Kenny Britt will remain in Tennessee as he rehabs his knee


Tennessee receiver Kenny Britt was arrested twice last offseason, and Britt’s father said he was concerned that Kenny was running with the wrong crowd in his his hometown of Bayonne, New Jersey, and needed to get back to Nashville. This offseason, Britt says he will remain in Nashville during his time off between today’s conclusion of minicamp and the July 27 start of training camp.

But Britt isn’t staying in town for the reason his father wanted. Instead, Britt, who is recovering from a torn ACL and MCL suffered in Week Three of last season, said he’ll be staying in town to work with the team’s trainers.

I want to get my work in and make sure my knee is right and make sure I am doing the right thing to get my knee right,” Britt said. “I am confident I’ll be ready. We just don’t know what God has in store for me that day. But I am pushing for it and my goal is to be there in camp with the guys.”

Britt had a sensational start to last season, catching 14 passes for 271 yards and three touchdowns in the first two games. Talking about himself in the third person, Britt declared this year’s goal to be playing all 16 games.

“We don’t even know what the real Kenny Britt could be like because we’ve never had a Kenny Britt the whole season except for my rookie year,” Britt said. “Hopefully, God willing, I will go through the whole season healthy and try and get on the same page I was on last year.”

And hopefully, God willing, Britt will make it through his time off without getting arrested.
