NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — The Tennessee Titans officially designated star running back Derrick Henry to return to practice from injured reserve Wednesday.
This designation opens up a 21-day window for Henry to practice with the team, and he will not count against the team’s 53-man roster until being activated from injured reserve, according to a release.
