WR Kenny Britt said Tuesday that if not for the scope on his left knee in June that he would probably already be back practicing with the Tennessee Titans.
Britt tore the ACL and MCL in his right knee last September and had a clean-up surgery on that knee in May, but he also had a procedure in late June on his other knee to remove some damaged cartilage. And that, he says, is what is keeping him on the physically unable to perform list.
“To tell you the truth, it's the more recent one. If I didn't have that setback, I'd probably be practicing with the fellas right now, but I got that little bump in the road that set me back,” Britt said. “I just woke up and I felt a little clicking in my knee and a saw a little swelling the next day. They said I tore a little cartilage in there and they cleaned it out, and it actually felt better the next day after the surgery.”
Britt said that he is getting better and still hopes to be in the Titans lineup on opening day Sept. 9 against New England, provided, of course, that he isn't suspended by the league for a July 20 DUI in Fort Campbell, Ky.
