Update, Sept. 29 — Henry is off the injury report heading into the weekend. He should be good to go for Sunday’s game against the Bengals.
Update, Sept. 29 — Henry is back at practice on Friday. It seems that the absence on Thursday may have just been to give the veteran some extra rest. We will know if he is listed as questionable or possibly comes off the injury report when it is released later on Friday afternoon.

-No sign of Treylon Burks (knee), Elijah Molden, Luke Gifford (hamstring), Peter Skoronski (abdomen) during open period of practice.
-DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) and Derrick Henry (toe) returned after missing yesterday.
The Tennessee Titans will host the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 4 of the NFL season. Tennessee has a full injury report on Thursday, with several players not practicing. It could be more rest as they gear up to take on the Bengals this weekend, but seeing players added on Thursday is usually a bad sign. We will get more information once the team drops the injury report later, but for now, veteran RB Derrick Henry was added to the report Thursday and isn’t practicing.

Fantasy football implications for Week 4
Henry has 51 carries for 163 yards and a touchdown. He has brought in five of his seven targets for 71 yards. The veteran running back hasn’t gotten a chance to shine this season because the Titans’ offense has struggled. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill isn’t playing well, and the offensive line can’t keep him upright or open holes for the running back.
If Henry is active, you will start him and hope for the best. He is too talented a player to leave on your bench. If he misses the game, Tyjae Spears would likely be the next in line for carries. He could be a flex play in 12-team leagues or larger, but otherwise would sit on the bench.
