Titans running back Derrick Henry has been training with the team since week 18. And he is at least impressed his teammates with his training performance.
But the star race did not quite commit to playing against the Bengals on Saturday when asked about his availability at a Wednesday press conference.
"We will see how is this week", Henry said via Ben Arthur from Tennessean.
Henry has not played since suffering a foot injury that required surgery back in the Titans' Week Eight victory over the Colts in October. The running back still finished No. 9 in rushing with 937 yards.
Henry told reporters he was fine and still had a steel plate in his foot, but declined to talk about any potential workload.
"You definitely appreciate this game a lot more when you're away from it, being with your teammates, just having that camaraderie and going to work every day and going out and playing on Sundays every single week - you have it definitely missed, "Henry said via Jim Wyatt from the team's website. "I'm just happy to be back. Thank you to everyone who helped me come back and contribute during the playoffs. And I'm just happy for that. back to playing football. "
The Titans still need to activate Henry from the injured reserve to the 53-man roster. But they appear to be doing so before Saturday's game against the Bengals.
