Titans defensive lineman Jurrell Casey was miserable at the end of last season.

Casey suffered a knee injury in the teams December 22 win against the Redskins, and he wasnt able to play in the season finale vs. the Colts. The Titans lost that contest, and their season ended as a result.

I probably cried the first couple of nights, Casey told Titans Online back in February. I know it wasnt too bad of a crazy injury, but just to know that I wasnt able to help my team the following week, couldnt participate in one of the biggest games of my career with my teammates, it hurt. It hurt me bad.

A year later, Casey is set to play in another win-and-in scenario contest. If the Titans win on Sunday in Houston, theyll advance to the postseason. Casey has 56 tackles and four sacks on the season. He recorded the 50th sack of his career against the Saints.

The ending of the 2018 serves as more motivation for Casey heading in to Sunday.

It was a terrible feeling, Casey said on Thursday. Not only was I injured, but knowing I had no way to help the team, it was a struggle. It is something I had to deal with the entire offseason. But I have an opportunity now and I thank the Lord everything is good to go. To get an opportunity, and to have a chance to help my team try and get into the playoffs, its all you can ask for.
