DeMarco Murray rushed 14 times for 115 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' Week 3 win over the Seahawks, adding a five-yard reception.
Nursing a bulky hamstring, Murray surprisingly got the start. He spent the first half brickwalling into the Seahawks' stout front seven. Having him lace up was looking like a foolish decision from the Titans. Then he went bonkers after the break, with the play of the day being his game-sealing, 75-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter. Murray found the edge, then followed a caravan as he reversed fields. The marathon run made for easily his best game of the season. Murray has still yet to top 14 carries, but remains ahead of Derrick Henry. He'll be on the RB1/2 borderline for next week's game against the Texans. Sep 24 - 7:42 PM

Date:

DeMarco Murray (hamstring) is active for Week 3 against the Seahawks.

Reports have pegged Murray as nowhere near 100 percent. He's likely active for a limited, if not emergency, role. He's a risky RB3/FLEX in fantasy. Derrick Henry should carry the mail. Inactive for the Titans are WR Corey Davis, DB Johnathan Cyprien, OG Corey Levin, LB Josh Carraway, DB Kalan Reed, LB Nate Palmer and DT Karl Klug.
Sep 24 - 2:36 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports DeMarco Murray (hamstring, questionable) "more than likely" will play Week 3 against the Seahawks.

This seemed to be the way things were heading after Murray returned to a limited practice on Friday, but ESPN's Cameron Wolfe suggested Murray is unlikely to get a full workload even if he suits up. Derrick Henry will be the better fantasy play regardless of Murray's status.

DeMarco Murray (hamstring) is questionable for Week 3 against the Seahawks.

Murray returned to a limited practice on Friday after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday and was seen catching passes and running routes. With Derrick Henry playing well it makes sense for the Titans to rest Murray this week, but coach Mike Mularkey hasn't tipped his hand yet. Even if he plays, Murray will be difficult to trust at less than 100 percent and Henry likely to lead the backfield in touches. Kickoff is set for 4:05 ET.
Sep 22 - 1:04 PM

DeMarco Murray (hamstring) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Murray was "inside on the treadmill." Two missed practices for a workhorse 29-year-old back do not guarantee he will sit — Murray is the kind of player who can suit up without practicing — but things certainly aren't looking good. Even if Murray does play, Derrick Henry seems likely to take the lead against the Seahawks.
Sep 21 - 3:44 PM

DeMarco Murray (hamstring) didn't practice on Wednesday.

Neither did Corey Davis (hamstring), who has already been ruled out for Sunday's game against Seattle. Derrick Henry erupted for a career-high 92 yards in Week 2 and would carry the load if Murray is absent for Week 3.
Sep 20 - 4:52 PM

The Titans consider DeMarco Murray (hamstring) day to day.

The same is true of Corey Davis (hamstring). Coach Mike Mularkey described Murray's injury as "tightness," and said it didn't happen on any particular play. It's apparently a continuation of a training camp issue. Murray was ineffective in Week 1 before struggling again on Sunday. Derrick Henry gave the running game a shot in the arm. Even if Murray is active for Week 3, it appears Henry will lead the team in carries.
Sep 18 - 3:22 PM

DeMarco Murray was dealing with a tight hamstring during the second half of the Titans' Week 2 win over the Jaguars.

It helps explain why Derrick Henry dominated work in the second half. While the hamstring is a concern for Murray moving forward, he also now has to worry about losing work to Henry, who rushed for 92 yards and a touchdown on just 14 carries against Jacksonville. This backfield is trending toward an even timeshare, and the Seahawks are coming to town this week. Murray will be more of an RB2 if he is active for that matchup.
Sep 18 - 9:20 AM

DeMarco Murray totaled 25 yards on nine carries while securing one-of-two targets for three yards Sunday in the Titans’ Week 2 win over the Jaguars.

Murray was scarcely used in the second half, managing just two carries for four yards after halftime. The Titans rode the hot hand with Derrick Henry, who outplayed Murray all afternoon. Tennessee was up big and probably didn’t want to risk Murray getting hurt, especially given his lengthy injury history. With that said, Henry has become a real threat to Murray’s workload. Murray may be in for another rough game with Seattle coming to town in Week 3.
Sep 17 - 5:29 PM

DeMarco Murray rushed 16 times for 44 yards in the Titans' Week 1 loss to the Raiders, adding two receptions for 16 additional yards.

Murray found less rushing room than expected against the Raiders' soft ground defense, and ended up ceding six carries to Derrick Henry. Henry produced only 25 yards, but looked more explosive than Murray. Henry was involved early, getting the ball on Tennessee's second series before leading the third. Murray remains locked in as the Titans' starter, but could be more of an RB2 for next week's tough matchup with the Jaguars.
Sep 10 - 5:04 PM

DeMarco Murray compiled 16 yards on six carries while adding one catch for a loss of three yards Sunday in the Titans’ third preseason game.

It was Murray’s first work of the preseason after missing the first two games with a minor hamstring injury. Murray didn’t break off any big runs—his long gain was five yards—but at least he looked healthy. The 29-year-old has topped 1,000 yards in three of his last four seasons and has a good chance to make it four out of five in 2017. He’s a mid-range RB1.
Aug 27 - 4:36 PM

DeMarco Murray (hamstring) isn't expected to play in Saturday's preseason game.

Murray was healthy enough to suit up, but didn't take part in pregame warmups. The Titans are taking it slow despite his return to practice. Derrick Henry will continue to rep with the starters.
Aug 19 - 2:42 PM

DeMarco Murray (hamstring) returned to practice Monday.

Murray missed a little under two weeks. The Titans were never going to rush Murray back onto the field. It gave them an excuse to see more of Derrick Henry with the ones. Murray could see some run in the second preseason game.
Aug 14 - 9:58 PM

DeMarco Murray (hamstring) will sit out the Titans' preseason opener on Saturday.

The Titans were never going to risk Murray's health this weekend. He has 11 days to get ready for Tennessee's second exhibition game.
Aug 8 - 6:25 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said DeMarco Murray (hamstring) is "close" to a return.

Murray has been sidelined by a hamstring injury for a week, but he was able to get in some work during individual drills on Monday. "We're easing him back into it," Mularkey said. "We'll see how he feels after what he did and hopefully we'll get him out here (on Tuesday)." Derrick Henry has reportedly shined during Murray's absence, but the veteran still is the favorite for the lead role.
