Tennessee Titans receiver Kenny Britt won't face any additional fine for his public photo and accompanying complaint about a fine on Instagram.
Coach Mike Munchak said he had not yet spoken to Britt on making the $9,915 fine for missing a mandatory rehab session on Tuesday public on Wednesday. Britt also complained about the fine, writing below the photo “"Yu gotta be (expletive) kidding me..Walk back to dis..Don't dey know I have kids..I'm tired of dis (expletive)"
Munchak the matter of the fine was private and he refused to divulge any details regarding what led to it.
“To be honest with you, I haven't read anything he wrote. I just know that he commented on the fact that he was upset, and I'll leave it at that,” Munchak said. “If something else comes of it, or if we feel that something is necessary to be done, then it'll be done. ...I don’t want to get into any details. The bottom line is he didn’t follow some rules. There are consequences and that’s it.”
Britt said he was at home on Tuesday, an off day for the team, and decided to spend time with his daughter rather than report to the facility for an ice down. Injured players are usually expected to be at the facility for any treatment and rehab necessary even on off days.
Britt is already facing trouble from the NFL. He spent Monday in New York with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell explaining his arrest on a DUI charge at Fort Campbell Army Post on July 20. It was his eight run-in with the law since the Titans drafted him in 2009, and he could be facing a suspension from the league after getting only a warning from the league last year.
Receiver Nate Washington, who saw the fine letter Britt received, said he is there for the receiver but that Britt is an adult who must make his own decisions.
“It is getting to a point with Kenny where I try to stay away from the personal,” Washington said. “When you have kids and your own grown life and you're living by yourself, you're a grown man. There's only so much people can say to you.”
