NASHVILLE, Tenn. —The Titans just wrapped up practice on Friday at Saint Thomas Sports Park.

On Sunday, the team will face the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.

Three quick hits after today's practice:

**

Casey calls himself "a go"**

Titans defensive lineman Jurrell Casey won't lie – he hates cold weather.

But the Long Beach, Calif., native loves playing football, and he plans to return to action on Sunday in frigid Kansas City after missing last week's game with a sprained foot.

"I am disappointed I missed last week, but I am ready to move forward and get going this week,'' Casey said. "I am 10 times better than I was last week, and I think that it is definitely what I needed. I am ready to get going, especially for this week coming up. It is going to be huge to get ready for this push we are looking for."

Titans coach Mike Mularkey listed Casey as limited in Friday's practice, and called him questionable for Sunday's game.

In the locker room after practice, Casey told reporters, "for sure I'll play."

Casey said the Titans are in a good spot with three games left. He can hardly wait to get out there on Sunday, but he's dreading the temperature. The current forecast calls for 6 degrees at kickoff.

"Guys are definitely excited,'' Casey said, "especially myself. It is something I'd been looking forward to since I got into this league, a chance to fight for the grand championship at the end, and everyone wants the opportunity."

Mariota's week

Quarterback Marcus Mariota experimented with a glove on his throwing hand in practice earlier in the week, but said it wasn't comfortable and he took it off.

The Titans practice all week in below-freezing temperatures in preparation for Sunday's game, and Mularkey said Mariota had a solid week. Mariota said Sunday's game will be the coldest of his life.

"He was fine,'' Mularkey said of Mariota. "(The weather) didn't bother him. He may use (the glove) and he may not."

Other injuries

Defensive lineman Karl Klug (Achilles) and linebacker David Bass (groin) practiced on Friday and they're questionable for Sunday's game.

Linebacker Sean Spence (ankle) did not practice and he has been ruled out. Mularkey said Spence should be able to return to action the following week.
