Henry suspended four games for substance abuse

Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee Titans running back Travis Henry was suspended for four games by the NFL on Monday for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Henry's suspension begins immediately, which means he will miss Sunday's game with AFC South rival Indianapolis. He won't be back until Oct. 24 before the game with Oakland.

CBS reported Sunday on its pregame show that Henry would be disciplined. That was news to the Titans, and coach Jeff Fisher declined to comment after a 31-27 loss in St. Louis. Henry called it a league issue and said, "No comment."

Henry's agent, Hadley Engelhard, did not respond to phone messages left Sunday and Monday.

The Titans swapped a third-round pick to the Buffalo Bills for Henry in July, just before training camp. They wanted the four-year veteran as an insurance policy for Chris Brown, who has had problems staying healthy during his first two seasons.

Henry, who played for Tennessee in college, was a second-round pick in 2001 by Buffalo, where he started 48 of 53 games in four seasons with the Bills, and rushed for 3,849 yards with a 4.0-yard average and 67 touchdowns. He demanded a trade after Willis McGahee took over as starter. Henry sat out the last five games in 2004 after tearing ligaments in his right ankle.

Henry missed most of the preseason after hurting his left toe. He has 31 carries for 97 yards this season.
