Tuesday injuries: Britt set to play

Kenny Britt is not only not on the Titans injury report, but he is back and practicing fully.
In fact, Britt might even be back in the starting lineup for Tennessee when they face the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night.

Britt has missed four games and five weeks with a hamstring injury, since suffering the injury on Oct. 31 early in the game against the San Diego Chargers.

“It looks like if he gets through tomorrow, he’ll be able to play,” Titans coach Jeff Fisher said. “How long? I don’t know. He’s had six weeks off, and you try to maintain the conditioning level several weeks after the injury after you start to heal. You just can’t duplicate the full speed, play after play after play. Conditioning very well could be an issue, so we’ll just have to watch it.”

As for whether Britt would start, Fisher said he had not decided yet, but Randy Moss, whose playing time Britt would likely cut into as the X receiver, sounded as if he is ready to alternate with Britt on Thursday night.

“I don't really know how it's going to work. I'm just hopeful Kenny can come out and pick up where he left off,” Moss said. “Him coming off a hamstring is a hard injury, especially for the position that we play. Alternating or whatever's going to help the team win a game it's what it's going to be. Hopefully, he can come out there and give us a spark and make some plays for us and we'll see what happens Thursday.”

Britt has seven receiving touchdowns this season, best on the club, which has not produced an offensive touchdown in 13 quarters.

As for other injuries, defensive tackles Tony Brown (knee) and Sen'Derrick Marks (ankle) did not practice Tuesday. Cornerback Ryan Mouton (hamstring) was out as well.

Defensive end Dave Ball was limited with a hip injury.
