Kenny Britt Injury:Tennessee Titans WR Could Need Additional Procedure

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt is on the road to recovery from a knee injury that prematurely ended his 2011 season, but not completely without complications. There is a possibility that Britt could require a second procedure on his knee before he is able to return to the field. If Britt does require a second surgery, it will be less serious than the first surgery he received on his ACL and MCL.

Titans coach Mike Munchak mentioned the possibility of a second surgery, and compared the situation to the one that Derrick Morgan went through last season with a knee injury.

"I don't know if he will at some point, but I think that's something that's common with that injury. Derrick went through it last year," Munchak said. "The good thing is that even if you do have it, it's not a huge setback."

Britt was very productive in his first two seasons with the Titans and was on pace to have the best year of his career through three games in 2011 before he picked up the injury that ended his season. The team hopes to have him back to the field for training camp and healthy to start the regular season.

Kenny Britt Injury: MRI Scheduled For Monday, Season Ending ACL Tear Feared

Kenny Britt has been far and away the most consistent offensive threat for the Tennessee Titans so far this season, but it appears that his season is going to be ended prematurely. Britt was taken out of Tennessee's game against the Denver Broncos in the second quarter after suffering a knee injury. He was taken off of the field on a cart and obviously did not return. The team has scheduled an MRI for Monday.

Though the MRI could confirm that the injury is not as bad as first feared, many people, including Adam Schefter of ESPN, believe that Britt's season will end with a serious ACL and MCL injury. If Britt tore both his ACL and MCL, he will almost certainly require season-ending surgery. A report on the NFL Network concluded that season-ending surgery is exactly what is expected for Britt this week.

Kenny Britt Injury: Britt Needs Season-Ending Surgery, Says NFL Network

The NFL Network is reporting that Kenny Britt will undergo season-ending surgery Monday. Britt was carted off the field after injuring his right knee Sunday against the Broncos.

Multiple reports have indicated that the team fears a possible torn ACL and/or MCL, although the team won’t know for sure the extent of the damage until Britt undergoes an MRI on Monday. But if the NFL Network’s report is true, it seems the team’s initial evaluation was all they needed to see.

After Sunday’s game, Britt was able to walk out of LP Field, wearing a brace on his injured knee. Not surprisingly, he apparently wasn’t in the mood to discuss his situation. "My status is limping," he told reporters.

Titans head coach Mike Munchak had a bit more to say, but none of it was positive. "Obviously, it didn’t look good when he got hurt," he said. "We will have to wait until tomorrow to see the extent of that."

We’ll continue to monitor Britt’s situation, and update this StoryStream as more information is available.
