Kenny Britt's knee rehab impresses Tennessee Titans

A shell of his former self in 2012, contract-year wide receiver Kenny Britt was under the microscope when the Tennessee Titans jump-started workouts on Monday.

After training in California earlier this offseason, Britt impressed teammates with his conditioning and the state of his surgically repaired knee.

"He came back and looked great during workouts," quarterback Jake Locker said to the Tennessean on Monday. "It sounds like he really got on his rehab and got his knee feeling a lot better and I'm really excited about how he came back."

Cornerback Jason McCourty noted that the enigmatic wideout "looks like the normal Kenny Britt."

It's a great sign Britt's knee is at least passing the eyeball test. Coming off anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligament reconstruction in his right knee, a follow-up procedure and a meniscus tear on his left side, Britt lost his play-making ability last season.

Even in his aberrant eight-catch, 143-yard performance against the Indianapolis Colts in December, Britt's numbers were inflated by a pair of 46-yard bombs in which he failed to separate from coverage. That game accounted for a quarter of Britt's 589 receiving yards.

It's important for Britt to recapture his "special" pre-injury form in a make-or-break season for his Titans career. It's just as important that he stay out of the hoosegow for the rest of the offseason.
