Now that coaches are talking again during this week’s swath of mandatory minicamps, we’re finding out about all sorts of injury updates across the league.
That applies to Tennessee, where Titans coach Mike Mularkey broke news on a pair of key offensive players, running back DeMarco Murray and second-year receiver Tajae Sharpe.
Murray recently underwent a hand procedure on a minor, nagging injury, but should be out of a cast by Monday, per Mularkey. The 29-year-old runner will be “fine” for training camp.
“You know, like I said [it’s] just a little lingering issue that, you know, [we] thought, might as well just get it done now,” said Murray, who added that he initially suffered the injury during Week 2 of the 2016 season.
Sharpe also went under the knife and is currently recovering from foot surgery. Like Murray, last year’s fifth-round draft pick is expected to be ready for camp.
We could spend another five paragraphs telling you what this means for the Titans, but it ultimately means nothing if both players are ready to roll come July.
