Tennessee Titans All-Pro running back Derrick Henry copped an insane 100-carat custom diamond chain that honors his career football achievements dating all the way back to high school. The chain is a gift in time for his birthday (Jan. 4) this week, and he has been moved to the “Designated for Return from Injured Reserve” list. That’s a pretty great birthday week.
Henry commissioned Ali The Celebrity Jeweler out of Dallas, Texas, to create the one-of-a-kind piece.
The chain features a large 6.5-inch “Y” pendant that represents Henry’s days at Yulee High School in Florida. There is a VS1 rated diamond-infused Heisman Trophy, commemorating Henry’s win back in 2015 as a member of the Alabama Crimson Tide.
The three logos of the Yulee Hornets, Alabama Crimson Tide and Tennessee Titans were connected together, and several beads were added to represent some of Henry’s historical football moments.
According to TMZ, there is a diamond 12K bead for his 12,124 rushing yards in high school that set a national record, and a diamond 2K bead for his 2,000 rushing yards in the Titans’ 2020 season.
No word on the cost, but 100 carats and a custom design? That’s got to be somewhere in the neighborhood of seven to eight figures.

Since the Titans designated him, they will have 21 days to officially activate him to the roster, which would mean the playoffs.Henry suffered a Jones fracture late in October, and hasn’t played in a game since the 31st. The prognosis was 6-10 weeks, but Jones fractures are tough injuries to heal, as the blood flow is limited in that area of the foot.
If — and it’s a big if — he’s able to return and play at a reasonable level the Titans become a serious contender again. Henry’s led the league in rushing the last two years, and despite missing eight games he’s still sixth in total rushing yards this season.
The Titans are in position to get the AFC’s No. 1 seed with a win against the lowly 4-12 Houston Texans this Sunday. They would have the conference’s lone bye and be two home wins from the Super Bowl.
That’s all possible if they have a reasonably healthy version of Henry.

He is the best back in football, and his presence takes pressure off quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Henry’s presence also helps the defense. If he’s on the field eating up yardage and time of possession the Titans’ front seven can rest and have the energy to get after opposing quarterbacks.
But one step at a time.
Let’s see if the Titans take care of business against the Texans and how Henry continues to rehab as he eyes a playoff return. If he’s strong and healthy enough he could be running all the way to the Super Bowl in Los Angeles next month.
A win there would secure his first title and a Super Bowl ring. A nice attachment for his chain of football achievements.
