Corey Davis (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 3.

The early rule out comes as a surprise after Davis played through a mid-game setback last week. Coach Mike Mularkey said Davis was day to day, but the Titans want to rest him in an effort to get fully healthy. Davis will target a Week 4 return.

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.

Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) is day to day.

Coach Mike Mularkey confirmed Davis is dealing with an aggravation of his training camp injury, which isn't encouraging. He could be given Week 3 off in an effort to get back to full health. If Davis does play, he will be less than 100 percent against the Seahawks' elite defense, making him a fantasy no-go.

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.

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.

Derrick Henry cruised to 92 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries Sunday in the Titans’ Week 2 win over the Jaguars.

He was not targeted in the passing game. Henry only saw two first-half carries but exploded after halftime, ripping off chunk gains as the Titans pulled away for a decisive victory. The former Heisman Trophy winner broke free for the game’s first touchdown on a 17-yard burst in the third quarter and probably could have had a couple more if the Titans had used him on the goal-line (Delanie Walker and Jalston Fowler both vultured second-half touchdowns). After mostly serving as a handcuff for DeMarco Murray last year, Henry is finally seeing enough work to warrant standalone value in fantasy leagues. He gets the Seahawks in Week 3.
Sep 17 - 5:31 PM

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

Delanie Walker supplied four catches for 61 yards on four targets while adding a one-yard rushing touchdown Sunday in the Titans’ Week 2 win over the Jaguars.

Three of his four catches came after halftime including a 19-yard pickup on third down early in the third quarter. His lone touchdown also came in the third quarter on an end-around on second-and-goal from the one-yard line. A frustrated Jalen Ramsey shoved him at the end of the play, resulting in a personal foul. That score marked Walker’s first career rushing touchdown. Walker has a tough home matchup against the Seahawks next week.
Sep 17 - 5:27 PM

Rishard Matthews pulled in three-of-five targets for 43 yards Sunday in the Titans’ Week 2 win over the Jaguars.

He made a couple nice catches late in the first half, including a 15-yard pickup on a play where he was drilled by Jags safety Barry Church. Matthews also set up a Ryan Succop field goal by beating A.J. Bouye for a 20-yard gain with 19 seconds left in the second quarter. He was targeted in the end zone on third-and-goal in the third quarter but Marcus Mariota put too much air on it. Matthews will draw a tough assignment next week when the Titans return home to play Seattle.
Sep 17 - 5:25 PM

Eric Decker hauled in three-of-five targets for 32 yards Sunday in the Titans’ Week 2 win over the Jaguars.

All of his targets came before halftime. Decker absorbed Marcus Mariota’s first two completions for a combined 26 yards but was rarely heard from after that. Sunday’s clunker comes on the heels of an even worse performance in Week 1 (three catches for 10 yards on eight targets). Tennessee admittedly didn’t have to throw much in Sunday’s blowout, but Decker’s slow start is still troubling, especially with another tough game on the schedule next week against Seattle.
Sep 17 - 5:22 PM

Taywan Taylor caught his lone target for a 42-yard pickup Sunday in the Titans’ Week 2 win over the Jaguars.

Taylor hobbled off with a left ankle injury in the first half but was only sidelined for a handful of snaps. Later he made an incredible diving catch for the game’s longest play, beating A.J. Bouye down the sideline for a 42-yard gain in the third quarter. The third-round rookie has pulled in all three of his targets for 56 yards over his first two games. He’ll have his work cut out for him next week against Seattle’s Legion of Boom.
Sep 17 - 5:20 PM

Marcus Mariota completed 15-of-27 passes for 215 yards with one touchdown and one interception while adding six carries for 24 yards Sunday in the Titans’ Week 2 win over the Jaguars.

He was sacked once for a loss of four yards. Mariota endured a sluggish first half, but was better after halftime, completing 6-of-9 passes for 135 yards and a touchdown over the final two quarters. The Titans turned to the running game once they got ahead, which limited Mariota’s opportunities. His lone interception came in the second quarter when Telvin Smith jumped in front of a pass intended for tight end Jonnu Smith. He’ll have to bring his A-game next week against the Seahawks.
Sep 17 - 5:19 PM

Corey Davis left Sunday's game against the Jaguars with a hamstring injury and is questionable to return.

Davis may have aggravated a pre-existing injury. He caught one-of-three passes for four yards before exiting in the third quarter. His absence will open up more looks for Rishard Matthews, Eric Decker and Delanie Walker, though Tennessee may look to kill clock now that they've built a comfortable lead.
Sep 17 - 3:07 PM

Titans declared SS Johnathan Cyprien, Josh Carraway, Kevin Dodd, Corey Levin, Nate Palmer, Kalan Reed and Tye Smith inactive for Week 2 against the Jaguars.

Cyprien is out with a knee issue while Tye is battling a hand injury. Jurrell Casey (back), LeShaun Simms (groin) and Wesley Woodyard (illness) are all active for Tennessee.
Sep 17 - 11:55 AM

Titans DE Jurrell Casey (back) returned to a full practice on Friday.

There was some concern about Casey's status after missing Tennessee's first two practices this week, but now he should be on track to play Sunday against Jacksonville. Casey logged 50 snaps in last week's opener.
