Tennessee Titans running back DeMarco Murray tore his MCL, but was not placed on the injured reserve. He did not practice on Wednesday and the team declared Murray OUT for Saturday’s game against the New England Patriots, per Titans Online’s Jim Wyatt.

Murray led the Titans with 925 yards from scrimmage in 2017, but back-up Derrick Henry has proven more than capable in his stead. Henry gained 191 yards from scrimmage and 2 touchdowns against the Kansas City Chiefs in the wild card round as the 6’3, 250 pound bruiser wore down the opposing defense.

Without Murray, Henry played almost every single snap and will be the Titans’ workhorse against the Patriots. Henry ranked second on the Titans with 880 yards from scrimmage in the 2017 regular season.

We will have the full injury report later today.
