NASHVILLE, Tenn. —The Titans just wrapped up practice on Wednesday 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 update**

Titans defensive lineman Jurrell Casey missed Sunday's game against the Broncos, and right now he's a question mark for this week's game against the Chiefs.

Casey worked in individual drills on Wednesday, and was listed as limited on the team's Injury Report. He's been dealing with a foot injury he suffered against the Bears on November 27.

"I am definitely going to take it day-by-day, see how it is feeling, and get ready to go,'' Casey said. "The biggest thing is making sure I am able to roll and give the team the best I can give them on Sunday. So that is the plan right now."

Casey said it was tough to watch on Sunday against the Broncos, but said he was proud of the way the team took care of business on defense without him.

He's hopeful he'll be able to return against the Chiefs.

"One step at a time,'' Casey said. "Let's hope we can get a little more going tomorrow and see how it feels on Friday and get ready to roll on Sunday."

**

Rising to occasion**

Receiver Tre McBride was inactive for four straight games for the Titans after being promoted from the practice squad on November 2.

When the Titans made him active for Sunday's game against the Broncos, however, McBride found himself in a key spot at a key time. He downed punter Brett Kern's punt at the two-yard line in the closing minutes, then the Titans forced a turnover and the Titans held on to win, 13-10.

"Any time I get an opportunity, I am going to make the best of it," McBride said.

McBride has received some great feedback from teammates since. Running back DeMarco Murray said afterward McBride made one of the biggest plays of the game.

"Brett has been fighting for me to play all year," McBride said. "He knew I was going to make a play – he called it the night before and a lot of the other players told me: 'That's big. Way to be there.' I just want to help when I can.

"When my opportunity comes again, I will be out there to make another play."
