Titans RB Derrick Henry (broken foot) could be done for season

NFL leading rusher Derrick Henry broke the fifth metatarsal in his foot and will undergo an MRI exam to determine whether the Tennessee Titans must move forward without him this season, per multiple reports.

FOX Sports reported Henry would have tests Monday that will determine whether surgery is needed or recovery is possible without an operation. If he requires surgery, Henry would likely miss 8-12 weeks.

“We’ll see where he’s at and evaluate,” Titans coach Mike Vrabel said Sunday, when the team didn’t make Henry available postgame due to treatment.

Non-surgical healing in a protective boot is possible depending on the displacement of the broken bone.

Henry leads the NFL in carries (219), rushing yards (937) and rushing touchdowns (10).

He injured his foot in the first quarter at Indianapolis and attempted to play through the pain, finishing the game with 29 carries for 68 yards.

Henry had 139 carries in the team’s five games in October, an excessive workload by comparison in the pass-heavy NFL.

The Titans have won four consecutive games. Tennessee outlasted the Colts in overtime to improve to 6-2 and lead the AFC South division entering Week 9. Tennessee plays at Los Angeles and the 7-1 Rams this week.
