According to Fox Sports NFL Insider Jay Glazer, Henry suffered an injury to his fifth metatarsal in his foot. He will undergo foot surgery this week.

Until Henry has the operation and his rehab, it is believed that he could be out 6-to-10 weeks. However, the more logical belief is that Henry could return in two months if the Titans are still in the playoffs.

This is a devastating blow for the Titans’ chances to make the second season.

Henry has been a dominant force for the team over the past several seasons. Before this season, he had two straight seasons, where he rushed for more than 2,000 yards.

“We will have to move on,” Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said, as Henry accounted for 36% of the team’s offense. “Unfortunately, without him, in the short-term, and not look back.”

Jeremy McNichols is the team’s lone running back on the roster. The team had to put Darryton Evans on the IR.

Evans went on injured reserve twice this season. This has ended his season.

The team has running back Mekhi Sargent on the practice squad.

Henry had 219 carries for 937 yards and 10 touchdowns before the injury. He was averaging 117.1 yards per game.
