Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak sounds as if he is ready to take the wraps off Kenny Britt now in his second game back from his knee issues.
Britt played about 19 snaps in his return against San Diego after missing the season opener against New England because of a suspension.
Munchak is hoping Britt can become more of a difference maker to perhaps jazz up an offense that has been lacking in playmakers through the first two games – both lopsided losses.
“I think limitations are lifted. I think we just see how the game unravels,” Munchak said. “I think he’ll get an opportunity to obviously play more, and hopefully he’ll have a chance to contribute. Like you mentioned, run the field more, so he’ll get to play more and start making a difference that we think he can make.”
Britt ran more during Wednesday's practice, he said, than in Sunday's 38-10 loss to the San Diego Chargers, and took that as a sign that he is ready to try and find his old form as one of the NFL's top-tier receivers.
“To tell you the truth, it felt good after the game and it felt good after today's practice and I actually ran more today than I did in the game. I feel good,” Britt said. “Now it doesn't hurt when I get in and out of my breaks. It takes me less time to warm up. I'm getting back to my old self and I'm feeling good.”
Britt said he noticed that perhaps that his workload was going to increase when he stayed in for five straight plays on the practice field on Wednesday.
“I saw that in practice today. They had me in there five plays in a row, a few more routes. It felt good and I'm happy about it. Hopefully, I can help the team this week a little more than I did last week,” he said.
