Murray (hamstring) was limited at practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports. Though Murray has not been ruled out for Sunday's contest, Wolf suspects that Derrick Henry is a candidate to lead the Titans' rushing attack in Week 3. Added clarity on Murray's status may not arrive until shortly before Sunday's 4:05 ET kickoff, but at this stage, he's looking like a risky roll in fantasy lineups. In the event that he's scratched Sunday, the bruising Henry looks like an upside play after logging 14 carries for 92 yards and a TD against the Jaguars in Week 2.
Coach Mike Mularkey relayed Thursday that he's hopeful Murray (hamstring) will practice Friday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Murray worked on the treadmill during Thursday's practice, per Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com, but what he's able to do (or not do) Friday will go a long way toward determining the veteran back's chances of suiting up Sunday against the Seahawks. An uptick in carries awaits Derrick Henry in the event that Murray is out or limited at all in Week 3.
Murray (hamstring) remains day-to-day as Sunday's game against the Seahawks approaches. Murray didn't practice Wednesday, which will require his status to be monitored closely in the coming days. Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com relayed after Wednesday's session that coach Mike Mularkey indicated that he was hopeful that Murray would be available this weekend. If the veteran back doesn't suit up or is limited Sunday, Derrick Henry would see an added workload for the Titans.
Titans coach Mike Mularkey said Monday that Murray (hamstring) is considered day-to-day, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone reports. Mularkey also said he still views Murray and Derrick Henry as a clear starter/backup situation. Henry took full advantage of Murray's absence in the second half of Sunday's 37-16 win over the Jaguars, finishing with a career-high 92 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries. Combined with Murray's inefficient production through two games, the performance might have led to speculation about Henry taking over as the lead back. While it seems that won't happen unless Murray misses time, the former Heisman winner has at least made a clear case to handle a sizable share of the rushing workload. Murray's hamstring doesn't sound serious without context, but it's concerning to see him aggravate the same injury that bothered throughout much of August.
Coach Mike Mularkey revealed after Sunday's 37-16 win over the Jaguars that Murray is dealing with a tight hamstring, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports. Wolf notes that Murray took a seat in the third quarter of Sunday's contest, with the game well in hand. Murray's on-field limitations helped facilitate Derrick Henry's career-high 92 yards (to go along with a TD) on 14 carries. Murray's status is thus worth monitoring closely as Week 3's home game against the Seahawks approaches.
