Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has been running all over defenses this season, but on Sunday, the two-time pro-bowler showed he can play quarterback as well.

Henry celebrated National Tight Ends Day by connecting with tight end MyCole Pruitt for a 5-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter to give the Titans an early 7-0 lead against the Kansas City Chiefs. 

The touchdown pass is the second of Henry’s career. In 2019, he threw one to former Titans wide receiver Corey Davis in the 2019 AFC Divisional Round game against the Baltimore Ravens.
