The Tennessee Titans will be taking on the Houston Texans this afternoon, but will have to do so with the services of WR Kenny Britt. ESPN’s Adam Schefter announced this morning that Kenny Britt will be ruled out today due to an ankle injury. This ruling has not been made official yet, but sources have told Schefter that Britt will be out. Britt has only appeared in two games for the Titans this season and has recorded seven receptions on 13 targets for a paltry 60 yards and no scores. This move gives more value to Nate Washington, who also has seven receptions on 13 targets but for 185 yards, two scores and an impressive 26.4 yards per catch average. This move gives Washington more looks, but temper expectations from Washington going against the fourth ranked pass defense with the Houston Texans.
