NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Tennessee running back Chris Henry dropped his appeal Wednesday and started serving his four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
His agent Josh Luchs confirmed that Henry dropped his appeal, scheduled to be heard on Monday, in a move that would allow the rookie to return for the Titans' final two games of the regular season.
Henry was notified before the Titans' 20-7 win over Carolina on Nov. 4 that he tested positive for a substance added to the league's banned list within the past year. He appealed the suspension and played in losses to Jacksonville and at Denver.
But Chris Brown returned and played at Denver after missing four games with a high left ankle sprain.
Henry is fourth on the team in rushing with 22 carries for 104 yards, and he has been used on kickoff returns the past three games, where he is averaging 21.9 yards.
