I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Tennessee Titans’ WR Kenny Britt has undergone yet another knee surgery, this time, on his left knee.
The Tennessean’s Jim Wyatt reported it about an hour ago. Apparently Britt underwent this other surgery after the end of OTAs when doctors said it would be best for Britt to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee after experiencing swelling in it.
The Titans are still optimistic that Britt will be back for the season opener against the Patriots but I certainly have my doubts about that. The Titans shouldn’t be in any hurry to rush this guy back onto the field, as much as he may want to be there.
It’s starting to look more and more likely that the Titans will be starting Washington, Wright, and Williams that first game, as well as leaning more heavily on Cook and Johnson. Hopefully that will be enough fire power to keep up with the Patriots high-octane offense. Britt may be able to see the field a few times but they’ll almost certainly be limiting his playing time.
That’s an unfortunate turn of events, as it sounded like Britt had been feeling pretty well up until this point. Hopefully Wright turns into some real trouble out there. Who knows what’s in store for Britt and his future.
