrick Henry (back) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Henry will play against the Jaguars but it’s a terrible matchup and he’s splitting time with Dion Lewis.
