NASHVILLE, Tenn. – While Derrick Henry was the last line of defense on a couple plays early in the Titans’ loss at Pittsburgh, he wasn’t guilty of missed assignments that created the pressures.

“That’s not pass protection,” Henry said, speaking of a play where Luke Stocker and Dennis Kelly doubled an edge defender and Stephon Tuitt sliced in. “I was covering for Luke, because he had the lineman on the outside and I was going back out...

“I should have seen Tuitt, but I was looking at the safety. He got up on me fast because he came scot-free… That’s not my guy.

“Pass protection is keying your guys and picking them up.”


Mike Vrabel said problems up front needs to be corrected so Henry or the running back don’t wind up in those situations.
