Peterson now joins a 6-2 Titans squad that leads the AFC South by three games and is atop the AFC rankings. When he comes up to speed on the scheme, Peterson has a chance to carve himself a position as the Titans’ early-down ball carrier. While Peterson is no longer an All-Pro, he shown last season that he can still grind out yards between the tackles with the rare explosion.
Jeremy McNichols, the Titans’ No. 2 running back, has mostly been used as a pass-catcher this season, with just seven carries for 38 yards. Tennessee will most likely use a committee system to help replace the void created by Henry’s injury.
