Titans WR Kenny Britt charged with DUI

The Tennessean - [Full Article]

Titans receiver Kenny Britt was taken into custody early Friday morning at Fort Campbell (Ky.) and charged with driving under the influence. Fort Campbell officials say Britt was attempting to enter the Army post at approximately 3:30 a.m. through Gate 4. He was administered a field sobriety test, which showed indicators of intoxication. Britt later refused a Breathalyzer test and was charged with DUI and implied consent. It’s Britt’s eighth incident involving police since he was drafted in the first round in 2009.

Britt has been rehabbing both his knees this offseason, most recently a procedure on his left knee. After suffering a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee last September, Britt had a second procedure on the knee in May. Then, last month, Britt had arthroscopic surgery on the left knee.

The Titans on Friday morning released a statement: “We are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering more facts.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Britt has certainly had his issues since coming into the league. When you factor in his recent knee surgeries (three of them), and now possible discipline, it's probably time to lower him on your draft board even further. We already had him at 29 based on his health. He has now slid to WR33 in standard scoring and WR31 in PPR formats. Rookie Kendall Wright has a chance to be a mid-to-late round success story this year if Britt misses time. We currently have Wright ranked WR48, behind Titans WR2 Nate Washington who is at WR41. At this point, Wright's upside is dependent on Kenny Britt being off the field.
