Tennessee Titans Receiver Britt to Miss Season With Torn Ligaments in Knee
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt will miss the rest of the National Football League season after tearing two ligaments in his right knee, coach Mike Munchak said today in a press conference.
Britt, 23, tore the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in the second quarter of the team’s 17-14 victory over the Denver Broncos yesterday. He will have season-ending surgery, Munchak said.
A native of Bayonne, New Jersey, and former All-American at Rutgers University, Britt was selected by the Titans with the No. 30 pick in the 2009 draft. He had 17 catches for 289 yards and three touchdowns before the injury and was on pace to break his career high in all three categories.
The Titans are 2-1, tied with the Houston Texans for first in the American Football Conference South division. Britt’s injury leaves the team with four receivers.
