Chiefs' Frank Clark says he sees 'no difficulty in tackling' Derrick Henry

Chiefs' Frank Clark says he sees 'no difficulty in tackling' Derrick Henry

Henry's 137 rushing yards after contact in last weekend's win over the Ravens were the most in a game in the past 10 postseasons.

The Kansas City defensive tackle wasn't initially expected to play until testing his injured calf pregame, NFL Network's James Palmer reported.

His past eight games have produced historic results.

Frank Clark is living dangerously prior to Sunday's AFC Championship Game. He's just a big body, and when people look at him, they're scared to tackle him or they look at him and they're scared to play aggressive. "He's just a big guy".

Clark gave the Titans some bulletin-board material ahead of Sunday's game with his assessment of Henry.


"... He's just easy to me up front because I don't look at any running back like they can't be tackled".

The Chiefs will have one of their best players returning Sunday. I think I'm the aggressor.

The full list of Kansas City inactives are: quarterback Matt Moore, cornerback Morris Claiborne, running back LeSean McCoy, linebacker Darron Lee and offensive linemen Ryan Hunter, Jackson Barton and Andrew Wylie.

Clark may have missed what happened to Earl Thomas earlier this postseason.

"Those guys didn't seem too interested in tackling him", Thomas told reporters. Facing the No. 1 seeded Ravens last Saturday night, Henry rushed for 195 yards on 30 carries in the Titans' 28-12 win.
