Titans head coach Mike Munchak said a couple of days ago that Kenny Britt 's ankle injury was "improving rapidly." Now it seems like Britt is no longer improving and his recovery has plateaued. Considering he's already dealt with lengthy knee and hamstring maladies during his young career, Britt is not happy one bit.
"Very frustrating, very frustrating," Britt said Thursday. "It's like something I can't get right, injury after injury. The last healthy season I had was my rookie year and ever since then it was just a downfall. It is something I can't control. The only thing I can control is my rehab and trying to get back as soon as possible."
Britt didn't practice Thursday and has yet to practice this week. When asked if he'll play Sunday against the Texans, he said "It's possible. There's no counting me out. "I am not counting myself out."
Ugh. I just don't like the way this sounds. We'll see if Britt can practice on Friday, but it appears that he is not close to 100 percent. If he can't play, bump up expectations for Kendall Wright and Nate Washington for a game in which the Titans will probably have to throw often.
