Murray (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's playoff game against the Chiefs, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
With Murray still sidelined, Derrick Henry will continue to lead the Titans backfield this weekend. In the team's regular-season finale, Henry logged a season-high 28 carries for 51 yards and added a 66-yard TD catch. Looking ahead, back-to-back missed games suggest that Murray would be no lock to play in the divisional-round of the playoffs, should Tennessee triumph Saturday. The running back suffered an MCL injury during Week 16's loss to the Rams.

Murray (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Murray was held out of practice for a second consecutive day as he continues to recover from the third-degree tear of his MCL, which he suffered in Week 16 against the Rams. Murray's status for Saturday's wild-card matchup against the Chiefs remains up in the air as his absence from practice continues, while Derrick Henry would be in line to serve as the primary option out of the Titans' backfield if Murray is ultimately held out.

Murray (knee) didn't practice Tuesday, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports.
EDGE Analysis
Although he hasn't taken the practice field since suffering a third-degree tear of his MCL in Week 16, Murray remains a candidate to play in Saturday's wild-card game at Kansas City, per head coach Mike Mularkey. It should be noted Mularkey said the same thing last week, so the statement may be one of gamesmanship than actual confidence that the veteran running back will play this weekend. If he's unable to get the all-clear, Murray would yield the backfield yet again to second-year RB Derrick Henry, who reeled off 117 yards from scrimmage in the regular-season finale.

Murray (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
With Murray out Sunday, Derrick Henry is slated to handle the heavy lifting in the Jaguars' Week 17 backfield, with David Fluellen in reserve. The Titans may also elect to add further running back depth by promoting Khalfani Muhammad from the team's practice squad.

Murray (knee) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
With regard to the running back's status for Sunday's game against the Jaguars as it relates the the Titans' Week 17 backfield, Wolfe added "expect the Derrick Henry show this week." For his part, coach Mike Mularkey called Murray "day to day" earlier this week, while suggesting that the running back was trending toward being a game-time decision this weekend. If Murray is able to tough things out Sunday, he could be used in a limited role, but if he ends up inactive, David Fluellen would be in line for added work behind Henry in Week 17.

Murray (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Wyatt adds that coach Mike Mularkey noted Wednesday that Murray is likely to be a game-time decision for Sunday's 4:25 ET kickoff against the 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. "That's not what I was told. I'll leave it at that," said Mularkey. In any case, Murray's Week 17 status is uncertain and if he is out Sunday, or limited at all, Derrick Henry would be in line for an expanded workload.

The Titans revealed that Murray (knee) has a third-degree MCL tear, though the running back is still optimistic he can play Sunday against the Jaguars, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
EDGE Analysis
It isn't clear if this injury is in addition to Murray's LCL sprain that was first reported. Regardless, Murray is considered day-to-day and still believed to have a chance at suiting up for Sunday's season finale.

Coach Mike Mularkey indicated Tuesday that Murray (knee) is day-to-day and he hasn't ruled the tailback out for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Jaguars, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Murray was trending toward a DNP following the news that he suffered an LCL sprain, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. A big intradivision matchup with playoff implications remains ahead against the Jaguars, making Murray's status for the contest even more important for Tennessee. If he's ultimately unable to dress for the tilt, expect second-year tailback Derrick Henry to carry a heavy workload Sunday.

Murray (knee) isn't expected to play Week 17 against the Jaguars, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
As the minutes wound down on Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Rams, Murray required assistance from the training staff to reach the sideline at the end of a two-yard run, his 15th and final one of the day. The initial examination revealed an apparent sprain of his LCL, per Adam Schefter of ESPN, but an MRI on Monday will reveal the extent of the damage. Because the Titans' thought process has reached the point of holding Murray out of the regular-season finale, the ground game may be entirely reliant on second-year running back Derrick Henry on Sunday.

An initial exam on Murray's knee revealed an LCL sprain, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
EDGE Analysis
Murray -- who suffered the injury in Sunday's loss to the Rams -- has an MRI on tap Monday to confirm the diagnosis, but at this stage it looks like he'll probably be out next weekend, which would set the stage for Derrick Henry to head the Titans' rushing attack in the team's regular-season finale against the Jaguars.
