Titans’ Mike Mularkey, Derrick Henry Haven’t Talked Since Workouts Began

In what’s becoming an odd story come out of Tennessee, there seems to be some sort of possible rift brewing in the Titans organization or a lack of communication.

In an event something is brewing between the team and running back Derrick Henry.

Henry missed the opening portion of the Titan’s voluntary workouts to attend classes at Alabama. Titans’s head coach Mike Mularkey admitted earlier this week that he has yet to speak with Henry.

“I didn’t reach out to Derrick,” Mularkey said, per The Tennessean. “All the players know our schedule, know what we’re doing daily, and I didn’t feel like I needed to follow up. He’s been informed, as everybody has.”

Mularkey also reminded the media that Henry doesn’t have to report for voluntary workouts.

“He doesn’t have to (report for voluntary workouts). None of them have to. Again, we’ve got a good group going on, working right now. From what I understand, he’s in school, and I don’t think there’s anything negative about that.”

Henry is not projected to be Tennessee’s starting running back after the bounce-back year of DeMarco Murray.

Say what you want about this story, but there is something the be said in the instances that players choose to not attend voluntary workouts, especially 2nd year players.
