With DeMarco Murray out for Sunday’s game, the Titans needed another running back. So they promoted Khalfani Muhammad from the practice squad Friday.

The Titans waived cornerback Demontre Hurst in a corresponding move.

Tennessee made Muhammad a seventh-round pick out of the University of California this spring. The Titans waived him September 2 and re-signed him to the practice squad after he cleared waivers.

Muhammad will serve as the third back behind Derrick Henry and David Fluellen.

Hurst did not play in a game for the Titans.
