Derrick Henry shares great reason for not wanting fifth TD, letting Dion Lewis run instead

Titans running back Derrick Henry turned in one of the best performances we’ve ever seen from a player at his position in Thursday’s 30-9 win over the Jaguars.

Henry carried the ball 17 times for 238 yards, with four touchdowns as well. Speaking of those, Henry had a chance to record a franchise-record fifth one late in the fourth quarter, but he actually told head coach Mike Vrabel he didn’t want to go in, and wanted Dion Lewis to get the red-zone carries instead.

He shared exactly why he said that with reporters after the game.

That was an awesome gesture by Henry. And to his credit, he did break Chris Johnson’s franchise record for rushing yards on the night.
