Just when you think there is nothing else he can do to impress, think again.

Coming off of a game-winning touchdown in overtime against the Baltimore Ravens last week, Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry carried the rock 27 times for 178 yards and three touchdowns in a 45-26 win over the Indianapolis Colts. 

The majority of his work was done in the first half with 140 yards and all three of his scores. Henry eclipsed the 5,000 yard rushing mark for his career on Sunday. 

Through 11 games, the former University of Alabama standout has 1,257 yards on the ground on 256 carries, which leads the NFL. He has a real shot to win the rushing title in back-to-back seasons.

For the second-straight week, Henry is the Bama Central Crimson Tide Pro Athlete of the Week.
