The Tennessee Titans haven’t had to worry about the running back position for years now with the emergence of superstar rusher, Derrick Henry, but that all changed on Monday morning.
According to multiple reports, Henry has suffered a broken bone in his foot that will require surgery. The injury could could keep him out as little as eight weeks, or for as long as the rest of the season.
There is obviously no replacing a generational talent like Henry, who is the heart and soul of Tennessee’s offense. However, the Titans have to do their best to fill an unfillable void, which will require a significant move.
One possibility already being floated around is Adrian Peterson, who the Titans will reportedly work out. However, Peterson is 36 and it isn’t clear how much he has left in the tank, thus the Titans should explore more options.
With the NFL trade deadline coming up on Tuesday, Nov. 2 at 3 p.m. CT, here’s a look at some players the Titans could trade for. We’ll also list off-backs like Peterson who are available in free agency.
