    The Titans will likely be without a handful of regulars for their final preseason game.

    Titans coach Mike Munchak said defensive tackle Jurrell Casey (elbow), defensive tackle Sen’Derrick Marks (knee), cornerback Ryan Mouton (concussion) and defensive end Leger Douzable (shoulder) will all likely be rested after suffering injuries in the win over Arizona.

    Munchak did not seem to think any of the injuries would carry over into the regular season.

    Defensive end Dave Ball, who hasn’t played in any of the preseason games, won’t play in the finale either, though he has been making some progress in recovering from a concussion.

    “I think he’s been working out, and that’s been going better, which has been good for him to be more positive,” Munchak said. “I think he’s feeling better about things when he can start breaking a sweat again and doing things and you feel him getting close to feeling normal again. I think it’s just a matter of that. He’s moving along, but obviously he won’t be practicing the next couple of days.”

    They should all be okay. Casey even returned after the injury. Mouton's looked pretty severe. Didn't realize Marks got hurt.

    I think we'll miss Mariani more than we realize as a fanbase.
