NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Titans just wrapped up practice on Friday at Saint Thomas Sports Park.

On Sunday, the team will face the Seahawks at Nissan Stadium.

Three quick hits from today:

**

Murray "questionable"**

Running back DeMarco Murray returned to the practice field on Friday after missing the previous two days with a hamstring injury.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey called Murray questionable for Sunday's game.

"He looked better today, he took more snaps," Mularkey said of Murray. "He was limited, but took more snaps.

"It's the kind of injury where we'll watch and see how he is when he wakes up (Sunday) morning. … We'll talk it through. We've been pretty smart to this point, we're not going to subject anybody to further injury."

Running back Derrick Henry ran for a career-high 92 yards against the Jaguars as Murray missed most the second half with a tight hamstring.

Asked on Friday if Henry might be the starter with Murray coming off the bench, Mularkey replied: "You'll see Sunday."

"I don't think it matters," Mularkey said. "They are both very good backs, I don't think it matters who starts and who doesn't. They are both very good backs who can be productive in this league.

**

Jonnu confidence**

Rookie tight end Jonnu Smith caught his first career touchdown against the Jaguars, and continues to make progress, per Mularkey.

"I thought he had a good week," Mularkey said. "He is constantly working, trying to get better, but he had a good week. His rookie year, he is going to keep learning." 

Smith played 37 of the team's 68 snaps against the Jaguars and had two catches for 30 yards in the contest.

"Like I always say, as long as I am putting my team in the best situation to win, that helps me build the confidence," Smith said. "If it is pass blocking, run blocking, in the passing game, whatever that is, and I am continuing to help my team, then that helps me build confidence."

Injuries

Receiver Corey Davis (hamstring) and safety Johnathan Cyprien (hamstring) have been ruled out for Sunday.

Cornerback Tye Smith (hand) and linebacker Erik Walden (groin) practiced again on Friday.

Mularkey on Friday complimented the way Davis has approached things while being sidelined.

"He is outstanding right now,'' Mularkey said. "He is into the game plan and studying, supporting is teammates. He is trying to get well as fast as he can. He is in a good place in the mental part of the game."
