NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Titans running back DeMarco Murray returned to practice Thursday after sitting out of the team workout Wednesday.

Murray has been dealing with a foot injury suffered in the Titans blowout win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The hope is it heals during the season, but it could be an injury that lingers for some time.

Murray said Thursday though that’s not a concern and the injury is improving.

“It felt a little better this Thursday compared to last Thursday,” he said.

In the meantime, Murray is expected to continue playing through some pain.

“At this time of the year, everybody is a little banged up and you have to fight through it,” he said.

Murray fought through it in San Diego, but was limited to 50 yards on only 14 carries.

He said the injury did not slow him down, “I was out there every play I think, but a couple… I have to deal with it.”

This Sunday the Titans third ranked rush offense takes on the Green Bay Packers top ranked rush defense and Murray says he and his team are ready.

“This is a great opportunity for us, they’re a great team,” Murray said.

Also in the Titans backfield, 2015 Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry missed his second straight practice with a calf strain.

Henry did say he expects to try and practice some Friday and possibly play Sunday.
