Should he be unable to go next Sunday, it'll be Henry getting the lion's share of carries when the Titans close out the season against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Meanwhile, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean relays that Mularkey won't confirm reports that Murray is dealing with a third-degree tear of his MCL.
However, the Titans may have suffered another key loss with the knee injury to running back DeMarco Murray.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Tennessee Titans are holding out some hope to have DeMarco Murray in a limited role Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
"I'm not going to rule him out just yet", Mularkey said. "So I'd say he is day-to-day right now, and just hope for the best".
What we do know is that the Titans are now the No. 6 seed and will get into the playoffs with a win. Especially when they have such a formidable backup in second-year running back Derrick Henry. Henry is averaging 4.7 yards per attempt. He's totaled 925 yards and seven touchdowns so far and will continue to be an important player for the Titans, should they advance to postseason play. That's probably even worse news than Murray's injury.
