NASHVILLE, Tenn. – On Nov. 26, Derrick Henry looked way better than DeMarco Murray in the Titans’ second win over Indianapolis.

Henry took 13 carries for 79 yards, while Murray had 12 for nine.

On Nov. 30, Mike Mularkey spoke well of both running backs and declared, “I think we have two starters.”HenryStiffArmCIN

On Dec. 3 against Houston, Murray played only eight more snaps than Henry.

But since then, the Titans have shrunk Henry’s role way down.

During the Titans’ three-game losing streak, Murray has been on the field for 143 snaps, while Henry has played just 51.

It's not as if Murray’s been rolling during those three games. He averaged 3.2 yards a carry on his chances, while Henry was at 2.8.
