DeMarco Murray, Delanie Walker expected to play Sunday

The Titans will be in Cleveland on Sunday afternoon to try to bump their record to 4-3 before their bye week and it looks like they’ll have the help of a couple of offensive players listed as questionable for the game.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that running back DeMarco Murray and tight end Delanie Walker are both expected to be in the lineup for Tennessee.

Murray missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday due to a hamstring injury that’s bothered him intermittently since the summer. He returned for a limited workout on Friday and it seems the team will use him along with Derrick Henry rather than give him the extended break that would come with the bye in Week Eight.

Walker was a late addition to the injury report. He was limited on Thursday with a calf injury and then sat out entirely on Friday, casting doubt on his ability to play. Rookie Jonnu Smith would move up in the pecking order if Walker’s playing time is impacted by the injury.

  1. And Murray will aggravate his hamstring in a meaningless game and the coaches will throw up their hands saying he wasn’t at risk for aggravating his injury.

  2. This makes no sense for Murray to play. If the hamstring was enough to keep him out of practice all week and given they will certainly defeat Cleveland and have a comparable backup in Derrick Henry, just rest him this week and you have a bye the following week. That way you can have him healthy. This reads to me of Murray being afraid of losing his starting role to Henry as he may do well against a struggling Browns defense.
