Willie Henry’s first sack of his career was not even a full sack. The Ravens defensive tackle had to share it with outside linebacker Terrell Suggs when they took down Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky in overtime of an eventual loss on Oct. 15. So one might imagine how happy the 6-foot-2, 308-pound Henry must’ve been when he sacked the Green Bay Packers’ Brett Hundley twice in last Sunday’s Ravens win without splitting either sack. But the 2016 fourth-round draft pick said his satisfaction was fleeting. “You want to go out there and do it again because you know how good it feels,” he said Friday. “You now know the feeling of having two sacks. It’s kind of like now I want three sacks in a game. I just want to keep getting better. I’m pretty sure that if I get that third sack in a game, it’s going to feel good, but then I’m going to want to have four sacks in a game. I just want to be better than I was the last week.” After taking what amounted to a redshirt year in 2016, Henry has emerged as a dependable option along the defensive line. He has had three or more tackles in five games and already ranks third on the team in sacks with 2½. Henry is developing as defensive coordinator Dean Pees anticipated.
