Titans GM says WR Britt on track to return by preseason

Tennessee Titans general manager Ruston Webster said this week that wide receiver Kenny Britt is recovering well from the knee injury that prematurely ended his season, and should be ready by the start of the preseason.

"Kenny's been working hard, and he's coming fast, probably even a little faster than I thought he would, so I'm real happy about that," the general manager said. "We expect to have him out there for training camp.

"The good thing about this injury, if there was a good thing, is it happened early. And he's a very strong young man and bounces back pretty quickly from these things."

Britt had surgery on the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments that he tore in September, knocking him out for the rest of the 2011 season.

Prior to his injury, Britt had recorded 17 catches for 289 yards and three touchdowns in three games.

Since being picked in the first round by the Titans in the 2009 NFL Draft, Britt has 101 catches for 1,765 yards and 15 touchdowns in three seasons.

The Titans have also reportedly started talking to defensive lineman Jason Jones about extending his contract, according to the website Titan Insider. The team recently re-signed receiver Lavelle Hawkins, tight end Craig Stevens and offensive tackle Mike Otto.
