There’s a chance the Tennessee Titans could have All-Pro running back Derrick Henry along for their playoff run.
Head coach Mike Vrabel said Henry will do some work Monday and the team will consider whether to activate his window to return from injured reserve.
“We’ve discussed it. We’ll see where it goes,” Vrabel told reporters. “We’ll probably make a decision mid-week.”
Also Monday, All-Pro wide receiver Julio Jones was one of three Titans activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list. Linebacker Jayon Brown and offensive tackle Kendall Lamm were also activated off the list.
Jones has just 26 catches for 376 yards on the season. Brown has 55 tackles in 10 games (six starts). Lamm has started once this season in 12 appearances in his first season with the Titans.
Henry, who turns 28 on Tuesday, had surgery to repair a broken bone in his left foot on Nov. 2.
The two-time NFL rushing champion was leading the league with 937 rushing yards and 10 rushing touchdowns at the time of his injury in Week 8.
Tennessee (11-5) currently holds the No. 1 seed in the AFC. The Titans can clinch a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs with a victory Sunday at the Houston Texans (4-12).
The Titans also put tight end MyCole Pruitt on injured reserve, ending his season. Pruitt had 14 catches for 145 yards and three TDs on the season. He sustained a gruesome ankle injury in Sunday’s win over Miami and was scheduled for surgery Monday.
