Robinson, speaking at the NFL Combine last month, said he was encouraged by what he saw from Henry not only in the last month, but during the entire season. Murray suffered a knee injury in the closing minutes of the team’s loss against the Los Angeles Rams and was helped off the field by trainers.

Murray said the injury to his right ring finger happened in Week 2 of last season. He opted to have the surgery now so he’d have time to recover.

“It is just an old lingering injury from last year,” Murray said. “I thought it would heal, but it didn’t heal over the offseason as I expected. It is nothing serious. I’m going to let it heal and get ready for camp.”

Titans general manager Jon Robinson negotiated the trade to cheap Tennessee Titans jerseys land Murray, who spent one season with the Eagles. The trade might’ve never gotten off the ground without Murray making it known to his agent, Nashville’s Bill Johnson, and the Titans, he wanted to play in Tennessee.

Murray wasn’t the first option on the play, but after Mariota surveyed the field he found Murray available, to his left, so he tossed it to him.

Murray caught the ball at the four, and squeezed by two Bengals defenders before diving toward the end zone, where Bengals linebacker Vincent Rey dove at him. Murray stretched the football out, and broke the plane.

Henry led the Titans with 744 yards and five touchdowns on 176 carries in 2017. The former Heisman Trophy winner at the University of Alabama also caught 11 passes for 136 yards and a touchdown. Henry made some big plays down the stretch, and he turned in a 156-yard rushing performance in a playoff win at Kansas City.

Murray missed both of the team’s playoff games with a knee injury he suffered against the Rams on December 24. It’s an injury that also kept him out of the regular season finale. Until then, Murray hadn’t missed a game since joining the Titans prior to the 2016 season.

Murray said he was hoping to play again this season. But New England’s 35-14 win on Saturday night ended Tennessee’s season. Murray said he doesn’t need surgery at this point.

Mularkey said he had no doubts about Murray’s availability on Sunday, despite the fact Murray missed practices on Wednesday and Thursday. Early in the game at Nissan Stadium, Henry suffered a thigh bruise as well.

Murray said he envisioned returning to the team in a tandem with Henry in 2018, but “we’ll see how things unfold and go from there.” He complimented Henry’s play down the stretch, when he started the final three games in his place.

Murray said he plans to attack the offseason like he’s done in years past. He knows there’s room for improvement in the running game moving forward following a year when the Titans finished 15th in the NFL in rushing. But Murray said he likes the direction of the team.
