Backfield gets more crowded

Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports that the Titans have activated Derrick Henry (foot) from injured reserve ahead of Saturday's game against the Bengals, adding more competition for touches in a Titans backfield that already includes Hilliard and D'Onta Foreman.

Henry's return is likely to torpedo Foreman's fantasy value, but Hilliard may not see his touches impacted as much. Prior to getting hurt in Week 8, Henry had a near monopoly on early-down touches but Jeremy McNichols played in passing situations. Hilliard has slid into McNichols' role recently, pushing McNichols down to the practice squad. Look for Hilliard to continue to play on third downs and in the two-minute drill in the divisional round.
