Titans’ Henry suspended

September 27, 2005


— The Tennessee Titans lost their insurance policy for oft-injured Chris Brown when the NFL suspended running back Travis Henry for four weeks Monday for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

At least the suspension without pay, which began immediately, gives the Titans salary cap relief to find a replacement.

Coach Jeff Fisher said the Titans likely would make a roster move because the suspension leaves them with only Brown, rookie Damien Nash - a fifth-round draft pick out of Missouri deactivated for the first three games - and fullback Troy Fleming on the roster.

The NFL informed the Titans of the suspension Monday, a day after CBS reported Henry would be disciplined in its pregame show. Fisher declined to comment after a 31-27 loss in St. Louis. Henry called it a league issue and said, "No comment."

"Travis is extremely regretful for his actions, for his choices, for his decisions. It has affected him personally, his family and obviously has hurt this football team," Fisher said.
