DeMarco Murray to undergo MRI on injured knee
The Tennessee Titans dropped a close game on Sunday. They might have suffered an even bigger loss during the contest.
Running back DeMarco Murray suffered a knee injury in the fourth quarter of Tennessee’s 27-23 loss to the Los Angeles Rams and needed help off the field and to the locker room. He did not return to the game, and Titans coach Mike Mularkey told reporters after the game Murray will undergo an MRI. He added that the injury didn’t look good.
When asked Tuesday if he is a candidate, Gruden said, Well, I think I am being considered, yes. I hope I’m a candidate.
The head of the diversity group that works with the NFL on its hiring practices confirmed to NFL Network’s Steve Wyche on Thursday that Oakland is in compliance with the Rooney Rule, which requires teams to interview at least one minority for any head coaching vacancy.
Wednesday’s news comes during a busy week of change in Green Bay. The Packers parted ways with longtime defensive coordinator Dom Capers on Monday, and it was announced Tuesday that general manager Ted Thompson is transitioning to a role as senior advisor to football operations after running the team since 2005.
The Packers also have let go assistant linebackers coach Scott McCurley and defensive line coach Mike Trgovac.
Such a drastic coaching overhaul comes at a moment when the team currently has no official general manager in place, leaving McCarthy as the person in charge of football in Green Bay for the time being.
