Running back Derrick Henry propels Titans to victory in final preseason game

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (No. 2) scores TD vs. Miami Dolphins in preseason finale: Steve Mitchell - USA TODAY Sports

The second round pick ends preseason action on a 6.7 yards per carry average.

Running back Derrick Henry continues to make Titan fans happy about its selection. He recorded 62 of Tennessee’s 128 rushing yards in Thursday’s 21-10 win over the Miami Dolphins. The latest member to Nissan’s “Heisman House” had a monster run of 26 yards, while notching his third touchdown in four weeks. Henry reached the end zone from a yard out in the first quarter.

Coach Mike Mularkey and the Titans will open the regular season at home against Minnesota on Sept. 11. Henry’s 216 yards and three scores on 34 tries guided the unit to a 3-1 preseason mark.
