Former Crimson Tide running back Derrick Henry, or "King Henry" as he's colloquially known, dealt with the first major injury of his NFL career in 2021, suffering a Jones Fracture in a Week 8 matchup against the Colts.

Henry, despite missing the remainder of the regular season, managed to return for the Titans' divisional round matchup with the Bengals, but was clearly not a fully healthy version of himself.

The Yulee, FL native rushed for just 62 yards and a score on 20 carries in a Tennessee loss.

Now, with a full offseason of rehab under his belt, Henry looks to retake his throne as the NFL's top running back.

Henry was the 45th overall selection in the 2016 NFL Draft, and since taking over as the Titans' full-time starter in 2018, the former Heisman winner has rushed for over 1,000 yards three times, including the NFL's most recent 2,000 yard season since Adrian Peterson in 2012.

A five-star recruit in 2013, Henry chose Alabama over a plethora of other schools, joining a running back room that featured the likes of T.J Yeldon, Kenyan Drake and fellow freshman Alvin Kamara.

In his first season, Henry saw time in 12 games, rushing for nearly 400 yards on just 35 carries. As a sophomore, the big-bodied back took on a much larger role, finishing the year with 990 yards on 172 rushes.

Henry's junior season; however, was when he would cement himself in Alabama record books for years to come. The third-year back rushed the ball 395 times for 2,219 yards and 28 touchdowns, winning the Heisman Trophy and guiding Alabama to a national title.

While many expect Henry to possibly see the first real regression of his career this season, that will simply have to be seen to be believed. Up to this point, "El Tractorcito" has shown zero signs of slowing down.
