Derrick Henry is an outstanding running back and the key figure for the Colts’ defensive line. He is one of the ten players to rush for 2,000 yards in a single reason in the whole NFL history; before the Sunday’s matchup against Indianapolis Colts he had only missed one game and has never been suspended due to traumas.
At the moment, there is a high risk that Colts will have to urgently find a decent substitution, as the injury Henry got yesterday may prevent him from training sessions and games for up to ten weeks. According to experts’ opinion, if Henry misses out the season, Titan’s chances to win the AFC drop to 5,9% from their current 17,7%.
Today, Henry is undergoing an MRI that will show how serious the issue is; the X-rays have already proved he had his foot bone broken, so the MRI will determine approximate rehabilitation period time and help to figure out the extent of the damage and future prognoses on his ability to play this season. Although the team hopes for the best, they can not sweep aside a high probability of Henry’s suspension until almost the end of the season.
