Coach: Substance was just banned recently

11/5/2007 - NFL Chris Henry Tennessee Titans + more

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee rookie running back
Chris Henry faces a four-game suspension from the NFL, and he is
considering an appeal of his positive test for a substance added to
the league's banned list within the past year.

Henry was not available Monday with the Titans given the day
off. But coach Jeff Fisher said the only information he has is that
Henry is considering an appeal.

"Anytime there is a mistake, an error in judgment, we discuss
it and try to learn a lesson," Fisher said.

"I think he certainly regrets what he did, even though I don't
think he thought he was doing anything wrong. That's about all I
can say. It's a league matter. All I can say is, my understanding
is that he is considering an appeal."

Henry played Sunday in the Titans' 20-7 win over Carolina as a
backup to LenDale White. He has played three straight games with
veteran Chris Brown out because of a high ankle sprain. But Brown
has a chance to return Sunday when the Titans (6-2) host
Jacksonville (5-3).

The NFL's drug and banned substances programs are handled
confidentially. Joshua Luchs, Henry's agent, declined to comment on
Henry's plans when contacted Monday.
