    DeMarco Murray Expects To Bounce Back In 2018

    Monday, January 15, 2:24 PM

    Tennessee Titans running back DeMarco Murray is hoping to bounce back in 2018 after dealing with several injuries and a down season in 2017. "I am very confident in myself and I am excited," Murray said. "I am excited about the future, and my future. I know what kind of player I am." Murray missed the regular season finale and both of the team's playoff games with a knee injury, but he hadn't missed a game before that since joining them before the 2016 season. On the season as a whole, he ran 184 times for 659 yards, and backup Derrick Henry was more productive over the course of the year. It was especially clear down the stretch and into the postseason that Henry is the present and future for the Titans backfield. If Murray does return in 2018, he'll likely take on a much smaller role and work as more of Henry's backup, instead of vice-versa like this season.
