Tennessee Titans defensive end Jurrell Casey did some individual work on Wednesday, marking his first return to practice since injuring his left foot against the Chicago Bears on Nov. 27.
Casey was listed as limited in Wednesday’s work, and is still day-to-day as the Titans began their preparation for this Sunday’s important road game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
“I’m going to take it day by day. It felt good. Today was (individual) and it felt good, and I’m hoping to get a little more going tomorrow and see how it feels on Friday and get ready to go for Sunday,” Casey said.
Casey has been one of the Titans’ most durable players in his six-year career, as Sunday was just the second game he has missed in his professional career.
“I was encouraged by Jurrell. He was much better today than he was last week. I’m encouraged by him, but we’re gonna ease him back into it. We’re not gonna rush it,” Titans coach Mike Mularkey said.
As for other injuries, Casey’s fellow defensive lineman Karl Klug sat out with a strained Achilles, and linebacker Sean Spence was out of practice due to a sprained left ankle.
Titans coach Mike Mularkey indicated that the club would be smart in how they handle those players’ injuries during the week.
“You’ve got time. It’s Wednesday, it’s late in the season. We’ll be smart with them,” Mularkey said.
