DeMarco Murray limited jersey
Titans running back DeMarco Murray saw his workload increase on the practice field on Thursday, and he appears to be improving.
With 17 carries for 123 yards and a touchdown, DeMarco Murray notched his 26th career 100-yard rushing game (including one playoff game) and his fifth such performance with the Titans. He became the first cheap Titans jerseys player to rush for at least 100 yards five times in a season since Chris Johnson in 2012.
Murray suffered a toe injury in last Thursday’s game against the Jaguars and he was limited in practice on Wednesday. Murray was listed as a full participant in Thursday’s practice on the official injury report.
“Much better today on his part,’’ Titans coach Mike Mularkey said of Murray, “and probably a little more (work) tomorrow.”
Murray has 756 yards and six touchdowns at the halfway point of the season. He’s currently second in the league in rushing yards.
At the season’s halfway point, Murray has 756 yards and six touchdowns on the ground, and 28 catches for 197 yards and two more scored. He’s eclipsed the 100-yard mark in four of the last six games, and he’s on pace to finish with 1,512 rushing yards.
Other candidates for Week 8 NFL action include Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart, who rushed for 95 yards on 25 carries (3.8 avg.) and 2 touchdowns in a 30-20 win over the Arizona Cardinals, and Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard, who ran for 153 yards and a touchdown in a 20-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

Kansas City’s Alex Smith, Cincinnati’s Andy Dalton and San Diego’s Philip Rivers are the three AFC quarterbacks. A handful of other quarterbacks opted not to play in the game, for one reason or another. Mariota gets no Pro Bowl credit despite the fact he would’ve been here.
Rookie Derrick Henry saw his workload increase against the Jaguars. Henry rushed for 60 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries against Jacksonville. In the event Murray is slowed on Sunday, Titans offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie said the team is confident in the former Heisman Trophy winner from Alabama.
“Derrick was good for us on Thursday, and he’s been good for us all year,’’ Robiskie said. “He is another guy in that category that’s been real, real patient and when opportunities come up for him (he’ll get a chance). “The good thing about it is we have Derrick, we have DeMarco. We have a group of guys we think are weapons and it’s good to have them.
“It’s good that if DeMarco comes out and says, ‘I need some Gatorade’ then Derrick can come in and do what he did. The good thing is we have two guys who can get it done and we don’t have to change our game plan.”

A good deal of the buzz surrounding the Titans receiving corps this offseason can be traced back to rookie Tajae Sharpe, who earned first-team reps in OTAs and minicamp, and plenty of praise.
Somewhat. There’s still some in that game—you saw a ball sail behind him out of bounds. It looks like Marcus (Mariota) was off of his throw, and really it was that we were two yards deep. If we’re right on the mark, that ball’s going to hit Tajae (Sharpe) right in the face. Those are things that, as a young player, he’s got to continue work at. It’s important to him. It’s really important to him. They’ll understand eventually that that’s where the ball’s going to be, and they’ll catch a whole lot more if they are that way. That’s not just him.
