Some non-quarterbacks are getting into the act with touchdown passes early in Week 7.

NFL rushing leader Derrick Henry has thrown a 5-yard scoring pass to tight end MyCole Pruitt out of the wildcat for Tennessee against Kansas City.

New England’s Kendrick Bourne has a 25-yard TD pass to fellow receiver Nelson Agholor after catching a backward pass from Mac Jones and faking a run against the New York Jets. Both TDs came on the opening possessions.

It was the first career pass for Bourne, who had a go-ahead 75-yard touchdown catch late in regulation last week against Dallas before the Patriots lost in overtime.

It wasn’t Henry’s first TD pass. The two-time defending rushing champ threw on in a divisional playoff win over Baltimore during the 2019 season.

It’s the fourth time since 2018 with multiple touchdown passes from non-quarterbacks in the same week.

The Tennessee Titans are rolling early on offense against Kansas City after struggling to score in the first quarter this season coming in.

Ryan Tannehill spread the ball around to A.J. Brown, Julio Jones and Derrick Henry. Then the Titans let Henry, the NFL’s rushing leader, finish off the drive out of the wildcat. Henry threw a 5-yard pass to tight end MyCole Pruitt for the touchdown and a 7-0 lead.

Henry also threw a TD pass in a divisional win over Baltimore in January 2020.

Arizona coach Kliff Kingsbury has cleared COVID-19 protocols and will be on the sideline when the undefeated Cardinals play Houston.

Kyler Murray is trying to lead the Cardinals to their first 7-0 start since 1974, 14 years before the franchise moved to Phoenix from St. Louis. Arizona defensive end J.J. Watt is facing the Texans for the first time after spending his first 10 seasons playing with them.

Kingsbury’s positive COVID-19 test was announced two days before Arizona played at Cleveland last week. Murray threw four touchdown passes in the Cardinals’ 37-14 win.

Arizona quarterbacks coach Cam Turner and defensive tackle Zach Allen also were sidelined last week because of coronavirus protocols.
