Derrick Henry working toward bounce-back season after injury in 2021

Derrick Henry celebrates big win for Titans in 2020

We can always count on one thing in the NFL offseason: intense workouts from Derrick Henry.

His workout this summer is done with a different purpose. He is coming off his sixth season with the Tennessee Titans and the first since 2017 (744) that he did not total 1,000+ yards rushing. Henry suffered a foot injury in 2021 and missed nine games.

Before sustaining the mishap versus the Indianapolis Colts, he had 219 carries for 937 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Henry ranked in the top-10 for running backs in carries (No. 10), rushing yards (No. 9), and touchdowns (tied for No. 6).

He posted five 100-yard outings, including two 150+ yard rushing performances. The 6-foot-3, 247-pounder is a three-time 1,000+ yard back, NFL Offensive Player of the Year (2020), first-team All-Pro (2020), two-time Pro Bowl selection (2019, 2020), and two-time league rushing champion (2019, 2020). Henry has been working on turning in a bounce-back season for the NFL.

His trainer has released a few videos to social media of Henry putting in work.

Alabama fans are ready to see the 2015 Heisman Trophy winner pound the opposition in the fall.
