NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Rookie running back Chris Henry returned to the Tennessee Titans on Monday after serving his four-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on anabolic steroids and related substances.

Coach Jeff Fisher said Henry was back in the team's building Monday and stayed in good shape.

"He missed being around. He's looking forward to contributing again," Fisher said.

Henry originally fought his suspension before dropping his appeal for a positive test involving a substance added to the league's banned list within the past year. He still ranks fourth on the roster with 104 yards on 22 carries with two touchdowns in limited playing time.

Fisher said the Titans have requested a roster exemption through the weekend, which they can lift at any time once they determine Henry's physical condition.

"It makes sense to evaluate him on the practice field and take advantage of the exemption as long as you can," Fisher said.
