Murray may undergo offseason surgery on the torn plantar plate in his right foot, The Tennessean reports. "It's just all about rest, and if it feels good after some time, then I think we'll skip the surgery," Murray said Monday. "But if not, I think that's something that [Titans director of sports medicine] Todd [Toriscelli] and those guys will have to decide, and we'll come up with a game plan. It just all depends on how I feel after a couple weeks."

EDGE Analysis

Murray was running roughshod over the league during the first two months of the season, reaching the century mark on the ground four times in the first eight games. In the final outing of that run, though, he injured his foot and was variously listed with either foot or toe ailments for the remainder of the campaign. With regard to that part of the body, the plantar plate is a ligament structure that stabilizes toes in one's feet, hence the fluctuation between foot and toe on those injury reports. Once the prescribed period of rest is complete, it appears as if Murray and the Titans will come to a conclusion regarding the lingering issue, despite head coach Mike Mularkey not knowing a procedure was potentially on the table as of Monday.

Murray rushed 11 times for 21 yards, and caught his lone target for minus-2 yards in Sunday's 24-17 win over Houston.

EDGE Analysis

After tying his season-low with 42 rushing yards last week, Murray halved that number in the finale. He was significantly outplayed by rookie backup Derrick Henry, who managed 65 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries. Murray had a fantastic first season with the Titans despite the unimpressive finish, rushing 293 times for 1,287 yards and nine touchdowns.

Murray rushed 14 times for 42 yards, and added two catches for 18 yards on four targets in Saturday's 38-17 loss to Jacksonville.

EDGE Analysis

Murray tied his season low in rushing yards while averaging just 3.0 yards per carry. He still got the lion's share of carries despite the poor performance, with backup Derrick Henry rushing just four times for 13 yards. Quarterback Marcus Mariota will be out for the season finale after breaking his fibula late in the third quarter, so expect the Texans to sell out to stop Murray with the AFC South crown potentially on the line.

Murray rushed 18 times for 89 yards, and added five catches for 52 yards on six targets Sunday against the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Murray got the majority of the work on the ground, but backup Derrick Henry scored both of Tennessee's touchdowns. The lack of goal line production didn't negatively impact Murray's production too much, as he still topped 80 rushing yards for the ninth time in 14 games. He's averaging over 4.5 yards per carry for the third time in four seasons.

Murray rushed 21 times for 92 yards and a touchdown, but failed to catch either of his two targets in Sunday's 13-10 win over the Broncos. He also threw an incompletion on a trick play.

EDGE Analysis

Murray received half of the Titans' 42 rushing attempts, as they jumped out to a 13-0 lead and mostly kept the ball on the ground from there. He was significantly more effective than backup Derrick Henry (12 carries for 42 yards), and looked much more spry after struggling in his last two games prior to the Week 13 bye. With 1,043 yards and eight touchdowns this season, Murray has reestablished himself as one of the league's premier rushing threats following a down year in Philadelphia.

Head coach Mike Mularkey said Monday that Murray's sore toe improved during the Titans' bye week, Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Murray's toe injury did not prevent him from playing in the Titans' last game in Week 12, but it may have played a role in him totaling just 43 yards in 17 carries in the contest. Murray is presumably healthier now after a week off, and Mularkey indicated he will continue seeing the bulk of the work in the Titans' backfield despite the recent success of rookie running back Derrick Henry.

Murray rushed 17 times for 43 yards, and hauled in all five of his targets for 41 more in Sunday's 27-21 win over the Bears,

EDGE Analysis

Murray was outplayed on the ground by backup Derrick Henry, who managed 60 yards and a touchdown on his eight carries. The 28-year-old veteran's 43 rushing yards were just one better than his Week 1 season low, but he once again salvaged a respectable all-around game by being effective as a receiver out of the backfield. While there's no doubt Murray's 229 carries through 12 weeks have started to take a toll on his body, he'll get a much-needed chance to rest up with the Titans on bye in Week 13.

Murray (foot/toe) practiced fully Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Murray was held out of practice Wednesday presumably for maintenance reasons, but his return to a full session Thursday confirms the availability of the Titans' No. 1 running back for Sunday's contest against the Bears.

Murray (toe) returned to practice Thursday, Jim Wyatt of titansonline.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

We'll circle back later Thursday to see how the Titans classify Murray's level of participation, but his return to practice, in any capacity, bodes well for his availability for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Murray (foot) did not practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Murray sat out practice the last two Wednesdays before returning to full sessions Thursday and being removed from the Titans' injury report Friday. With no setbacks reported with his foot/toe issue, expect that pattern to be repeated this week in advance of Sunday's game against the Bears.
