2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
When Felix Jones went down with an ankle injury in Week 6, Murray took over the starting role and proved the Cowboys made the correct decision by drafting him in the 3rd round of the 2011 draft. Murray ran wild over the St. Louis Rams in Week 7 with 25 rushes for 253 yards and a score. He put together a string of solid performances until suffering a broken ankle in Week 14 that ended his season. Murray possesses outstanding speed, enough agility to make tacklers miss on the second level and enough strength to run over defenders when he has a head of steam. Unfortunately, he also canít stay healthy making him a risky proposition as a RB1 in 2012. One thing is for certain, head coach Jason Garrett will give him the ball enough to establish himself as an upper tier running back. In the seven games that he was the Cowboys primary back, Murray accumulated 155 touches. His talent and productivity when he played last season coupled with the Cowboys strong offense basically ensure that some owner in your league will draft him as their RB1 and take on that risk. You need to decide if that owner is going to be you.

News From The Past 90 Days
Goal-line work in Derrick Henry's future?     -- Mon Nov 28 7:40 pm --

DeMarco Murray averaging less than 3.3 YPC over last two weeks
Mike Mularkey said the Titans have discussed using Derrick Henry more in short-yardage situations. (Jim Wyatt on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: It was thought the 247-pound Henry was going to steal at least some of the goal-line carries when he was drafted and again when he impressed in the preseason, but Tennessee opted to give DeMarco Murray a league-high 274 touches through the first 12 weeks of the season. Now it appears the Titans, at the very least, may want to take away the potential high-impact touches from Murray. Look for Henry to steal at least 8-10 touches from Murray moving forward, putting him on the flex radar.
DeMarco Murray back at practice Thursday     -- Thu Nov 17 4:25 pm --

Sat out Wednesday's session
DeMarco Murray back on practice field (Thursday) for Titans. (Jim Wyatt on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Murray has routinely been getting Wednesdays off lately, so Tennessee is just keeping the 28-year-old's legs as fresh as possible. He has scored a rushing touchdown in five straight games and seems like a pretty good bet to finish as a top-five back again this week versus the Indianapolis Colts.
DeMarco Murray held out of practice     -- Wed Nov 16 6:00 pm --

Team playing it safe with star running back
Murray (toe) was held out of practice Wednesday for precautionary reasons, Jim Wyatt of titansonline.com reports. (CBSSports.com)

FF Today's Take: Tennessee is giving DeMarco Murray a well earned day of rest after he did it all against the Packers in Week 10. Look for him to return to practice Thursday as the team prepares for a key divisional match up against the Colts this week.
Injury DeMarco Murray good to go     -- Sun Nov 6 8:15 am --

Toe injury shouldn't keep Murray off the field
Titans RB DeMarco Murray is good to go vs. Chargers despite foot injury that limited some practice time this week, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Murray injured his toe in last week's game but should suit up an play today against the Chargers after practicing Thursday and Friday. There's some concern that Derrick Henry could eat into Murray's workload this week after the rookie posted 97 total yards and a TD against the Jaguars.
Injury Delanie Walker inactive     -- Sun Sep 25 11:30 am --

Hamstring injury
Titans Pro Bowl tight end Delanie Walker will not play in Sundayís game vs. the Raiders. Walker missed two days of practice this week with a hamstring injury, and the team was waiting until Sunday morning to make a final call after listing him as questionable. (ProFootballTalk)

FF Today's Take: It will be hard to trust QB Marcus Mariota without one of his top weapons. Rookie WR Tajae Sharpe should see an increase in targets. Expect more usage out of running backs DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry.
