Titans Hit Daily Double: RB Derrick Henry Named AFC Offensive Player of the Month, Punter Ryan Stonehouse Named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month


NASHVILLE – The Titans have hit the NFL's daily double for monthly awards.

On Thursday, the NFL announced running back Derrick Henry has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Month for October, while punter Ryan Stonehouse has been named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month.

The awards are based on Weeks 4-8, when Henry racked up 563 yards and five rushing touchdowns in wins over the Colts, Commanders, Colts and Texans. Henry also caught nine passes for 82 yards in those contests, giving him 645 all-purpose yards in the four games combined.

On Wednesday, Henry was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week after rushing for 219 yards and two touchdowns in the team's October 30 contest vs the Texans.

Stonehouse had a heck of an October as well, averaging 51.7 yards on 20 punts, with a long of 66 yards.

An undrafted rookie from Colorado State, Stonehouse averaged 52.8 yards on four punts in the team's October 2 contest at Indianapolis, with a 47.8-yard net; 52.0 yards on eight punts in the team's October 9 win at Washington, with a 48.4-yard net; 54.7 yards on three punts vs Indianapolis, with a 39.0-yard net; and 48.4 yards on five punts at Houston, with a 40.8-yard net.

Stonehouse put four punts down inside the 20-yard line in the four games in October, with only one touchback.

The Titans return to action on Sunday at the Kansas City Chiefs.
