As expected, Derrick Henry activated and will play Saturday

To the surprise of no one, the Tennessee Titans made official what was expected, activating running back Derrick Henry from the injured reserve.

Henry, who broke the fifth metatarsal bone in his right foot on Oct. 31 at Indianapolis, had surgery a few days later and has not played yet. The Titans designated him for return during the final week of the regular season, opening a 21-day window for his return to action.

Despite playing just eight games, Henry still finished ninth in the NFL with 937 yards rushing this season.

The only question remaining now for Henry is now much of a workload he will have in his return to the lineup for the Titans’ AFC Divisional Round Playoff Game against Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday at Nissan Stadium.

During the time Henry was out, the Titans split carries mainly between D’Onta Foreman and Dontrell Hilliard, both of whom are still likely to see action on Saturday.
