Murray (hamstring) is listed as questionable for the Titans' Week 7 matchup Sunday against the Browns, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
For the first time all week, Murray was cleared to practice Friday, albeit in a limited capacity. It nonetheless qualifies as a positive step forward for the running back, but his status for the weekend looks like it could come down to a game-time decision, with Wyatt relaying that Murray will warm up shortly before the contest before his availability is determined. Murray finished with 12 carries for 40 yards and a touchdown and added 47 receiving yards on four catches in the Titans' victory over the Colts on Monday night, but ceded a good deal of snaps in the second half to Derrick Henry, who actually outpaced Murray in touches, 20-16. The backfield timeshare has been a staple of the Titans' offensive game plan all season, and head coach Mike Mularkey said Wednesday that he has no plans of deviating from that two-pronged approach, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports. As such, Murray's ceiling in DFS contests is somewhat limited, and for this week in particular, he may not make for as trustworthy of an option in season-long leagues either while he contends with the injury. Even if Murray looks spry enough in warmups to give it a go Sunday, it wouldn't be surprising if the timeshare tilted in Henry's favor once again to limit the wear and tear on Murray.

Murray (hamstring) wasn't spotted on the field during Thursday's practice, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
For the second straight day, it appears Murray will go down as a nonparticipant in practice, which calls into question his availability for Sunday's game against the Browns. Tennessee head coach Mike Mularkey has previously labeled Murray as day-to-day, and while the veteran's injury isn't considered major, it's uncertain if he'll be able to demonstrate enough improvement in time for the Week 7 matchup in what will be a quick turnaround from the Titans' win over the Colts on Monday night. Murray's participation in practice Friday -- or lack thereof -- will be most telling for his status heading into Sunday's contest. Even if Murray is able to shake off the injury and play this week, he'll still be destined to split carries with Derrick Henry.

Murray (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Per coach Mike Mularkey, Murray is day-to-day, though on Tuesday there was no mention of an injury to the veteran back when Mularkey suggested that he was inclined to continue to rotate Murray and Derrick Henry in the Titans' backfield going forward. In Week 6's 36-22 win over the Colts, Murray logged 38 out of a possible 70 snaps on offense, while rushing 12 times for 40 yards and a TD and catching four passes for 47 yards. Meanwhile, Henry was on the field for 40 snaps, carrying 19 times for 131 yards, including a 72-yard TD late in the game.

Titans head coach Mike Mularkey said Tuesday that he expects Murray and Derrick Henry to continue splitting reps out of the backfield, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
While Murray retains the starting designation and should be in line to handle the larger portion of touches of the two backs, Mularkey noted that Henry is beginning to establish himself as the Titans' closer in the backfield. Because Murray takes on a significant workload early in contests, Mularkey relayed that Henry is usually a "little fresher from not taking a lot of snaps" in the second half, making it ideal for Murray to rest more frequently in those scenarios. Due to Murray's superior pass-catching skills, he would likely see a steady diet of snaps in the second halves of games when the Titans are playing from behind, but Henry could pick up more carries of the two when the team is maintaining a lead.

Murray rushed 12 times for 40 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 36-22 win over the Colts. He also caught all four of his targets for 47 yards.
EDGE Analysis
Murray gave the Titans the lead with a three-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter. While that marked his second score of the season, Murray's 16 touches were his second most thus far, trailing only Week 5's 18. That being said, Murray was handed seven fewer carries than teammate Derrick Henry, who finished with 131 yards and a touchdown of his own. Sporting two solid options, the Titans' share of backfield touches should be interesting to monitor in the coming weeks, starting this Sunday against the Browns.

Murray rushed 14 times for 58 yards and added four catches on five targets for 11 yards while losing a fumble in Sunday's 16-10 loss to the Dolphins.
EDGE Analysis
Murray struggled to get much going on the ground with Miami keying on him over the Matt Cassel-led passing game. Outside of a 75-yard touchdown run against Seattle in Week 3, Murray's rushed for just 198 yards on 55 other carries for an average of 3.6 yards per attempt. Despite his early struggles, the 29-year-old running back remains the clear starter over Derrick Henry, who got only four touches in this one.

Murray rushed for 31 yards on seven carries and caught two passes for four yards in Sunday's 57-14 loss to Houston.
EDGE Analysis
Murray finally got into a groove last week with 120 total yards and a score, but was unable to keep it going in Week 4. In fairness, it's hard for Tennessee to keep its smash-mouth style when trailing by multiple scores for most of the game. Look for Tennessee to lean especially heavy on Murray and Derrick Henry should Marcus Mariota miss next week's matchup against Miami after suffering a hamstring injury in the third quarter on Sunday.

Murray (hamstring) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Murray didn't practice last Wednesday or Thursday, but he looked healthy enough when he ran for a 75-yard touchdown in a 33-27 win over the Seahawks. He apparently came out of the game without any setbacks, so he should be fine to handle his usual leading role Sunday in Houston. Backfield mate Derrick Henry (thigh) was also a full practice participant Wednesday.

Murray (hamstring) rushed 14 times for 115 yards and a touchdown and caught one of his two targets for five yards during Sunday's 33-27 win over Seattle.
EDGE Analysis
Not only was Murray on the injury report all week, he didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday before being a limited participant Friday. It clearly didn't impact his on-field performance, though. Additionally, backfield mate Derrick Henry is now dealing with a bruised thigh that he sustained Sunday. Murray's 75-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter put Tennessee ahead 30-14 and was a back-breaking score for the Seahawks. After two poor fantasy showings to start the season, Murray's huge game against Seattle was a welcomed reassurance for fantasy owners.

Murray (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.
EDGE Analysis
Murray is out there if you need him Sunday, but it remains to be seen if he'll handle his usual workload, with Derrick Henry on hand, healthy and coming off a strong effort in Week 2. With that in mind, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com indicates that while Murray is expected to start at running back for the Titans on Sunday, there "should still be a lot of Henry" on tap in Week 3.
