Perhaps it is the 0-2 start coinciding with Kenny Britt's knee getting healthier, but the Tennessee Titans look ready to incorporate the standout wide receiver into their offense more beginning this week.
Britt was suspended for the opener because of a DUI and was limited to around 19 snaps in his first game in nearly a year coming off three knee procedures, including an ACL tear last September.
“To tell you the truth, it felt good after the game and it felt good after today's practice and I actually ran more today than I did in the game. I feel good,” Britt said via TitanInsider. “Now it doesn't hurt when I get in and out of my breaks. It takes me less time to warm up. I'm getting back to my old self and I'm feeling good.”
Britt was in for five plays in a row at one point Wednesday, and at 0-2 Coach Mike Munchak sounds like he could use a breakout game from Britt soon.
“I think limitations are lifted. I think we just see how the game unravels,” Munchak said. “I think he’ll get an opportunity to obviously play more, and hopefully he’ll have a chance to contribute. Like you mentioned, run the field more, so he’ll get to play more and start making a difference that we think he can make.”
