The Tennessee Titans' Super Bowl dreams took a hit Monday morning when it was reported that star running back Derrick Henry suffered a significant foot injury in the team's Week 8 win over the Indianapolis Colts.

According to multiple reports, Henry had an MRI scheduled on Monday to understand the extent of the damage believed to be located in fifth metatarsal in his foot. The Titans fear Henry's injury could potentially end the NFL MVP candidate's 2021 season

Later on Monday, head coach Mike Vrabel announced that Henry will undergo surgery on Tuesday morning. There's currently no timetable for his return.

Henry finished with 28 carries for 68 yards in the Titans 34-31 overtime win over AFC South-rival Indianapolis.

The Titans (6-2) have a three-game lead over the Colts (3-5) plus two head-to-head tiebreaker wins. Tennessee plays Von Miller and the Los Angeles Rams (7-1) on Sunday Night Football in Week 9.
