Kenny Britt had a second operation on his knee on Wednesday, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.
While the arthroscopic procedure is being downplayed as a minor surgery, it could still be a small setback for his recovery.
Britt, 23, caught just 17 passes for 289 yards and three touchdowns after suffering a season-ending injury (tore ACL and MCL) against the Denver Broncos in Week 3 of last season.

The 6-3, 215-pound former first-round pick (30th overall) in the 2009 NFL Draft had previously racked up 42 receptions and over 700 yards in each of his first two seasons with the Titans.
General Manager Ruston Webster called the operation commonplace and said that he still expects Britt to be ready to go at the start of the season. Nevertheless, Britt has had more than his fair share of off-the-field problems, and with the arrival of Kendall Wright, it’s possible that his days could be numbered in Nashville.
Last season, Damian Williams ree...

With Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt undergoing a second procedure on his knee this week, it looks like general manager Ruston Webster and the Titans will likely take things slow with Britt and knee once training camp begins.
Webster recently hinted that they may keep Britt from playing preseason games in order to help him get ready for their week one...
Kenny Britt is a Beast When Healthy.
It is never a good sign when a player coming off a serious knee injury has a second operation just months before the start of 2012 NFL season but that is precisely the case for Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt.
According the official twitter account of Titans beat reporter Jim Wyatt, “Kenny Britt is undergoing arthroscopic...
Last September, the Titans' star receiver, Kenny Britt, tore both his ACL and his MCL against the Denver Broncos, ending his 2011 season and putting 2012 in jeopardy. There's no doubt the team and Britt will be cautious with his rehab, and that's what likely led to Britt's decision to have arthroscopic surgery on his knew on Wednesday.
According to ESPN's...
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...

According to John Glennon of the Tennessean, Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt will undergo a second knee procedure today. Britt isn’t expected to experience much of a setback as he continues to recover from ACL surgery.
I would imagine that the only goal for Britt and the Titans at this point is for him to be ready for week one of the regular season.
Last year, even on short notice, the Tennessee Titans got more contributions from their rookies than they could have ever imagined.
First-year defensive tackles Jurrell Casey and Karl Klug quickly established themselves as the Titans best players at that position, with Klug even posting a team-best seven sacks as an unheralded fifth-round pick.
The Titans found a couple of keepers...
Tennessee Titans rookie Brandon Barden, an undrafted free agent out of Vanderbilt seemingly took a shot at his alma mater during the team’s recent rookie camp.
Barden was speaking to The Tennessean about fellow rookie Taylor Thompson, who originally committed to Vanderbilt but backed out and enrolled at SMU. While discussing Thompson’s change of heart, Barden had this to say...
Tennessee’s quarterback situation is frustrating. If Jake Locker wins the job, he has QB2 value with upside because of how well he played last season, his offensive supporting cast, and his rushing ability. However, it sounds like Matt Hasselbeck, for some reason, is the favorite for the job now. I wouldn’t recommend drafting him because he’s pretty mediocre and because he...
Under Jeff Fisher, the Titans were a run heavy, defense, field position team, but with Fisher gone, it appears they’ve gone in another direction. They spent a 1st round pick on a wide receiver, Kendall Wright, despite having 2 good under 30 ones, Kenny Britt and Nate Washington, and they also have a very good, young pass catching tight end in Jared Cook. They spent a 1st round...
Taylor Thompson is easily finding his groove as a tight end in Tennessee. Though he played defensive end for four years at SMU, his past experience at wide receiver in high school is serving him well with the Titans.
The Titans’ quarterback battle between Jake Locker and Matt Hasselbeck might be the most intriguing quarterback battle of the preseason for the sheer reason that both are solid quarterbacks and that the Titans might be the best team in the league with an unresolved quarterback situation. Hasselbeck is the proven veteran, but turns 37 in [...]
