Titans RB Murray (knee) ruled out vs. Chiefs

Jan 4, 2018 - 6:44 PM Tennessee Titans running back DeMarco Murray has been ruled out of Saturday's wild-card game against the host Kansas City Chiefs, the team announced Thursday.

Second-year back Derrick Henry is expected to see a bigger workload in place of Murray, who sustained a slight tear in his MCL in a loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Dec. 24.

The 29-year-old Murray then sat out the regular-season finale against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Murray rushed for a career-low 659 yards this season and averaged just 3.6 yards per carry. He rushed for 1,287 yards and nine touchdowns with Tennessee in 2016.

Henry, who led the team with 744 yards rushing, made his second start of the season against Jacksonville and managed only 51 yards on 28 carries. He did, however, take a screen pass and rumble 66 yards for a touchdown.
