Less than a week after signing Andrews to a one-year extension, the Titans made a move that promises to significantly limit his playing time. Andrews rushed for 520 yards and three touchdowns while splitting time with Bishop Sankey, Dexter McCluster and David Cobb last season, but he doesn't figure to approach those totals as long as Murray -- who is slated to head the Titans' backfield in 2016 -- stays healthy.
Andrews, an undrafted free agent, signed with the Titans in 2014. Last season, he rushed for 520 yards and three touchdowns on 143 attempts. Andrews will compete for carries next season with fellow backs Bishop Sankey, Dexter McCluster, and David Cobb.
Antonio Andrews gained just one yard on two carries, failed to catch either of his two targets, and lost a fumble in Sunday's disastrous performance against the Texans.
Andrews didn't get anther carry after Houston's Quintin Demps took his opening-possession fumble 33 yards to the house. Tennessee's offense fared no better without his involvement, as Bishop Sankey and David Cobb combined for just 29 rushing yards. None of the three make for particularly appealing options against the desperate Colts next week.
Antonio Andrews rushed 14 times for 45 yards and caught five of six targets for 25 receiving yards during Sunday's loss to the Patriots.
Despite continued talk that David Cobb would get a bigger piece of the backfield workload, Andrews rushed 10 more times than Cobb, who produced just nine yards. Andrews has just one touchdown in the last 10 games, though it's possible the Tennessee Titans could give him more touches in Week 16 against the Texans if backup quarterback Zach Mettenberger is under center in place of Marcus Mariota, who suffered a knee injury Sunday.
Antonio Andrews was held to just eight yards on four carries and one catch for six yards on two targets, but salvaged his fantasy day with a 41-yard touchdown pass Sunday against the Jets.
The former high school quarterback's 41-yard completion to quarterback Marcus Mariota out of the wildcat formation accounted for Tennessee's only touchdown of the game in what was otherwise an abysmal offensive performance. Andrews' four carries actually tied him for the team lead as the Tennessee Titans abandoned the run against a stout Jets unit, and he should be a bigger factor in the ground game next week against the much less intimidating Patriots defense.
