Tennessee Titans receiver Kenny Britt will play in Sunday’s game against the Eagles but will not start, after being involved in a bar brawl early Friday morning.
Britt took part in the team’s walkthrough Saturday after being excused from Friday’s practice.
Titans head coach Jeff Fisher said on Saturday night he has spoken multiple times with Britt and continues to gather information about the incident.
"Without all the information this close to the ballgame I’m going to go ahead and allow Kenny to play," Fisher said. "I’ll continue to gather information, and if I feel like disciplinary action needs to be taken, I’ll do it next week."
Britt has scored touchdowns in the past four games and has started the past two games in place of the injured Justin Gage. Receiver Nate Washington will start at one spot, and rookie Damian Williams also could be bumped into a starting role as a result of Britt’s one-game demotion. There’s also a chance Gage could return from a hamstring injury.
Most owners have probably already removed Britt from their lineups, and even though he'll play, he's not a great guy to start unless you absolutely have to.
