NASHVILLE – The Titans returned to the practice field on Thursday to continue preparations for Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

-Derrick Henry isn’t worried about previous matchups with the Bengals.

The Titans running back has also moved past last Sunday’s loss against the Browns, when the offense struggled mightily.

Henry’s focus is on improving, and having success moving forward.

“It takes all 11 — everybody focused, having the will to get off the line of scrimmage, create space, us finishing runs, guys going in there and digging out safeties and DBs,” Henry said. “(The Bengals) have had success against us the last couple of games, and we just have to be better focused and get into drives, and everybody do what they are supposed to.”

Through three games, Henry has 163 yards on 51 carries so far this season.

Last week against the Browns, Henry had just 20 yards on 11 attempts.

It’s safe to say he’s ready to play again.

“I am always motivated to play the next game,” Henry said. “Last weekend, it was rough. We didn’t have much success. … But at the end of the day, I am always going to be locked in, I’m always going to be focused on my job and what I have to do. I am going to go out there and play my best.

“Did last weekend add a little more fuel? Definitely.”

-I chatted with edge rusher Arden Key on Thursday, and asked him about the key to impacting quarterback Joe Burrow and the Bengals.

“(Burrow) is getting the ball out quick – he’s the best right now that we’ve played so far of getting the ball out the quickest,” Key said. “We know a lot of that has to do with the calf; he can’t move around a lot in the pocket. So, it’s about getting balls batted down when they are getting the ball out fast, and when the opportunity comes, when he does hold the ball, we have to get him down on the ground.”
