ESPN Titans reporter Cameron Wolfe predicts Tennessee will release DeMarco Murray this offseason.
It's a logical -- and expected -- move that will save the Titans $6.5 million against the cap in 2018. Murray was great in 2016 but battled injuries all of 2017, missed the playoffs, and turns 30 next week. Derrick Henry will then be freed up as the unquestioned lead back, while the Titans can add a third-down, pass-catching type to complement him under new OC Matt LaFleur. Feb 9 - 11:49 AM

DeMarco Murray "definitely" believes he is still a top-end running back.

"I am very confident in myself and I am excited," he said. "I am excited about the future, and my future. I know what kind of player I am." It would be surprising for him to say anything else, but the reality is Murray took a massive step back in his age-29 season even before being sidelined by a knee injury late in the year. The Titans can wipe all of Murray's $6.5 million salary off the cap by cutting him, making that the most likely outcome.
Jan 15 - 10:36 AM

Titans declared RB DeMarco Murray, QB Brandon Weeden, RB Khalfani Muhammad, DB Curtis Riley, LB Josh Carraway, OL Corey Levin and DE David King inactive for the Divisional Round against the Patriots.

Should the Titans spring the upset, Murray will be no better than 50-50 for the AFC Championship Game.
Jan 13 - 6:58 PM

ESPN's Cameron Wolfe believes there's a "decent chance" DeMarco Murray has played his final snap in a Titans uniform.

Already ruled out for the Divisional Round, Murray, who has a torn MCL, would be a long-shot for the AFC Championship Game even if the Titans sprang a seismic upset on Saturday night. One month shy of his 30th birthday, Murray slumped to a career-worst 3.58 yards per carry as he played injured in 2017. 23-year-old sophomore Derrick Henry has looked more than capable of taking over the Titans' workhorse role. If Murray is cut, his entire $6.5 million salary would come off the books, leaving behind no dead money.

DeMarco Murray (knee) is out for Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Patriots.

Derrick Henry amassed 191 yards and a touchdown on 23 touches against the Chiefs last Saturday, providing a blueprint for the Titans to have success. They'll need to control the ball and play defense while keeping Tom Brady and friends off the field if Tennessee wants to win. Murray has an MCL sprain.
Jan 10 - 2:48 PM

DeMarco Murray (knee) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

He's looking very doubtful at best for Saturday night's Divisional Round tilt against the Patriots. The Titans need to continue to ride Derrick Henry and keep the Patriots' offense off the field if they have a chance at the upset.
Jan 10 - 2:39 PM

DeMarco Murray (knee) remained sidelined at Tuesday's practice.

Murray is fully expected to remain sidelined for the Divisional Round against the Patriots. Even were Murray to suit up, ESPN's Cameron Wolfe believes it would be "Derrick Henry's show regardless."
Jan 9 - 4:23 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said DeMarco Murray (knee) is day-to-day.

Murray has not practiced since suffering a third-degree MCL tear in Week 16, but the Titans continue to hold out hope he will return this season. Perhaps he will if Tennessee surprisingly gets past the Patriots on Saturday, but it seems unlikely he will be ready to face New England. Even if he is, Derrick Henry will start and likely handle the bulk of the work.
Jan 7 - 5:52 PM

DeMarco Murray (knee) is inactive for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Chiefs.

Murray was ruled out early in the week. He's yet to practice since tearing his MCL and won't be a lock to return if the Titans advance to the Divisional Round. Also inactive for Tennessee are QB Brandon Weeden, DB Curtis Riley, OG Corey Levin, LB Nate Palmer, WR Harry Douglas, and LB Josh Carraway.
Jan 6 - 3:14 PM

DeMarco Murray (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's Wild Card matchup with the Chiefs.

Murray never looked likely to play this week, and it is unlikely he will be ready to go for the Divisional Round if the Titans are able to advance. Derrick Henry will once again carry the load with Murray sidelined.
Jan 4 - 12:54 PM

DeMarco Murray (knee) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Murray is looking questionable at best for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Chiefs. He has a sprained MCL. Derrick Henry should handle the load.
Jan 3 - 2:23 PM

DeMarco Murray (knee) was held out of Tuesday's practice.

The Titans will spend a few days pretending Murray might play through his torn MCL in the Wild Card round before ruling him out. Even after a disappointing Week 17, Derrick Henry will carry the mail and be a threat for a big day against the Chiefs.
Jan 2 - 4:24 PM

Titans declared RB DeMarco Murray, QB Brandon Weeden, DB Curtis Riley, LB Josh Carraway, LB Nate Palmer, OL Corey Levin, and WR Harry Douglas inactive for Week 17 against the Jaguars.

No surprises here. The Titans still have a shot to make the playoffs. If they do not, Murray will end his ugly year with 925 yards from scrimmage after totaling 1,664 in 2016. Murray will be an offseason release candidate.

DeMarco Murray (knee) has been ruled out for Week 17 against Jacksonville.

The Titans were holding out hope on Murray early in the week, but he was never going to play. Derrick Henry will start and have an everydown workload with Murray out, making him a strong DFS option. Dealing with a third-degree MCL tear, Murray isn't a lock to return for the Wild Card Round if Tennessee makes the playoffs.
Fri, Dec 29, 2017 01:06:00 PM

DeMarco Murray (knee) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

For whatever reason, the Titans are holding out hope Murray will play through a completely torn MCL. We are not counting on it. Perhaps we will get a better idea of Murray's Week 17 availability on Friday, but the team has hinted it could come down to a Sunday afternoon decision.
