Apparently Derrick Henry’s injury will keep him out a little while.

So it appears the Titans are worried that Derrick Henry’s calf injury is going to keep him out for a while. Tonight the promoted David Fluellen to the active roster and waived CB Cody Riggs:

Mike Mularkey said today that Henry could be out up to 2 weeks. This move leads me to believe that they are worried it will take the full time.

The Titans better hope that DeMarco Murray is able to stay healthy for a couple of weeks because the combination of Antonio Andrews and Fluellen isn’t exactly going to strike fear into the hearts of opposing defenses.

As for Riggs, I bet the Titans try to add him to the practice squad. It is clear they like what they see in him, but they don’t think he is ready to be on the field just yet. That concerns me a little bit considering how bad their corners are, but part of it is probably him just being a young guy with the other guys being veterans.
