Henry waiting for NFL to hand down suspension

11/4/2007 - NFL Chris Henry Tennessee Titans + more

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee running back Chris Henry
played Sunday in the Titans' 20-7 victory over Carolina as a backup
to LenDale White.

The rookie said he doesn't know what happens next with a
four-game suspension from the NFL looming.

"I'm new to all this," he said.

Henry faces a four-game suspension reportedly for a positive
test for a banned substance added to the league's list within the
past year. He reportedly was going to be officially notified
Saturday with the chance to appeal the suspension.

Titans coach Jeff Fisher declined to comment after the game
because the team had not been officially notified by the NFL of the
suspension.

"At this point, I am awaiting for notification from the league
office and at that point we'll deal with the specifics of the
suspension, the possibility for appeal, those kinds of things,"
Fisher said.

Henry was drafted by the Titans in the second round in April out
of Arizona. Henry was deactivated for the first five games but has
played in three straight with Chris Brown recovering from a high
ankle sprain.

The rookie opened the game by returning a kickoff 46 yards,
setting up the Titans' opening touchdown drive. He had three
carries for minus-3 yards.

"You've got to keep it positive," Henry said. "You have to
always stay positive, no matter what. ... This is a positive team,
and a supportive team."
