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

On Sunday, the team will face the Cleveland Browns.

Three quick hits after today's practice:

**

Sack attack**

Defensive lineman Jurrell Casey recorded his first two sacks of the season on Sunday against the Dolphins, and he was part of a six-sack day by the Titans.

Casey, a Pro Bowler last season, said he hopes it's a sign of things to come. The Titans now have 12 sacks as a team, led by linebacker Brian Orakpo's six.

"We are very eager to find out,'' Casey said. "A lot of our guys are looking forward to the next couple of games to see what we are really capable of. Are we able to be consistent, and are we able to put together games back-to-back?

"We are definitely hoping for more (sacks). … For me, I prepared last week and did everything the same and it opened up. Now we just have to keep it going."

Casey, who is in his sixth season with the Titans, now has 30 sacks. With one more, he will tie Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive tackle Curley Culp (31) for 10th place in franchise annals.

**

Containing Pryor**

Browns receiver Terrelle Pryor has been a jack-of-all-trades in Cleveland.

Pryor has 24 catches for 338 yards and a touchdown this season. He's also worked in the Wildcat, and completed 4-of-8 passes for 40 yards. He has seven rushes for 18 yards.

The Titans consider him quite a weapon for the Browns, who are ranked fifth in the NFL in rushing, with Isaiah Crowell leading the way with 416 yards and three touchdowns.

"His conversion to wide receiver has gone very well,'' Titans coach Mike Mularkey said of Pryor, a former star at Ohio State. "He has gone through some situations where people have just not believed he's been able to do that, and he has shown that he can. I think he is going to get better and better as he gets more experience.

"But you have to know where the guy is, because he's a guy who can wreck the game no matter where he is – quarterback, gadget runner, outside running the go route. He can do it all."

Injuries

Safety Da'Norris Searcy returned to practice this week, and is no longer on the team's Injury Report. Searcy missed the last two games with an ankle injury.

"Da'Norris looked good today,'' Mularkey said, "and I'm anxious to see how he is tomorrow."

Cornerback Cody Riggs (hamstring) was limited, along with tackle Taylor Lewan (shoulder).

Defensive lineman Al Woods (calf) did not practice on Wednesday, and punter Brett Kern also missed practice with an illness.
