With Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt undergoing a second procedure on his knee this week, it looks like general manager Ruston Webster and the Titans will likely take things slow with Britt and knee once training camp begins.
Webster recently hinted that they may keep Britt from playing preseason games in order to help him get ready for their week one regular season game against the New England Patriots.
“I don’t know if he’s going to be ready the first day of training camp or not,” Webster said. “We’ll just have to wait and see. I do think he’ll be ready for the season, and if you remember, we went through this last year where he didn’t play preseason games or played the last preseason game and was ready to go. We know when we’re really going to need him — that’s when we line up against New England.”
The good news is that Britt has been running straight ahead and making some cuts as well. The second procedure was conducted in order to clean out his knee from when he had his ACL repaired.
“He’s doing well,” Webster said. “He was changing directions the other day nicely. It’s more of how his knee reacts after he does that.”
“It’s almost become commonplace,” Webster said. “It’s not one of those things that was, ‘Wow, we’re having surgery.’ It’s very common, and if it helps his rehab process, it’s well worth doing. Our goal is to have him play this year. You don’t want to get into the middle of camp and (need to do something).”Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
