Monday update: Adam Schefter is reporting this could be a season-ending injury, or at least one that keeps him out until the playoffs.

1:41 p.m. update- Tennessee fans can breathe a sigh of relief as Henry has re-entered Sunday’s contest. The Titans certainly could not have afforded to lose their top weapon in a pivotal divisional showdown.

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has exited Sunday’s matchup against the Indianapolis Colts with an apparent lower leg injury. He was spotted on the sidelines with his right cleat off and is being evaluated by trainers.

Of course losing the NFL rushing leader would not be a good thing for the Titans, who are currently trailing their AFC South rival 14-0 late in the first quarter. The juggernaut running back only had two carries for four yards before exiting the game.

Henry’s game-breaking abilities is unmatched by any other running back in the NFL and he’s truly the workhorse for the Tennessee offense. Entering Sunday, he had 191 carries for 869 yards and 10 touchdowns.
