Titans' Munchak says Kenny Britt might need second procedure

The Tennessee Titans were hoping Kenny Britt could move past his 2011 season in which he tore the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his right knee in the third game of the season.

But Titans coach Mike Munchak acknowledged on Sunday that Britt might require a second procedure on his knee, comparing the wide receiver's predicament to that of defensive end Derrick Morgan. After missing all but four games in 2010 because of a torn ACL, Morgan had arthoscopic surgery in training camp last year.

"I think it always is (possible)," Munchak said, according to Titan Insider. "I don't know if he will at some point, but I think that's something that's common with that injury. Derrick went through it last year."

"The good thing is that even if you do have it, it's not a huge setback. It's not something that sets you way back. But that is obviously part of the process, or could be, if that arises down the road."

Britt was the Titans' leading receiver in both 2009 and 2010. He caught 17 passes for 289 yards and three touchdowns in the three games he played before he was injured.

"He's been doing well, running hard, and we'll just have to see how the knee responds," Munchak said.
