Perhaps the biggest knock on Tennessee Titans star rusher Derrick Henry is his lack of production in the passing game, but the Alabama product hasn’t given up working on that area.
After totaling career-highs in receiving yards (206) and touchdowns (two) through the air in 2019, Henry’s already meager passing-game production took a step back in 2020, as he finished with just 114 yards despite career-highs in targets (31) and receptions (19).
Thankfully, the former Heisman Trophy winner puts up ridiculous yardage on the ground to make up for his lackluster receiving production, so it isn’t something that’s a huge problem in Nashville.
Regardless, Henry continues to work on his pass-catching skills, as evidenced by this recent workout video posted to social media.

Looking ahead to 2021, Henry might get even less work as a receiver.
That’s because 2020 third-round pick and fellow running back, Darrynton Evans, figures to have an increased role as long as he can stay healthy, cutting into Henry’s limited target share.
