Murray made his preseason debut Sunday against the Bears, taking six carries for 16 yards and hauling his his only target for minus-three yards.
EDGE Analysis
A hamstring injury ailed Murray for the majority of training camp and the first half of the Titans' preseason schedule, but he was finally able to suit up and contribute Sunday. Foretelling his upcoming role, he handled all the running back reps on the offense's first three drives, none of which yielded points while netting 31 total yards. With game reps now under his belt, Murray will almost assuredly log a DNP in Thursday's exhibition finale with a Week 1 appearance in mind.

Coach Mike Mularkey has yet to commit to Murray playing in Sunday's preseason game against the Bears, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Murray's status for the contest is set to be discussed Saturday, but at this stage if the veteran back sits, it would presumably be a precautionary measure geared toward not putting Murray in a position to aggravate the hamstring issue that previously slowed him. Per Mularkey, via Jason Wolf of the Tennessean, bruising back Derrick Henry was "phenomenal" while working with the first team in Murray's absence, but Murray nonetheless remains slated to retain his role as the team's lead back.

Murray and the rest of the starting offense are expected to play at least the first half of Sunday's preseason contest against the Bears, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
The Titans haven't come close to trotting out their optimal offense this preseason due to an array of injuries, which includes a hamstring issue that has kept Murray on the pine for both exhibitions to date. With Murray back in the fold, his presence will likely reduce Derrick Henry's relevance within the first-team offense after racking up 24 carries and four receptions in the first two preseason games. When running on all cylinders, Murray is expected to handle the majority of the backfield reps yet again in 2017.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey expects Murray to play in Saturday's exhibition against Carolina, though a final decision hasn't been made, ESPN.com's Cameron Wolfe reports.
EDGE Analysis
Murray rejoined his teammates Monday after missing more than a week of practice and sitting out the preseason opener. While there probably wouldn't be any question if this were a regular-season game, the Titans might opt to take a cautious approach and hold their lead back out until the third week of the exhibition schedule. Murray doesn't have much of anything left to prove, but there's no denying that Derrick Henry is among the most talented backups in the league. Coming off a rookie season in which he averaged 4.4 yards per carry, the Heisman winner has utilized training camp to make a strong push for a larger share of the workload in his sophomore campaign.

Murray worked extensively at Titans' practice Monday, Jim Wyatt of of TitansOnline reports.
EDGE Analysis
It is considered his biggest step made in his return from a hamstring injury, so owners can begin to breathe easy. Hamstrings can be delicate and lead to lingering issues, so the Titans have been cautious with their starting running back during training camp. While Murray has returned to work with the first-team, it should be noted his backup Derrick Henry has been impressive during his time filling in. Thus, he makes for a good handcuff candidate given Murray's injury history.

Head coach Mike Mularkey confirmed Sunday that Murray (hamstring) will practice this week and "do more than he did last week," Cameron Wolfe of ESPN reports.
EDGE Analysis
Murray has missed over a week's worth of practice after being ruled day-to-day with a hamstring issue, but it looks like the time off has allowed the tailback to make a full recovery. Look for Murray to be back to work at practice on Monday, as he'll resume work as the Titan's top running back.

Coach Mike Mularkey relayed Thursday that Murray (hamstring) is expected to return to practice Monday, the Tennessean reports.
EDGE Analysis
Murray's absence from the field Thursday marked his eighth consecutive missed practice. While he won't play in the Saturday's preseason opener Saturday against the Jets, it appears as though the return of the Titans' top back is on the horizon.

Murray (hamstring) has been ruled out for Saturday's preseason opener against the Jets, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN reports.
EDGE Analysis
It would have been more surprising had Murray actually suited up for the contest, as he has been sidelined for almost a week while nursing a strained hamstring. The main concern for the Titans is ensuring their starting running back's health as training camp progresses. Backup Derrick Henry has been working with the first-team while Murray has been sidelined, and figures to get those reps in his place Saturday. The veteran back suited up for practice Monday, but only participated in stretches and half-speed reps. He should be considered day-to-day going forward.

Murray (hamstring) remains day-to-day, Jason Wolf of the Tennessean reports.
EDGE Analysis
Murray has been sidelined for five consecutive practices due to a hamstring injury. The veteran running back was in full uniform Monday, but only participated in stretches and half-speed reps. Hamstrings can be a delicate issue, so the team is presumably being cautious in order to avoid a lingering issue going forward. As expected, Derrick Henry has been working with the first-team in Murray's absence.

Murray is dealing with a hamstring issue,Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
There's been nothing to suggest that Murray's hamstring woes are serious, but in his absence from practice, added reps are available for not only top backup Derrick Henry, but alsoRB3 candidates Khalfani Muhammad and David Fluellen.
