I want to believe in Kenny Britt . Reporters at Titans camp this summer talked all about how he looks healthy and explosive and whatever. But then there's stuff like this: For the past few weeks, Britt has been bothered by swelling in his surgically repaired right knee multiple times. He won't play in the team's fourth preseason game Thursday, but head coach Mike Munchak said Tuesday that he's not concerned.
Britt tore the ACL in that knee in 2011.
We have gotten glimpses of a fully healthy Britt, and he has been a pure game-changer. Last year was written off as he just wasn't fully recovered from ACL surgery. But it's fair to wonder if he has been forever changed for the worse at the age of 24. This swelling is just the start; I have a feeling I will be writing a lot of injury notes about Britt once again this season. That, other than Jake Locker's inconsistencies as a quarterback, is the biggest reason why I have gone from a Britt supporter to a Britt abandoner.
