Titans will have both DeMarco Murray, Henry against Packers (Yahoo Sports)



NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Titans will have a full complement of running backs Sunday against the Green Bay Packers with both DeMarco Murray and rookie Derrick Henry practicing fully Friday.

Murray, the NFL’s second-leading rusher, sat out Wednesday to rest his sore toe and was limited Thursday. Henry, the Heisman Trophy winner, strained a calf muscle in pregame warmups last week in San Diego and had not practiced either Wednesday or Thursday.

”I’m ready and I feel good,” Henry said. ”I’m very encouraged. I went out there and put a sleeve on it, and it didn’t hurt at all. It feels good and I’m ready to go. I’m glad I got to practice today and get back into the roll of things.”

Coach Mike Mularkey was encouraged about Henry being able to return so quickly.

”He’s a tough guy and I’m very encouraged by it, and I think it’s good for our football team,” Mularkey said.

Right tackle Jack Conklin, limited earlier in the week with a right elbow injury, also practiced fully Friday.

The Titans (4-5) also expect to have guard Quinton Spain (knee), tight end Delanie Walker (groin) and safety Rashad Johnson (neck) against the Packers (4-4).

Only rookie linebacker Aaron Wallace, who has been nursing a sprained shoulder, is questionable.
