SAN DIEGO - One week after the biggest game of his career, Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt's season may be on hold.
Britt said he heard a “pop” in his right hamstring as he was running a go route with 4:21 to play in the first quarter.
“I felt it pop when I was just running out there on that last couple of steps,” Britt said. “I had my hands out and it popped, and I knew I was down for the count right then and there.'
Britt was assisted off the field by trainers and did not see any more action. When the game was over, he was still limping noticeably in the locker room. He has an MRI scheduled for Monday morning to determine the extent of the damage to the leg, but is expected to miss significant time.
Britt had experienced tightness in his hamstring during practice this week, and on one occasion had to have the trainers stretch his leg to try and smooth out the muscle.
“I knew it had been tightening up throughout the course of the week,” Titans coach Jeff Fisher said.
As the Titans head into the bye week, they may be fearing the worst with their top receiver, but Britt is still hoping for the best.
“I'm hoping and I'm praying,” Britt said. “Tomorrow morning at eight o'clock, I'm gonna get an MRI on it and we'll see what happens.”
Britt had come off a seven-catch, 225-yard reception game with three touchdowns last week against Philadelphia, just two days after he had allegedly been involved in a night club fight and was held out of the game for four series.
