No official word on Kenny Britt, yet

Getty Images

Despite the fact that the Titans fear receiver Kenny Britt will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL, the team has said nothing about his status in the wake of an MRI that was expected to be conducted on Monday.

But the Titans are beginning to line up replacements, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.

Per Wyatt, Donnie Avery and Buster Davis are possible candidates.

It could be that the Titans have decided to keep the truth about Britt under wraps until they can get a replacement signed.  Once it’s known that Britt won’t be back, the leverage for the available free agents goes up.

Then again, how much leverage does a guy who doesn’t have a job really have?

Another possibility could be the addition of a receiver via trade.  In that regard, keeping the official word on Britt’s status a secret could make it easier to get a deal done.  Besides, we can’t think of any team that currently is trying to dump via trade a wideout who would be good enough to make a difference in Tennessee.

    At this point Kenny remains “under investigation”.

    Does anybody have an idea of how many players were lost for the season due to a torn ACL last year at this same time?

    My gosh, this has to be a record number of players out for the year with the same injury.

    Any relation to the lockout and lack of training???

    With Kenny Britt out and Chris Johnson in-but-out-of-shape (physically and mentally), the Titans had better hope this return to Pro-Bowl form by Matt Hasselbeck is for real.

    I swear. If the Texans don’t win this division, they ought to be kicked out of the league.

    Okay, just kidding. But seriously.

    How does Ochocinco sound Titans?

    Brian Robiskie to the Titans for a 5th rounder would make me happy. The Browns blew a 2nd rounder on him but some people still think he could be good someday. I’m not one of those people.

    James Jones?

    What do they gain by releasing the news? There’s the answer.

    If Buster Davis can replace Britt, Kenny isn’t worth the electricity cost of the MRI.

    yahoos ff site says hes torn both acl and mcl. i hope for his and the teams sake theyre incorrect

  12. travisfkingstephens says: Sep 26, 2011 3:12 PM

    Worst kept secret of all time?

  13. capslockkey says: Sep 26, 2011 3:15 PM

    The lockout is killing the league this year with all the injuries to impact players. We are only 3 games in and the list of guys lost for the year already is disturbing.

  14. seegray says: Sep 26, 2011 3:29 PM

    Donte Stallworth would make sense as a trade option for a variety of reasons… Skins can’t keep 8 WRs all year long…

    Though I’m a big Jordy Nelson Fan, I wouldn’t be made if the Packers traded him, or James Jones, if they could get a good player in return — that’s probably a big IF. Not sure what Titans D looks like, but GB might take a pass rusher or safety at this point.

    I’d prefer to keep Jordy over Jones, but Jordy is a FA next season and Jones is locked up on a cap-friendly deal.

    With the way Finley played yesterday, the Packers don’t “need” all the WR’s they have. At 6’5″ with speed and soft hands, it’s not even fair to call Finley a TE. Driver is on the decline, but Randall Cobb looks ready to be next in line. A group of Jennings, Finley, Cobb, and Jones for the future doesn’t look too bad.

    they wont do it but they could attempt to trade for desean jackson

  17. clavette says: Sep 26, 2011 3:34 PM

    nfl network just said about 5 min ago that its torn ligaments and hes done for the season

  18. worstposterever says: Sep 26, 2011 3:37 PM

    You can’t think of a team who might trade a WR, especially having another team bent over?

    Have you heard of Ted Thompson?

    He’ll trade James Jones for a 2nd round pick or Donald Driver for a 4th…

    new nickname:

    Kenny Britt-le

  20. schmitty2 says: Sep 26, 2011 3:39 PM

    I’m sure the arrest meter will be sounding off soon

  21. pftstory says: Sep 26, 2011 3:41 PM

    Are any teams really so stupid as to believe that if the Titans call about a WR the day Britt has a MRI, the two are not related?

  22. bradwins says: Sep 26, 2011 3:51 PM

    Um…what team is going to be fooled by these tactics?

    “Oh, what’s this you say? You want to trade for our WR? But you haven’t announced that Kenny Britt (who was hurt so badly he quit football altogether the second it happened and just threw the ball on the ground) is having his leg amputated yet, so you must not need our WR that bad. Whadaya say you throw us a 7th rounder in 2017?”

  23. pftard says: Sep 26, 2011 3:52 PM

    Shouldn’t the Patriots be ready to trade Ochocinco by now? The Titans could probably get him for next to nothing.

  24. berniemadoffsides says: Sep 26, 2011 4:06 PM

    Randy Moss would be a perfect candida… oh, yeah. Nevermind.

  25. tennesseeoilers says: Sep 26, 2011 4:09 PM

    Agreed, Nikhil Balakumar.

    Chris Johnson and a No. 1 pick for DeSean Jackson … right now.
