Report: Derrick Henry to miss about 2 weeks with calf injury

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Adam Schefter is reporting that Derrick Henry is expected to be sidelined a couple of week with a strained muscle in his calf:

This is good news on the Henry injury front. Two weeks obviously gives him plenty of time to get ready for week 1, and that is really all that matters at this point. It would be nice for him to get some time with an offensive line that is going to be really new with Rodger Saffold and probably Dennis Kelly on the left side, and whoever is going to be starting at right guard, but they can figure all of that out as the season goes along. It is much more important for Henry to be out there and healthy.

We saw what this running game looked like last year when they were all but phasing Henry out. Dion Lewis is a good guy to have, but he can’t shoulder the load.
