Derrick Henry

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - The Tennessee Titans on Wednesday moved running back Derrick Henry to the team's "Designated for Return from Injured Reserve" list.

The move clears Henry's return to practice. However, Henry will not count against the team's 53-man roster until being activated from IR.

"It's exciting to get him back out there," Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill said. "Obviously, he's put in a lot of work to get to this point. It's been a while. So no doubt it's exciting to get him back out there and will see what he can do." 

Henry went down with an injury in the October 31 game vs the Colts. He's missed the last eight games.

So far this year, Henry has rushed for 937 yards and 10 rushing touchdowns on 219 attempts. He also has18 receptions for 154 yards to give him 1,091 scrimmage yards.

Titans coach Mike Vrabel talked to the media on Wednesday before practice. He discussed Henry's return to the field. 

"Just to see how he responds and ask him to start doing some of those things that he's going to need to do in the football game," Vrabel said. "No different than what we have done with any other guy that's come back from the injured reserve and as they start to return to play."
