Tennessee Titans star Derrick Henry had a devastating regular season, suffering a foot injury in Week 8 that he has yet to return from. Fortunately for Henry and the Titans, he appears to be on the verge of playing once again.
Henry’s status for this weekend’s Divisional matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals hasn’t been confirmed just yet, but signs are pointing toward a return. If that’s the case, the Titans will have arguably the best running back in the NFL at their disposal.
If Henry does play, he’ll likely be limited in terms of total carries and snaps. Even still, anything is better than nothing.
Let’s take a look at our favorite Derrick Henry props for this weekend’s showdown.

With Henry back on the field, it’s not a stretch to think that he’ll score the first touchdown of the game. Tennessee’s defense is good enough to hold the Bengals to a field goal if they get the ball first, and with Henry taking snaps, the Titans could certainly get in scoring position on their first drive.
If Tennessee can get in the red zone, Henry will almost certainly get his chance. He’s been unstoppable in short-yardage situations throughout his career, and there’s no doubt that he’d be able to punch one in.
