Derrick Henry Nominated for 2022 FedEx Ground Player of the Year


Derrick Henry is once again nominated for the FedEx Ground Player of the Year award.

Henry ranked second in the NFL with 1,538 rushing yards and tied for the second-most rushing touchdowns with 13.

His nine games with at least 100 rushing yards were a league-best this season. Henry, who ran for 219 rushing yards in Week 8, now has six career games with at least 200 rushing yards – tied for most such games in NFL history.

To celebrate the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Year, FedEx will donate $20,000 each to the HBCU choice of the winning quarterback and running back. Similar to the regular season donations, the $40,000 donation will help support needs-based scholarships. For the year, more than $100,000 will be granted among select HBCUs to support student scholarships.

FedEx will announce the 2022 FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Year winners at NFL Honors presented by Invisalign, a two-hour primetime awards special to air nationally on Thursday, February 9 from 9-11 p.m. ET (7-9 p.m. MT) on NBC from Symphony Hall in Phoenix, AZ.
