    With Murray's hamstring injury lingering over the past month, I'm wondering.. how many games do you anticipate him missing this season? Over or under 4 games


    I will go with the under here.

    After looking at his injury history, Murray has dealt with some injuries but has also played through some serious ones as well. In 2014 he played through a broken hand to finish the last two games of the season. I've thought Murray to be injury prone, but for a starting RB who's in his 8th year in the league he hasn't missed much time.

    I bet Mularkey rides the Henry train this week against Seattle and Titans cruise to victory. Henry rushes for 150+ yards with multiple touchdowns. I'm excited for Henry to be the starting tailback for this team, but as long as Murray is on the roster he will be the starter. Even though it seems to be trending towards Henry and less of Murray, I still see Murray still as a top 10 rusher in yards and yards per carry this season. He'll come back stronger after missing a couple games, pick up where he left off last season and the Titans O-Line will get back to dominating.

    That is my sunshine pumping, optimistic take. What is yours?

    Henry looked good, hope it continues. With that, no need to rush back but I bet he'll want to return.
    I say 4 is right on but he will have a couple more of limited carries (less than 10).

    I wouldn't be surprised if Murray sits vs Seattle

    I would love to see Murray get 5 to 7 carries. Just enough to give Henry a breather.

    Couldn't fluellen just run for those 15 yards? No need to further injure Murray and his 3 yard avg so far doesn't seem out of fluellen's reach.

    Let's give Murray some rest and make sure he's ready for the playoff push later in the season.

    Murray doesn't look healthy...He's a completely different looking back, and he could probably use the rest etc. Fluellen and Fowler are capable of giving him rest for now.
