Titans coach Mike Mularkey began fielding questions about Derrick Henry potentially overtaking DeMarco Murray from the moment the former Alabama back was taken in the second round a year and a half ago. Mularkey has been steadfast in saying Murray is the starter. And he has been.
But now Murray is dealing with a tight hamstring that caused him to miss the fourth quarter Sunday. It’s his second hamstring injury in as many months.
The story eluded the team could use both styles of backs - Henry the physical runner and Murray, who is more about vision and pass catching. If anything, it could mean less of a workload going forward if Henry continues to impress.
