The Tennessee Titans have removed receiver Kenny Britt from the physically unable to perform list, though he will not play Thursday night in the team's preseason finale against New Orleans.
Coach Mike Munchak said after practice Tuesday they were close to activating Britt, and the team announced the move 3 three hours later.
Britt will join the active roster Wednesday, allowing him to take part in any practice or session the Titans might have before Thursday night.
The receiver has been recovering from his third knee surgery since tearing his right ACL last September. He had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in late June.
Both Britt and the Titans are waiting to hear from the NFL if he faces punishment for a driving under the influence arrest in July.
