Video: Derrick Henry Scores His First NFL Touchdown

Derrick Henry had quite a NFL debut last night - even if it was just the preseason.

Entering the game in the second quarter of Saturday's game against the San Diego Chargers at Nissan Stadium, Derrick Henry had a pretty immediate impact on the game. The Tennessee Titans' rookie running back rushed 10 times for 74 yards in the quarter, contributing significantly to the Titans' 27-10 victory.

Among his carries was a 6-yard touchdown run.

Watch the video below:

Henry took over as Alabama's starting running back as a junior in 2015. Playing in all 15 games, he rushed for SEC records 2,219 yards and 28 touchdowns on 395 carries. Henry won the Heisman Trophy, in addition numerous other awards including the Doak Walker Award, Walter Camp Award, and Maxwell Award. 

Henry was drafted in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He was the 45th overall selection.

The Titans next host the Carolina Panthers at 2 p.m. Aug. 20.
