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.

Taywan Taylor caught 4-of-9 targets for 56 yards in Saturday's preseason opener.

Taylor skying for a 42-yard catch early in the third quarter was easily the play of the game in an otherwise stunningly-dull affair. Taylor also committed a drop, but had the looks of a genuine playmaker as he ran with the Titans' backups against the Jets' reserves. The No. 72 overall pick of the draft can earn himself a role on offense this summer. He's an exciting own in Dynasty leagues.

ESPN's Cameron Wolfe reports "several Titans coaches and players believe" sophomore S Kevin Byard is "on his way to stardom."

Tennessee looks set to take another step forward this season, but their secondary will have to improve for that to happen. GM Jon Robinson did his best to add reinforcements over the offseason, signing CB Logan Ryan and S Johnathan Cyprien while drafting CB Adoree' Jackson in the first round, but Byard becoming a quality starter would be a big help. After finishing last season strong, it looks like the former third-rounder is well on his way.

Corey Davis (hamstring) said he's still week to week.

Davis has already been out for six days, and a return doesn't appear to be in sight. His goal remains to be ready for Week 1. But we've seen in the past that rookies who miss significant time in training camp tend to have slow starts to the season. Davis remains the favorite to open the year as the Titans' starting X receiver.

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.

Susie Adams Smith has put her 33 percent of the Titans up for sale.

It threatens to exacerbate the Titans' ownership issues. The team has been owned in three equal 33 percent shares since former owner Bud Adams' death in 2013. The league has insisted on a controlling owner, something Adams' heirs have been unable to figure out. Adams' daughter Amy Adams Strunk is the current figurehead. Susie's sale could have 33 percent of the team owned by an outsider.

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.

Marcus Mariota will play in the Titans' preseason opener Saturday night.

It is not a surprise considering Mariota has been a full-go throughout camp, but it is a great indication he is fully healed from his December leg break. Mariota likely will not play many snaps, but coach Mike Mularkey said he wants the quarterback "to get his feet wet a little bit." With several shiny new weapons in the passing game, Mariota carries high-end upside from his QB12 ADP.

ESPN Titans reporter Cameron Wolfe believes WR Tajae Sharpe (foot) is a candidate to start the season on reserve/PUP.

Sharpe remains out of practice and on the active/PUP list a couple weeks into camp. He apparently isn't nearing a return from foot surgery and is falling way behind. He's listed deep down the Titans' initial depth chart as a third-stringer. No matter what, Sharpe isn't going to have much of a role after flopping as a rookie.

Titans third-round WR Taywan Taylor is listed as a third-team wideout on Tennessee's initial unofficial depth chart.

Rishard Matthews and first-rounder Corey Davis are listed as the starters, with Eric Decker and Tre McBride (surprisingly) with the twos. Taylor has seen reps with the ones in camp, working out of the slot. But if everyone stays healthy, it's hard to see Taylor making much of a year-one impact after the signing of Decker.
Aug 7 - 6:13 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said first-round WR Corey Davis (hamstring) will be out at least a week.

Davis had an MRI on his injured hamstring after going down in Thursday's practice. It sounds like he avoided structural damage, but he's going to miss valuable training camp time. Davis was immediately inserted as the starting X receiver prior to his injury. The Titans are likely targeting a return before their third preseason game.
Aug 4 - 6:41 PM

ESPN Titans reporter Cameron Wolfe believes it's "not unrealistic" that Derrick Henry "could come close" to doubling his total yards from 2016 to 2017.

As a rookie, Henry rushed 110 times for 490 yards and five touchdowns, adding 13 catches for 137 yards. Henry has reportedly looked even better this year, and the Titans have been getting him more pass-game looks and working both Henry and DeMarco Murray into the backfield at the same time. In order for Henry to double his yards, he'd need to push for around 200 touches. That seems hard to do if Murray stays healthy and the Titans put more on Marcus Mariota's plate. Henry is an elite No. 2 back and possibly the top "handcuff" to own in fantasy. He carries some RB3/4 standalone appeal.

Aug 4 - 9:14 AM

DeMarco Murray is day to day with a hamstring "tweak."

The Titans insist the issue is "not serious." We typically wait three days with camp injuries, but any hamstring issue is likely to linger longer than three days. It's also notable anytime Murray suffers an injury, even though he's displayed impressive durability the past three seasons. Murray wore down as he battled various minor ailments in the second half of 2016. This will be his age-29 season. Derrick Henry waits in the wings.
Aug 3 - 1:15 PM

Titans first-round WR Corey Davis is headed for an MRI on his injured hamstring.

Reporter Paul Kuharsky said Davis is "going to miss time." Davis pulled up in Thursday's practice before walking gingerly off the field with trainers. Coach Mike Mularkey said he was not sure about the severity of the injury, but the MRI raises some concerns. If Davis is forced to miss time, fellow rookie Taywan Taylor would likely see more snaps with the first-team offense.
Aug 3 - 12:42 PM

Eric Decker "continues to look good" in Titans training camp.

In-house writer Jim Wyatt also emphasized Decker's expected role in the red zone. Now on the wrong side of 30, Decker is coming off serious hip and shoulder operations, but appears to be 100 percent healthy. He'll be a WR3 with WR2 upside in Tennessee.
