Titans DT Jurrell Casey (foot, questionable) said Friday that he will "for sure" play in Week 15 at Kansas City.

Casey missed Week 14 and the Titans were gashed for over 350 passing yards by Trevor Seimian. Casey is Tennessee's only real means of disruption on the defensive interior. His return will be a boost to the Titans' defense.

Titans DE Jurrell Casey (foot) is inactive for Week 14 against the Broncos.

He was the only Titans player in question, and it's a big loss, as Casey is the Titans' best lineman. Also inactive for the Titans are WR Kendall Wright, RB David Fluellen, CB Curtis Riley, OG Sebastian Tretola, TE Jace Amaro, and LB Justin Staples.

Titans DE Jurrell Casey (questionable, foot) is a game-time decision for Week 14.

Casey didn't practice all week but coach Mike Mularkey isn't ruling him out for Sunday. It doesn't sound like he'll play more than limited snaps even if he manages to be active. Casey's status is an upgrade to Devontae Booker and Justin Forsett's matchups.

Titans DE Jurrell Casey (questionable, foot) did not practice Friday.

Coach Mike Mularkey said he was "hopeful" Casey would play earlier this week, but that seems unlikely after a full week of missed practices. One of the best defensive linemen in the league, Casey would be missed against the Broncos.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey remains "hopeful" DE Jurrell Casey (foot) will play in Week 14.

Casey didn't practice on Wednesday coming off the Titans' bye, which isn't a good sign. Still, it's too early to speculate on his status for Sunday's home game against the Broncos. Casey has spent the last two weeks nursing a sprained foot.

Titans DE Jurrell Casey (sprained foot) is expected to be ready following the team's Week 13 bye.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said the team wants to cut DE Jurrell Casey's snaps.

"He’s a high-motor, hard guy to block when he’s at full speed," Mularkey said. "I’m not talking a dramatic amount (less). But we thought after watching him and the way he plays, probably less." One of the most underrated defenders in the league, Casey is easily the best player on the Titans defense and plays a relatively low percentage of snaps compared to other top linemen. The Titans should be trying to get him on the field as much as possible.

Titans DE Jurrell Casey put on about 10 pounds this offseason.

Casey added the weight in an effort to stand up better against the run. "I had to get a little heavier," Casey said. "I felt like last year I was getting moved a little easier than normal." The Titans surrendered the second most rushing yards per game last season.

Titans signed DE Jurrell Casey to a four-year, $36 million extension through 2018.

It includes $20.5 million guaranteed and makes Casey the highest-paid player on the Titans' roster. $9 million annually is a lot of dough to shell out. Casey is now the second-highest-paid 3-4 end in football in terms of annual average behind Calais Campbell's $11 million. Casey had a career year in 2013, racking up 10.5 sacks and 55 tackles. That was as a penetrating one-gap defensive tackle in a 4-3. For the sake of the Titans, we hope new DC Ray Horton will allow Casey to push the pocket instead of playing two-gap.

The Titans met with agent Drew Rosenhaus Tuesday to continue discussions about a contract extension for DT Jurrell Casey.

The sides have been working on an extension for months and could be close to finalizing a deal. Casey had 90 tackles and 10.5 sacks last season, grading out as a top-five defensive tackle by Pro Football Focus. He's owed $1.431 million in the final year of his rookie deal.

Titans GM Ruston Webster "expects to get an extension worked out" with walk-year DT Jurrell Casey.

The sides have remained in constant communication, but have yet to make a breakthrough. Heading into the final year of his rookie contract after racking up 10.5 sacks last season, Casey has little incentive to settle for a discount.

Jurrell Casey remains in contract extension negotiations with the Titans.

The two sides have been talking for a couple months now, but there's been no breakthrough yet. The Titans may want Casey to "prove it" again after breaking out for 10.5 sacks and a top-four grade among defensive tackles from PFF. He's owed $1.431 million this season, the final year of his rookie deal.

Titans DL Jurrell Casey has dropped 15 pounds since last offseason, and will play around 290 this season.

Per the Nashville Tennessean, Casey "is expected to play outside more often" in new DC Ray Horton's 3-4 scheme. The weight loss is intended to increase Casey's quickness. 3-4 defensive ends typically play at heavier weights, not lighter. We're very interested to see how Horton employs Casey, who is a three-technique pass rusher at his best. His skill set is suited poorly to a 3-4.
