Britt has surgery on other knee

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee at the end of June and might not be ready for the start of training camp.

Britt had already undergone surgery to repair the ACL and MCL on his right knee last October after suffering a season-ending injury. He also had a clean-up procedure on that knee in May. That came as a result of swelling in the knee from rehab work following the first surgery.

Britt’s latest surgery could wind up with him starting training camp on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. That list is for players who cannot pass their entrance physical upon reporting to the team for training camp. The Titans veterans report on July 27.

Players can be removed from that list at any time, once they past a physical and are deemed healthy enough to begin practicing. It is different from the regular-season PUP list where players must miss at least six weeks time while rehabbing from injuries.

Britt’s career as a Titan has been hampered first by hamstring injuries and now knee problems, as he has not played in all 16 games since his rookie season in 2009.
