Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt is on the comback trail from torn ligaments in his right knee, but there might be a detour ahead, coach Mike Munchak said.

Munchak said the second surgery would be to "clean up" scar tissue and is similar to the post-ACL repair surgery scope done on former first round pick Derrick Morgan.

"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," Munchak said.

Britt tore the ACL and MCL in his right knee against the Broncos on Sept. 25, 2011. Surgery to repair both ligaments was performed nine days later.

The team's most talented receiver, Britt has encountered off-the-field issues and the Titans are more equipped to take the field without him if necessary after drafting Kendall Wright in the first round of the 2012 draft.

Nate Washington emerged as Matt Hasselbeck's No. 1 target last season, posting career highs with 74 receptions, 1,023 yards and seven touchdowns. Tight end Jared Cook (49-759-3) also had a career year.

it's explosive, big-play ability that makes Britt special. He averaged 17.0 yards per reception in 2011 before he was injured, logging 17 receptions for 289 yards and three touchdowns in just over two-and-a-half games.
