Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) remained sidelined on Thursday. He played through the injury on Monday night, so Tennessee could just be taking a cautious approach with the veteran. But it's clear that he won't be 100% if he plays against the Browns on Sunday. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. He was noticeably hobbled on Monday night but never exited the game. We're expecting him to play against the Browns this weekend, but check back tomorrow for another update.

Titans HC Mike Mularkey on Monday ruled out WR Corey Davis (hamstring) for this weekend's game against the Browns. It'll be the rookie's 5th straight missed game. And we haven't seen or heard any signs of progress. Tennessee has a Week 8 bye, so perhaps Davis is targeting a Week 9 return. Rishard Matthews, Eric Decker and Taywan Taylor will again serve as the top 3 WRs for Sunday's plus matchup vs. Cleveland.

Titans QB Marcus Mariota (hamstring) is active for tonight's game against the Colts. There's risk of an in-game setback, and Mariota's rushing ability figures to be limited. But there's also plenty of passing upside here vs. an Indy defense that's allowing 308 yards per game.

Titans writer Paul Kuharsky reports that QB Marcus Mariota will play Monday night against the Colts. That makes him worth waiting for if you're deciding between the Titans QB and 1 of the passers from today's late games. Jacoby Brissett remains ultimate insurance where he's available.

Titans QB Marcus Mariota (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Colts after a limited week of practice. We're hoping to get an update on his status on Sunday morning, but he might be a game-time decision. Stay tuned.

Update: ESPN's Cameron Wolfe says the decision "will likely linger until game day for the second consecutive week." That would be no good for fantasy owners, obviously, unless you have Jacoby Brissett as insurance. We'll see if anything else comes out before today's games.

Titans HC Mike Mularkey said Friday that he's "hopeful" QB Marcus Mariota (hamstring) will be able to play against the Colts on Monday night. Mariota was limited again in Friday's practice. “It is going to come down to a lot of things," Mularkey added. "We have a full speed practice tomorrow, a walk-through and all that rest. It might be a game-time decision. Can he play and not risk himself further injury? That’s the biggest thing.” Check back tomorrow for another update.

Titans QB Marcus Mariota said Wednesday that his injured hamstring feels "a lot better." He did more in practice on Wednesday than he did last week, but he still wasn't a full-go. "As the days go on, hopefully I’ll feel better and better," Mariota said. "It is just taking it one day at a time and hopefully I’ll be able to go. Hopefully towards the end of the week I’ll get more on my plate and hopefully I’ll feel comfortable to try and play on Monday.” We'll continue to track Mariota's progress and hope to have a good idea about his status by Sunday morning.

Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) is out for Monday night's game against the Colts. The rookie has been sidelined since Week 3 and has no timetable for return. He's worth stashing if possible but might need to be dropped in shorter-bench leagues as the bye weeks start to hit.

Titans QB Marcus Mariota (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. QB Matt Cassel gets the start. He’s not a fantasy option and is a significant downgrade for Tennessee’s pass-catchers. Expect a run-heavy attack.

Titans QB Marcus Mariota is not expected to play today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Mariota entered the day as a game-time decision, but expect Matt Cassel to replace him against the Dolphins. The downgrade from Mariota to Cassel obviously hurts the other Tennessee passing game pieces in fantasy, but it's a good enough matchup that you shouldn't ignore them completely. The QB situation should have the offense leaning even more on its backfield, which gives RB Derrick Henry a bit more upside than usual.

Titans HC Mike Mularkey on Friday labeled QB Marcus Mariota (hamstring) a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt vs. the Dolphins. He put in 3 limited practices this week and is listed as questionable. We'll find out his official status by noon ET on Sunday. If active, Mariota will have both a lower floor and ceiling at less than 100%. But the plus matchup would keep him in the QB1 discussion.

Titans HC Mike Mularkey said QB Marcus Mariota (hamstring) did "a little more" in Thursday's practice. He'll be listed as limited again. Mariota is trending toward a "questionable" tag and could end up as a game-time decision. The good news is that Titans-Dolphins kicks off at 1 pm ET on Sunday. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Titans QB Marcus Mariota (hamstring) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. The fact that he did anything so early in the week is encouraging. We'll continue to track Mariota's status leading up to Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Titans HC Mike Mularkey on Monday ruled out WR Corey Davis (hamstring) for this weekend's game against the Dolphins. It'll be the rookie's 3rd straight missed game -- and there's no timetable for his return. Davis might be tough to hang on to in shallow-bench leagues with the bye weeks starting to hit.

Titans QB Marcus Mariota is considered "day-to-day" with his hamstring injury, HC Mike Mularkey said Monday. He compared the injury to the one DeMarco Murray was able to play through last week. So it sounds like Mariota escaped with a minor injury. But hamstrings can be tricky, especially for a QB who relies on his legs. We'll keep a close eye on Mariota this week. If healthy, he'll be a strong fantasy play vs. Miami.

Titans QB Marcus Mariota injured his hamstring in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game in Houston. He's officially questionable to return. QB Matt Cassel is in the game for Tennessee.

Titans DE Jurrell Casey is active for today's game against the Texans after entering the day questionable with a groin injury. He's a boom/bust IDP option in a high-upside matchup.

Titans DE Jurrell Casey is questionable for Sunday's game in Houston because of a groin injury. Casey didn't show up on the injury report until Friday, when he turned up as a limited practice participant. So it looks like he suffered the injury that day. There's upside to his matchup, but a groin injury 2 days before adds risk as well. We'll update Casey's status on Sunday.

Titans TE Delanie Walker (hamstring) is not listed on the final Week 4 injury report. He was a full-go on Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. Walker is safe to keep him in fantasy lineups.
