2008 GP/GS: 1/0 (Playoffs 0/0) • Career GP/GS: 8/0 (Playoffs 1/0) • Stockton, Calif.

As a rookie, he saw action in seven games and carried the ball 31 times for 119 yards and two touchdowns. Henry also collected six receptions for 53 yards and returned 13 kickoffs for 272 yards. In 2007 pre-draft workouts, the sculpted 230-pound back tied for the fastest time (4.40) in the 40-yard dash among running backs with Vikings first round pick Adrian Peterson at the NFL Combine and recorded a 36-inch vertical jump. He was selected by the Titans in the second round (50th overall) in the 2007 NFL Draft.
