Tennessee Titans defensive lineman Jurrell Casey went through individual work again on Thursday and the club hopes to increase his workload again on Friday.
The Titans, however, are still in wait-and-see mode regarding Casey’s status for Sunday’s game at the Kansas City Chiefs.
Casey missed only the second game of his NFL career last Sunday due to a left foot injury suffered against the Chicago Bears on Nov. 27.
“Jurrell did more, which we thought, and hopefully tomorrow we’ll get him a good, extensive amount, just for his sake and ours,” Titans coach Mike Mularkey said. “We’ll have to make some decisions when it comes to inactives.”
Casey’s situation on the defensive line is further complicated by the fact that fellow defensive end Karl Klug, who got the lion’s share of the snaps in Casey’s place last week against Denver, missed his second straight practice with a strained Achilles.
“Karl Klug we held out. We felt like that was the best thing for him,” Mularkey said.
In addition to that, two linebackers were also on the Titans injury report. Sean Spence missed his second practice in a row with a sprained left ankle. Also, on Thursday, David Bass was added to the Titans injury report with a groin injury that limited him. Bass, according to Mularkey, still should be able to play Sunday.
