NASHVILLE - Tennessee rookie running back Chris Henry appealed his four-game suspension Wednesday for violating the NFL's substance abuse-policy, keeping him available to the Titans with LenDale White and Chris Brown both injured.
Henry officially was notified last weekend that he had tested positive for a substance added to the league's banned list within the past year, and he had five days to appeal or accept the suspension. He played in the Titans' 20-7 win against Carolina last Sunday and practiced Wednesday.
White sat out practice with what he called a sore toe, but Brown practiced in his first full session since suffering a left ankle sprain in the second quarter of a 13-10 loss Oct. 14 at Tampa Bay.
"It's always somewhat frustrating when you're dealing with a situation like this," Henry said. "But we'll get through it and take it day by day."
Henry has played as White's backup with Brown out, and he has 18 carries for 102 yards and two touchdowns.
