Derrick Henry Wears Suit With Names Of Police Brutality Victims
Derrick Henry brought out a special suit for his Monday Night Football showdown against the Denver Broncos.
Henry, who single-handedly put the Tennessee Titans on his back in the postseason last year, decided to start the new year off with a bang by wearing a suit with the names of police brutality and racial injustice victims written all over it.
Names like George Floyd, Tamir Rice and Breonna Taylor were featured – as were many others.

Needless to say, fans on Twitter went crazy over the wardrobe choice.

That being said, not everyone approved.
Why Derrick stay away from all this and worry about football. I already stopped watching all games except the Titans. Don’t take that from me please

@KingHenry_2 what about the cops shot in Compton yesterday or the hundreds of other cops shot and killed over the years. Why not put their names on a jacket?

Henry’s clothing choices notwithstanding, this game will be a big one for Tennessee.
The Denver Broncos have a lot to prove and seem to really be rallying around their new quarterback.
Bill Belichick laid it all out. https://t.co/yKZHogKVSz

The Titans, meanwhile, are trying to show that last year’s magical playoff run was no fluke.
Tennessee and Denver will kick off at 7:20 pm on ESPN.
