Sources: Britt knee likely serious

The Tennessee Titans could be without wide receiver Kenny Britt for the foreseeable future after he suffered a right knee injury in the second quarter of Sunday's 17-14 victory over the Denver Broncos.

Sources close to the situation told TitanInsider that Britt's knee was “not good” after the game. Another described the injury as "bad," although none of the sources could say definitively, however, if the injury was to the ACL, it would be season-ending.

Britt said he was on his way to have an MRI performed on the knee to determine the exact of the damage to his knee.

After making a catch, Britt tried to run with the ball and was hit by Cassius Vaughn, who forced a fumble and recovered it. Britt had to be assisted to the sideline and was carted to the locker room.

In the locker room, Britt was wearing a brace on the knee, and said to
reporters as he limped out, “I'm OK. My status is, I'm limping.”

Britt had emerged as a go-to focal point of the offense over the first two games, catching 14 passes for 271 yards. Britt had two receptions for 17 yards on Sunday.

With Britt out, the Titans will have to turn to receivers Nate Washington, Lavelle Hawkins and Damian Williams. Washington stepped up to lead the Titans with eight catches for 92 yards.

The Titans may also have to look at some available receivers to fill in while Britt is sidelined.
