Player News - Titans

Date: Team: Pos:

Corey Davis (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday.

Coach Mike Mularkey said Davis could play this week, but he's still not practicing. The good news is he's not an early rule out. Davis looks likely to return after Tennessee's Week 8 bye.
Oct 18 - 5:14 PM

Marcus Mariota (hamstring) practiced in full Wednesday.

The Titans only had a light workout, but it sounds like Mariota should practice fully all week. He continues to trend up after escaping Monday night's win without a setback. Mariota should have more mobility against the Browns, giving him a higher ceiling for Week 7.
Oct 18 - 4:22 PM

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

Murray was a spectator Wednesday after being plagued by hamstring tightness on MNF. Most signs point to Murray suiting up, though the Titans can probably beat the winless Browns without his assistance. Coming off a career-high 131 rushing yards on Monday night, Derrick Henry is the better fantasy bet this week.
Oct 18 - 4:15 PM

Titans OLB Derrick Morgan is day to day with a strained abdominal.

Morgan suffered the injury in Monday's win over the Colts. Morgan has started all six games thus far this season, playing about 75 percent of the snaps.
Oct 17 - 5:23 PM

Speaking Tuesday, Titans coach Mike Mularkey said the team's Week 6 timeshare at running back was a "good model."

Derrick Henry and DeMarco Murray both played 39 snaps one week after Murray out-snapped Henry 49-11. Henry ran circles around Murray against the Colts, out-touching him 20-16 and out-gaining him 145-87. Mularkey also said Henry has become the team's "go-to" running back in the fourth quarter. Mularkey's comments make it clear there shouldn't be another game where Murray plays 38 more snaps than Henry, but it's going to remain a messy situation, with the veteran likely to continue taking the lead. Henry has been the better player this season. Maybe the Titans' workload delineation will eventually begin to reflect that.
Oct 17 - 5:14 PM

DeMarco Murray is dealing with hamstring tightness, but will be active for Week 7.

One week after dominating snaps, Murray played as many (39) as Derrick Henry against the Colts. Henry both out-touched and out-gained his veteran backfield mate as Murray checked in and out of the game. Murray has been battling hamstring issues since training camp, and is merely the RB18 by total points through the season's first six weeks. He'll be a risk/reward RB2 for Week 7 against the Browns.
Oct 17 - 5:09 PM

Marcus Mariota (hamstring) escaped Monday night's win over the Colts without setbacks.

Mariota's mobility was noticeably limited, but he played better and better as the game wore on. It was an extremely impressive effort by a player who isn't known for staying confined to the pocket. Mariota offers monster upside for Week 7 against the Browns.
Oct 17 - 5:05 PM

Marcus Mariota (hamstring) said he felt good after Monday night's win over the Colts.

Mariota was clearly limited by his hamstring injury, but it did not stop him from throwing for 306 yards and a touchdown in an important divisional win. Barring a mid-week setback, he should be ready to torch the Browns on Sunday.
Oct 17 - 10:06 AM

Taywan Taylor caught 2-of-4 targets for 61 yards and one touchdown in the Titans' Week 6 win over the Colts.

Rotoworld draft guru Josh Norris couldn't contain his excitement. It was rookie Taylor's first career touchdown and came on a 53-yard deep ball against a miscommunication on the Colts' back end. The long score broke a 22-22 tie in the fourth quarter. Taylor is headed back to No. 4 receiver duties shortly once fellow rookie Corey Davis returns from his hamstring injury. Taylor doesn't have any redraft appeal but is a strong hold in Dynasty formats.
Oct 17 - 12:25 AM

Delanie Walker caught 4-of-8 targets for 17 yards in the Titans' Week 6 win over the Colts.

Tennessee tried to get Walker a touchdown, giving him a carry on a jet sweep at the goal line, but he lost three yards on it, and then Marcus Mariota fired high in the back of the end zone to Walker on the next play. Walker has yet to catch a touchdown this season and has topped 50 yards once since Week 2. Week 7 presents a get-right breakout spot for Walker against the hapless Browns.
Oct 17 - 12:23 AM

Rishard Matthews caught all four of his targets for 69 yards in the Titans' Week 6 win over the Colts.

The targets marked a season-low, but Matthews made them count and topped 50 yards for the first time since Week 3 and third time all year. Matthews took a screen pass 27 yards inside the five-yard line but was unable to stay in bounds all the way to the end zone as he danced the sideline. Matthews will have breakout potential next week in a ripe matchup against the Browns.
Oct 17 - 12:20 AM

Eric Decker caught 7-of-9 targets for 88 yards in the Titans' Week 6 win over the Colts.

All three numbers marked new season-bests for Decker. He has still yet to find the end zone with the Titans, however, but Week 7 against the Browns will present a great opportunity for Decker to reach pay dirt. Decker will be a reliable WR3, especially in PPR formats, for that matchup in Cleveland.
Oct 17 - 12:15 AM

DeMarco Murray rushed 12 times for 40 yards and one touchdown in the Titans' Week 6 win over the Colts.

He added 47 yards as a receiver by catching all four of his targets. Murray again looked less than 100 percent as he limped around the field, but he was able to cash in a goal-line touchdown plunge by hammering it into the end zone on three consecutive carries. Murray has failed to top 14 carries in a game this season, while he and Derrick Henry continue to split the load. Henry toted it 19 times Monday night for 131 yards and a 72-yard score to kill the Colts with under a minute to go in the game. Murray will be a mid-range RB2 next week at the Browns.
Oct 17 - 12:08 AM

Marcus Mariota completed 23-of-32 passes for 306 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Titans' Week 6 win over the Colts on Monday night.

Mariota missed Week 5 with a hamstring injury but returned after the one-week absence. He looked very rusty early in the game and couldn't use his mobility at any point, but the Titans' top-notch offensive line protected him all night, allowing just one sack, which was technically a run for a loss of a yard by Mariota. Mariota got more of a feel as a passer as the game went on and hooked up deep with rookie WR Taywan Taylor for a 53-yard score on a busted coverage in the fourth quarter to break a 22-22 tie. As long as he avoided setbacks and can use the practice week to get closer to 100 percent, Mariota will be an elite QB1 option next week at Cleveland.
Oct 16 - 11:49 PM

Derrick Henry rushed 19 times for 131 yards and one touchdown in the Titans' 36-22, Week 6 win over the Colts on Monday night.

Henry had merely been grinding out yards and was simply trying to kill the clock late in the fourth quarter when he busted a 72-yard touchdown scamper with less than a minute to play, putting the Titans up by 13 and securing the second-half comeback win. Henry and DeMarco Murray appeared to be rotating series with Murray looking far less than 100 percent. Both scored touchdowns, and the Titans stood by their word of getting Henry more involved after getting just 10 total carries the previous two games combined. Murray is never going to get to full health if he keeps playing on a balky hammy, so that leaves Henry as a risky standalone RB3 each week. The Titans get the winless Browns on the road in Week 7.
