Could Britt and Moss see action together?

Jeff Fisher said Friday that he will consider the possibility of having Kenny Britt and Randy Moss on the field together.

Britt returned to the lineup in Thursday's 30-28 Titans loss to the Indianapolis Colts and caught four passes in his first game since an Oct. 31 hamstring injury.

That cut Moss' playing time severely, as the veteran played only a handful of plays Thursday. They were on the field together for only one play just before the end of the first half when Nate Washington was shaken up briefly. Both players play the X or split end position, but Fisher said Britt might begin learning the Z position, or flanker.

“We've talked about that. With Kenny coming back, they play the same position. There's a chance something like that could happen down the stretch,” Fisher said.

As to why it would be Britt that would switch spots, Fisher said, “Randy is suited to be the split end. That's where he's played his whole career. It would be Kenny that would potentially move over and maybe get some time over there.

“Athletically, Kenny is better suited for the other position. It has nothing to do with Randy's football IQ. Randy could play any position on offense. He's a very, very smart guy. Kenny would be better suited, because that's the guy that's in motion and does all those other things.”

Fisher said he is pleased with Moss' efforts and attitude since the Titans grabbed him off waivers on Nov. 3.

“Randy has done everything that we've asked of him and more. Randy understood. Randy was encouraging his teammates and excited about the game and ready to play when he got the opportunity. There were no issues,” he said. “It was just one of those things, where Kenny was the starter at that position. He got hurt, he came back, and so we wanted to work him back in the game. As I said, there's always that chance that we could try to get them both on the field.”
