You can't accuse Alabama's Derrick Henry of not supporting his teammates.
The running back posted a picture to Instagram Thursday evening wearing a T.J. Yeldon jersey.
Yeldon was Alabama's starting running back in 2013 and will likely enter 2014 as the starter as well. After Yeldon fumbled in the Sugar Bowl against Oklahoma, the door opened for Henry to receive more playing time. He had 27 carries in the regular season, but in the bowl game he had nine touches for 161 yards.
With Henry's emergence, Alabama has a potent combination at running back, especially when counting Kenyan Drake.
Of course, we'd be remiss if we didn't make a joke asking if Henry got the jersey at the Tuscaloosa, Ala. T-Town Gallery, but that's probably not all that likely.
