Kenny Britt was seen running routes and catching passes after Tennessee Titans practice Wednesday, according to the team's official site. The fourth-year wide receiver is recovering from a torn ACL and MCL in Week 3 of the 2011 season. When asked when he might return to the team Britt responded, "sooner than you think."
Analysis: Head coach Mike Munchak told reporters that Britt's knees are holding up well, which is positive. The expectations is that the wideout returns in time for the regular season opener, with the best case scenario being an appearance in the team's final preseason game. Britt has WR1 potential. He went over 130 yards receiving in each of his first two games last year. Whether he can stay healthy is a major question mark, however, as is how well he will retain his athleticism coming off such a serious injury. Britt has the potential to pay off big dividends, and should come cheaper than similar targets on draft day.
