Tennessee Titans receiver Kenny Britt had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Wednesday, but the team expects him back for the season opener against the New England Patriots. Britt tore his ACL and MCL last September. He had the surgery to accelerate his return. "It's almost become commonplace," Titans general manager Ruston Webster told reporters Wednesday after a speaking engagement. "It's not one of those things that was, 'Wow, we're having surgery.' It's very common, and if it helps his rehab process, it's well worth doing. Our goal is to have him play this year. You don't want to get into the middle of camp and (need to have surgery)."
