Tennessee Titans running back DeMarco Murray has been ruled out for this weekend's AFC divisional round game versus the New England Patriots, ESPN reported on Wednesday.
Murray, the team's starting running back during the regular season, is dealing with an MCL tear he sustained two weeks ago. It's an injury that can take from two to six weeks to heal.
The 29-year-old Murray sat out the Titans' 22-21 road victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday in a wild-card game. The win advanced Tennessee into the next round against the New England Patriots on Saturday in Foxborough, Mass.
Without Murray against the Chiefs, Derrick Henry seized the opportunity and stepped up his game.
Henry ran for 156 yards and a touchdown, including a 35-yard touchdown jaunt in the fourth quarter.
In Henry's second straight start in place of Murray, he averaged 6.8 yards per carry against Kansas City.
Henry ran for 744 yards on 176 carries with five touchdowns during the regular season in 2017. Murray rushed for 659 yards and six touchdowns on 184 carries and caught 39 passes for 266 yards and one touchdown in 15 games, all as a starter.
