Casey ended the 2018 season on injured reserve after hurting his knee in the second-to-last game of the season. It's a shame he wasn't able to suit up for his fourth consecutive Pro Bowl after another impressive season in which he ultimately finished as the top-graded interior defensive lineman in the AFC South, per Pro Football Focus. The bright side of the situation is that there's been no word Casey is dealing with a long-term knee injury, making it seem possible he could be back on the field by the time OTAs start up this spring.
Casey (knee) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Casey strained his MCL in Sunday's win over the Redskins. The injury is a blow to a Titans' squad that needs a win over the Colts in Week 17 to make the playoffs. Casey will end the season with 62 tackles (36 solo), including seven sacks, two forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery. Look for Matt Dickerson to start at right defensive end in place of Casey going forward.
Casey was forced to exit Saturday's win over the Redskins with a knee injury and his status for the remainder of the season is uncertain, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports
Kuharsky indicates the Titans are preparing to play Week 17 and the playoffs -- if the team qualifies -- without Casey. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, though it's reportedly not an ACL. The 29-year-old sustained a knee injury last week against the Giants, though it remains unclear whether he aggravated that injury or is dealing with a new issue. Casey's absence would represent a major blow to the Titans defense as the team is battling for a playoff spot.
Casey (knee) does not have an injury designation for Saturday's game against the Redskins, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Casey appears to have recovered from the knee injury he sustained during Sunday's win over the Giants, and he's on track to suit up versus the Redskins. He was a limited participant in Thursday's practice. The veteran defensive end will draw his usual starting workload.
Casey appears to have suffered a knee injury during Sunday's win over the Giants, though the defensive end was able to log 52 defensive snaps.
