Could Suspension Benefit Kenny Britt?

Now no one every wants to see their teams star player get slapped with a suspension, but in Kenny Britt’s case, I think it’d be a good thing.

Britt is at eight run-ins with the law, just one short of what the notorious Pacman Jones racked up during his time as a Titan.

Obviously, we don’t want Britt to turn into the next Pacman and really, Britt just isn’t the same type of person as Pacman.

Getting in trouble isn’t Britt’s only problem, though. Britt has as big of an injury history as he does run-ins with the law. Players who can’t stay healthy have trouble staying in the league. Now I’m getting to the reason why a suspension could actually be beneficial to Britt.

The guys legs have always been a problem and after last years ACL tear and his recent surgeries, there are a lot of questions about if his legs will ever be durable. You certainly don’t want to rush this guy out on the field and risk him injuring his legs again. They need time to repair and I think a suspension is just what the doctor asked for.

Fans want Britt on the field and you know the Titans’ offense needs him out there, but when you think about what’s best for Britt’s body, it’s pretty obvious that it needs as much rest and recuperation as it can get. A suspension, whether it be for two, four, or even six games, gives his body some much needed rest.

I’m not happy with the fact the Kenny Britt is facing certain suspension, but I’m looking for that silver lining. It lies in the fact that this is Britt’s chance to get recoup just that much more.

Hopefully it’ll pay dividends.

    I agree. I’m not happy that he is in trouble again, but sit him down, teach him a lesson, and while that is happening, he can get fully healthy.

      Exactly. I think it’s very important that he learns the lesson this time. Hopefully it gets across. In the mean time, he can get healthy.
