Titans Henry was ready to plug and play

(TSX / STATS) -- NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans drafted Derrick Henry in the second round of the NFL draft last year, knowing that he needed to wait his turn behind DeMarco Murray.

The primary reason for drafting Henry was that because the Titans are a run-oriented team and if something happened to Murray, there would be a plug-and-play replacement ready to insert into the backfield.

That became necessary Sunday in Jacksonville as Henry came off the bench to rush for 92 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries in a 37-16 Titans win. Murray tweaked the hamstring that kept him out of most of training camp and preseason.
