During a recent press conference, Henry did his best to avoid a similar controversy to what his quarterback, Ryan Tannehill. When asked for his thoughts on the team drafting his backup running back, Henry seemed excited about working with Hassan.
“I was excited when we got him, Hassan is a beast,” Henry said. “I actually got to catch his game against Ohio State where he went off. Seeing him in person, he’s a big dude, he’s a solid dude and just seeing him out there you can tell everything is coming natural to him, I just told him don’t try to get too overwhelmed and take it day by day.”
