Houston Worried About Derrick Henry’s Famous Stiff Arm


The Titans Derrick Henry has topped 200 yards rushing in each of his last two meetings against Houston.
The Titans would love to see him reach that mark again Sunday against the Texans since Tennessee needs a win to clinch a playoff spot.
Although Houston’s defensive coordinator would prefer that Henry leave his famous stiff arm at home.

Said Houston coordinator Anthony Weaver:”in terms of coaching against it. That’s easy. You try to tell guys you know eyes to the thighs. Drive for five. Not to tackle the guy high or knock down the stiff arm if you see it. I’m just glad I don’t have to face it personally. I mean. (chuckles) I’m not trying to be on SportsCenter with some of those things that he has done, but he is certainly a dynamic back.”

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
