NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF/AP) — Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry will have surgery after suffering an injury against the Colts on Sunday. Head coach Mike Vrabel said the team is not putting a timeline on his return.

Vrabel confirmed the update during his press conference on Monday, saying Henry will have surgery Tuesday morning on his right foot.

"We’ll have to move on,” Vrabel said. “We’ll have to move on, unfortunately without him in the short term and not look back."

"I know Derrick is going to work extremely hard to get back to do everything he can to help this football team," Vrabel said.

Monday morning, ESPN’s Adam Schefter was the first to report that Henry suffered a “potentially season-ending foot injury" in Indianapolis.

Henry had tests Monday to check the severity of the injury after he finished a 34-31 overtime win. Vrabel said he knows Henry will do everything possible to work himself back to help the Titans, who are now 6-2. Vrabel said if anyone can come back it will be Henry.

Tennessee took a three-game lead in the AFC South and also earned its third season sweep in the series.

The Titans visit the Rams on Sunday night.
