Henry has played one less game than Jacobs this season. Jacobs averaged 97.2 rushing yards in 17 games and Henry averaged 96.1 rushing yards in 16 games in 2022.

Jacobs and Henry became the first players from the same college program to finish first and second in rushing in the same NFL season since 1990, when Barry Sanders of the Detroit Lions led the league and Thurman Thomas of the Buffalo Bills finished second. Sanders and Thomas played at Oklahoma State.

“Proud of Josh” Henry said During an appearance on Tuesday’s episode of the podcast “Bosin’ with the Boys with Will Compton and Taylor Lewan.” “He worked for it. He went crazy. I gotta watch his game against the 49ers, which is probably the best defense in the league. He was killing them. He didn’t have a lot of yardage, but he was crazy. So proud of Josh. I think he won whatever he got with that.” I know they didn’t pick a fifth-year option last year, so I know that was the trigger.

“Proud of Josh, man, and, you know, RBU, Bama Built, Roll Tide. You know what that is. Nagy Harris, Kenyan (Drake) doing his thing, Mark Ingram holding it for a while. Proud of them boys.”

Harris joined Jacobs and Henry as Lunge 1,000 yards in 2022, with 1,034 yards and seven touchdowns on 272 carries for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Rookie Brian Robinson Jr. He is the leading rusher for the Washington Commanders with 797 yards and two touchdowns on 205 carries despite missing the first four games of his rookie season.

In addition to Drake with the Baltimore Ravens and Ingram with the New Orleans Saints, former Alabama defensemen who carried football during the 2022 season included Damien Harris of the New England Patriots and Jerome Ford of the Cleveland Browns.

Henry also reminded the podcast hosts that he came to Alabama in the same class as New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara, who transferred without playing for the Crimson Tide.

“People are always trying to argue about this,” Henry said. “Bama is RBU, bro.”

Henry said he thought Georgia, Ohio State and Wisconsin were rivals to Alabama in the Pac-U running rank. In the 2022 NFL season, six former Wisconsin players had rushing attempts. For Georgia, it was the number five, and for Ohio State it was the number three. Nick Chubb of the Browns was the only 1,000-yard rusher from the three programs in the NFL in 2022.

Shaun Alexander became the first former Alabama player to lead the league in rushing with 1,880 yards and 27 touchdowns on 370 carries for the Seattle Seahawks in 2005.

Henry earned rushing crowns with 1,540 yards and 16 touchdowns on 303 carries in 2019 and 2,027 yards and 17 touchdowns on 378 carries in 2020.
