Murray rushed 12 times for 40 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 36-22 win over the Colts. He also caught all four of his targets for 47 yards. Murray gave the Titans the lead with a three-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter. While that marked his second score of the season, Murray's 16 touches were his second most thus far, trailing only Week 5's 18. That being said, Murray was handed seven fewer carries than teammate Derrick Henry, who finished with 131 yards and a touchdown of his own. Sporting two solid options, the Titans' share of backfield touches should be interesting to monitor in the coming weeks, starting this Sunday against the Browns.
Murray rushed 14 times for 58 yards and added four catches on five targets for 11 yards while losing a fumble in Sunday's 16-10 loss to the Dolphins. Murray struggled to get much going on the ground with Miami keying on him over the Matt Cassel-led passing game. Outside of a 75-yard touchdown run against Seattle in Week 3, Murray's rushed for just 198 yards on 55 other carries for an average of 3.6 yards per attempt. Despite his early struggles, the 29-year-old running back remains the clear starter over Derrick Henry, who got only four touches in this one.
Murray rushed for 31 yards on seven carries and caught two passes for four yards in Sunday's 57-14 loss to Houston. Murray finally got into a groove last week with 120 total yards and a score, but he was unable to keep it going in Week 4. In fairness, it's hard for Tennessee to keep its smash-mouth style when trailing by multiple scores for most of the game. Look for Tennessee to lean heavily on Murray and Derrick Henry should Marcus Mariota miss next week's matchup against Miami after suffering a hamstring injury in the third quarter Sunday.
Murray (hamstring) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports. Murray didn't practice last Wednesday or Thursday, but he looked healthy enough when he ran for a 75-yard touchdown in a 33-27 win over the Seahawks on Sunday. He apparently came out of the game without any setbacks, so he should be fine to handle his usual lead-back role in Week 4 Houston. Backfield mate Derrick Henry (thigh) was also a full practice participant Wednesday.
Murray (hamstring) rushed 14 times for 115 yards and a touchdown and caught one of his two targets for five yards during Sunday's 33-27 win over Seattle. Not only was Murray on the injury report all week, he didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday before being a limited participant Friday. It clearly didn't impact his on-field performance, though. Additionally, backfield mate Derrick Henry is now dealing with a bruised thigh that he sustained Sunday. Murray's 75-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter put Tennessee ahead 30-14 and was a back-breaking score for the Seahawks. After two poor fantasy showings to start the season, Murray's huge game against Seattle was a welcomed reassurance for fantasy owners.
