Aaron Suttles on Why Derrick Henry Missed the Titans’ First Workout
Offseason programs are beginning around the NFL, and one noticeable absence has stirred up curiosity and criticism.
Former Crimson Tide running back Derrick Henry missed the first voluntary workout for the Tennessee Titans and a story by ESPN created some ill will towards the former Heisman Trophy winner. It turns out that the second-year player had returned to Tuscaloosa to take classes towards earning his degree from The University of Alabama.
That message must not have been communicated to some of the personnel in Nashville, but it appears the story has been blown a bit out of proportion. Aaron Suttles addressed the topic during his show on Tuesday, which you can hear in the video above.
It turns out another teammate of Henry's is back in Tuscaloosa as well to train and attend class. Packers' safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix posted this video to his Instagram account, maybe to proactively head off any questions while Green Bay was holding its first workout.
