It looks like Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt will have to endure another season with his right knee at something less than 100 percent. At this point, maybe it’s time to realize that this is the long-term reality of the situation.

John Glennon of The Tennessean (yes, he’s back) reports that Britt has missed multiple training-camp practices because his right knee continues to swell. In Sep. 2011, Britt tore the ACL in his right knee. That required two surgeries. He underwent a third surgery on his other knee. In 2012, Britt was a shell of his former self. He didn’t have enough time to fully recover from all of his procedures.

Britt insists that his knee feels okay. Regardless, this doesn’t sound like a short-term issue. Head coach Mike Munchak expressed concerns over all the reps that he has missed—and will continue to miss—once the Titans get into their regular routine when the real games begin. Munchak claimed:

“I think every week it’s probably going to be a day (of missed practice) here and there, especially in camp. I think once we get in a normal week, he’ll probably practice two out of three (days).
