Derrick Henry has taken another significant step towards returning to the Tennessee Titans for their playoff game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday.

The Titans held a padded practice Tuesday and had some of the defensive players bang into Henry as he went through drills during the individual period of practice with the running backs.

"I felt great," Henry said. "I just wanted to get some pads on. Haven't them on in a while and got some contact going."

Henry was placed on injured reserve Nov. 1 because of a fractured foot he suffered in the team's 34-31 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 8.
