Titans' Derrick Henry: Modest role likely in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry is expected to play second fiddle to DeMarco Murray (foot) out of the Titans' backfield next season. On Wednesday, head coach Mike Mularkey confirmed as much, calling Murray "the guy," according to Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.

Despite admitting that he played through a torn plantar plate in his right foot in 2016, Murray still gobbled up 81 percent of the Titans' offensive snaps, which translated to 20-plus touches in 11 of 16 games. Meanwhile, Henry's earned 25 percent of such snaps, churning out 490 yards and five touchdowns on his 110 carries. The Titans' run-first mentality should afford him a similar workload in his second season, but a serious injury to Murray may be the only way Henry is truly unleashed.

Titans' DeMarco Murray: Top RB in Tennessee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Mike Mularkey considers Murray (foot) to be "the guy" in the Titans' backfield, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. "He has shown he is the guy and he will continue to be that guy," Mularkey said Wednesday.

Mularkey was asked whether 2016 second-round pick Derrick Henry will be a bigger part of the offense next season, to which the head honcho expressed his support of Murray as the main man. Henry is an insurance policy in the event Murray suffers an injury, but the latter didn't miss one game in his first campaign with the Titans, despite coming down with a torn plantar plate in his right foot in Week 8. Mularkey is a proponent of "a one-two punch to smash it down peoples' throats," so the 29-year-old Murray may yield some touches at times to his younger counterpart. Considering Mularkey's other comments, though, a healthy Murray should be the recipient of 20-plus touches per game, as he was on 11 occasions last year.

Titans' Karl Klug: Making solid progress in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klug (Achilles) is progressing well in his recovery from his December surgery, Paul Kuharsky of ESPN reports.

Klug tore his Achilles late in the season and still faces months of recovery before he's back to full health. He isn't expected to be ready to return prior to training camp. Klug is currently a pending free agent, but he may be cheaper for the Titans to re-sign given his injury.

Titans' Marcus Mariota: Likely out until training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Mike Mularkey said Wednesday that Mariota (fibula) likely won't take part in workouts until training camp, Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com reports.

Progress has been made from the broken right fibula that brought Mariota's second season to a close in Week 16. In particular, his rehab now includes work on a pool treadmill. Prior to the update from Mularkey, Mariota was expected to be a participant in OTAs in May or June, per Jason Wolf of The Tennessean. However, the Titans will now be "very cautious" with their franchise quarterback to ensure he avoids any setbacks as the offseason unfolds.
