No matter what point you’ve checked in with Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt this year, there’s been some issue getting in the way of his ability to just get on the field and play.
This is nothing new. Britt has missed 19 of 52 games since joining the Titans and there’s no sign that the problems are going away.
It started with his recovery from knee surgery, moved on to a hamstring issue this summer and has included a one-game suspension and ankle injury that have kept him from playing in two of the team’s first four games. Britt was able to take part in individual drills at Titans practice on Wednesday, but didn’t do team work and coach Mike Munchak admitted that there’s still work to do if Britt is going to return to the lineup against the Vikings this week.
“He’s taken the next step as far as being on the field and running again,” Munchak said, via John Glennon of the Tennessean. “How he responds tomorrow and how much more he can do tomorrow … There’s no doubt he’s going to have to improve the next couple of days to help us on Sunday. But at least he’s headed in the right direction.”
Britt described himself as easing his ankle in, which makes it sound like the best case scenario for Britt is going to be that he’s a game-time decision on Sunday. The fact that the Titans are familiar with such a state of affairs probably doesn’t make it any more enjoyable for them to deal with it.
