Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt was found not guilty in a driving under the influence case that stemmed from a 2012 arrest.
Huddle Up: The league may still have a sit-down with Britt, who is all too familiar with the commissioner's office given his litany of off-field transgressions. But absent any sort of legal sanction Britt will likely dodge serious league repercussions as well.

A New Jersey police spokesman said that police still think Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt can provide them with information about a stabbing and shooting that took place last month, and Britt is still declining to do so. "Mr. Britt has ignored our request for a meeting to discuss additional questions the JCPD has pertaining to the investigation," police captain Edgar Martinez said. Britt's attorney, Robert Lane, has said that police told him Britt was not a suspect in the stabbing or shooting and that there was no chance of Britt being arrested.
Huddle Up: You'd think that given all his experience dealing with the law that Britt would be more cooperative. Now it looks like this will drag on for a while without resolution. You can probably find a book in Vegas that is laying odds as to what happens first: this case being resolved, Britt getting injured, or Britt running afoul of the law himself. It's a long offseason, smart money has to be on Britt getting arrested.

Tennessee Titans general manager Ruston Webster said he expects more from WR Kenny Britt in 2013, both on and off the field. As Britt enters the final year of his contract, Webster made it clear that he is on the spot to produce more.
Huddle Up: Britt's 45-589-4 season of a year ago didn't cut it, and neither will any more off-field issues. Britt simply has shown much more potential in previous seasons -- and the Titans are going to hold the wideout to those standards before thinking about any kind of contract extension.

Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt could be entering the final year with the team because the Titans may not be willing to sign him to a long-term contract due to several questionable off-field incidents during his career.
Huddle Up: Due to injuries and off-field issues that have sidetracked the talented wideout, Britt never has had more than 45 catches or 775 yards in a season and barring a big 2013, it certainly sound to reason he could be playing for a new team in 2014.

The brother of Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt was stabbed early Sunday, Jan. 13, during an altercation in New Jersey, and police want to question the receiver. Britt dropped off his wounded brother at the hospital, but was uncooperative with officers when asked what happened, police said. Britt was at the scene or had just left the scene when a gunshot was fired at an apartment building, according to police.
Huddle Up: Trouble seems to follow Britt, which makes him difficult to invest in him as a reliable fantasy producer. Depending on his involvement with this incident, it could also earn him a visit to Roger Goodell's offense and another suspension.

Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt (knee) fully participated in practice Saturday, Dec. 15, and is listed as probable for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Britt is the Titans' WR you want as he has recorded 13 catches for 208 yards and 2 scores over his past 3 games.

Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt (knee) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 28.
Huddle Up: Health hasn't been an issue for Britt since early in the season when he missed 2 of the team's first 4 contests, but he's just been another guy in the Titans' pass-catching logjam. He did catch a TD pass in Week 12, but it was only his second of the season. Bottom line: Britt is just too hard to trust on a week-to-week fantasy basis.

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said WR Kenny Britt (knee) undergoes an MRI on his knee each week but does not think he has any new injury. Munchak said Britt is dealing with soreness in his knee.
Huddle Up: And the Kenny Britt saga continues.

Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt (knee) practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 24.
Huddle Up: Britt now has played in 5 of the Titans' 7 games but hasn't led the squad in receiving in any of them, while fellow wideouts Nate Washington, Kendall Wright and Damian Williams all have taken their turns. Britt has another good matchup this week against the Colts, so maybe this is the week he'll start to re-establish himself as the Titans' top target.

Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 10, and is listed probable for Week 6.
Huddle Up: This is great news for anyone who has stuck with Britt this whole time. He was a fantasy monster last season in his short, healthy stint before injury shelved him for the season, and Matt Hasselbeck was his quarterback. While Britt has not done much when on the field this season, perhaps a change at quarterback will help.

Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt (knee) not only practiced in full Tuesday, Oct. 9, but he expressed confidence after the session. 'Today I felt the most confident I have in this whole year and this whole season to tell you the truth,' Britt said. 'With my eyes, finding the ball when (QB Matt Hasselbeck) was throwing it, especially coming over the big linemen. So I'm definitely getting back to where I was last year.'
Huddle Up: Britt has played in 3 of the team's 5 games so far, recording nine catches for 83 yards and no TDs on 18 targets. With the Titans' offense sputtering and under the direction of No. 2 QB Matt Hasselbeck for another week, they most definitely are in need of a spark. As for Britt's fantasy owners, it might be best to leave the wideout on your bench until you see him regain more of his previous form.

Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt (ankle) missed practice Friday, Oct. 5, and is questionable for the team's Week 5 game.
Huddle Up: He has been a non-factor when he has been on the field thus far, and missing a week's worth of practice cannot help, particularly because he is dealing with a new quarterback in Matt Hasselbeck. Stay away from Britt this week if at all possible.

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said WR Kenny Britt has some work to do if he is to play in Week 5. Britt was limited to individual drills in practice Wednesday, Oct. 3. "He's taken the next step as far as being on the field and running again," Munchak said. "How he responds tomorrow and how much more he can do tomorrow... There's no doubt he's going to have to improve the next couple of days to help us on Sunday. But at least he's headed in the right direction." Britt has missed 19 of the 52 games since the Titans drafted him in 2009.
Huddle Up: And that is perhaps the most telling stat regarding Britt: he's missed almost 40 percent of his team's games. He's battling the ankle injury, he's not all that far removed from knee surgery, and even though he may be headed in the right direction you have to cross your fingers and hope he's not over the legal limit in case he's pulled over while going that direction. While there is definite upside to Britt's game, at this juncture the risks have a commanding lead.

Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 3.
Huddle Up: Britt appeared to be getting back on track with 6 catches for 55 yards in Week 3 -- his second game of the season -- but then the ankle injury cropped up and sidelined him in Week 4. His fantasy owners should be making other lineup plans until further notice.
Posted: 9/28/2012 2:28pm et
Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 28, and is listed as questionable for Week 4. Head coach Mike Munchak said there is a chance Britt will be able to play even though he has not practiced this week.
Huddle Up: Receivers can perform well without practicing (see: Hakeem Nicks, Calvin Johnson), but things are not looking up for Britt, who has missed the entire week. He has not exactly lit up the fantasy realm when active this season either, making him a risky start if he happens to go. Advice: start a more reliable player, even if the upside isn't there.

Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt did not practice Thursday, Sept. 27.
Huddle Up: Britt is battling an ankle injury, and unless he's able to get back on the practice field Friday his availability for Sunday's game in Houston is in jeopardy.
Posted: 9/26/2012 5:57pm et
Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 26.
Huddle Up: Britt injured his ankle last week in just his second game back from a major knee injury. It's not clear if Britt will miss any time, but this could be an indicator that he will sit this weekend. The injury-prone receiver is back to frustrating owners once again; hopefully this is minor.
Posted: 9/26/2012 12:25pm et
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said Tuesday, Sept. 25, in a radio interview that WR Kenny Britt is "rapidly improving." Munchak expects Britt to practice before the end of the week.
Huddle Up: Britt is currently nursing a sore ankle, but if he practices before the end of the week it's safe to plan on him for the Titans' game in Houston on Sunday.

Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt (ankle) said Monday, Sept. 24, that he is just a 'little sore,' after rolling his ankle in the Week 3 game against the Detroit Lions. Britt said he expects to be OK.
Huddle Up: Britt stepped up his production in his second game back, catching 6 passes for 55 yards on 11 targets before leaving late in the contest with a sprained ankle. After serving a one-game disciplinary suspension in the opener, Britt had one catch for 5 yards in Week 2. Barring any lingering ankle problems, expect Britt to continue his progression.
Posted: 9/17/2012 7:44pm et
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said WR Kenny Britt (knee) came out of the team's Week 2 game fine.
Huddle Up: The Titans are bringing Britt along slowly. Even with the Chargers well ahead for most of Sunday's game, Britt only had 1 reception for 5 yards on 2 targets. Expect his targets and production to incrementally increase going forward.
Posted: 9/14/2012 2:45pm et
Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt (knee) is good to go for Week 2. Head coach Mike Munchak said Britt had a good week of practice.
Huddle Up: This is good news for the Titans as Nate Washington looks like he could be out for Sunday's game. Munchak said earlier this week that Britt would be limited in the game, but Washington's injury could mean a bigger role for Britt.
Posted: 9/13/2012 11:38am et
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said he expects WR Kenny Britt to play 15 to 25 snaps in Week 2. There will be no rush to load him with responsibilities in his first game back.
Huddle Up: The Titans have Nate Washington, Damian Williams, and rookie Kendall Wright holding down the receiver position so they can afford to bring Britt back slowly. Let him get some snaps in before plugging him back into your fantasy lineup.
Posted: 9/11/2012 11:49pm et
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak indicated that WR Kenny Britt (knee) would probably play 12-15 snaps against the New England Patriots in Week 1 if he were eligible. He later was suspended one game by the NFL. He might play about the same, or perhaps a little more, in Week 2 against the San Diego Chargers. 'Again, that's hard to project. You just never know,' Munchak said. 'We'll see how he does as we ease him into the practice schedule. We'll just say he's available to play on Sunday and then we'll take it from there.'
Huddle Up: Britt, who was officially reinstated by the Titans on Tuesday after serving his 1-game NFL-mandated suspension in Week 1, can expect to be thrown into the Titans' WR mix Sunday. Four Tennessee WRs caught at least 2 passes in Week 1 with rookie Kendall Wright and Damian Williams hauling in 5 apiece. When Britt rounds back into game shape, though, he will be the Titans' No. 1 target.
Posted: 8/30/2012 9:16pm et
Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt will be suspended one game by the NFL. He says he will not appeal.
Huddle Up: There had better not be an appeal coming after the wideout got off with a slap on the wrist following eight run-ins with the law since joining the Titans in 2009. As a result, Britt's fantasy stock gets a bump with only his recovery from offseason knee surgery to really worry about without a 3- or 4-game suspension tacked on as well.
Posted: 8/28/2012 8:00pm et
Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt (knee) looks good in practice, according to head coach Mike Munchak, and the wideout was taken off the team's preseason Physically Unable to Perform list on Tuesday.
Huddle Up: That's one big hurdle out of the way for the standout wideout, who has undergone no fewer than 3 knee procedures over the past 10 months. Now there's only one bit of unsettled business for Britt, and that's waiting for the expected disciplinary suspension to be handed down by the NFL.
Posted: 8/24/2012 8:31pm et
Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak is expecting to hear from the league on the status of WR Kenny Britt before the team makes final cuts next week.
Huddle Up: It's been a matter when and not if the league would discipline Britt, and it finally sounds like we've narrowed down the timetable.
Posted: 8/24/2012 6:37pm et
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league does not have any timetable on a possible suspension for Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt but the situation is still under review.
Huddle Up: This puts any owners who are drafting this weekend in a bit of a pickle. Britt could be suspended for any amount of time, making him an incredibly risky draft pick in the first few rounds. He has top-tier talent if he can stay on the field, but he is not worth anything above a sixth round pick because of his legal woes, never mind that he is returning from a major knee injury.
Posted: 8/20/2012 12:41am et
Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt said Sunday, Aug. 19, that he has yet to hear from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell concerning possible discipline for off-field incidents.
Huddle Up: No word yet doesn't mean Britt is off the hook by any means. Expect some sort of discipline announcement soon for the wideout, who has had no fewer than eight run-ins with the law over the past three years. Britt also is recovering from surgeries on both knees, so one way or another, expect the WR to miss some games this September. Britt currently has an ADP of 28 among receivers, and that sounds about right for the talented but troubled Titan.
Posted: 8/17/2012 12:20pm et
Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt is likely to be suspended by the league, but his suspension isn't expected to be for a lengthy period of time.
Huddle Up: Britt is likely looking at a one- or two-game suspension courtesy of Roger Goodell. He's also coming back from multiple offseason knee procedures, so there are plenty of red flags surrounding his fantasy value. Meanwhile, rookie Kendall Wright continues to develop a rapport with expected starter Jake Locker. Eventually Britt's fantasy value may fall to the point where he's worth the risk, but right now he's mostly an unwise gamble.

Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt (knee) sent out a photo and message on Instagram bemoaning a $9,915 fine from the team over a missed mandatory training session Tuesday, Aug. 7. "Yu gotta be (expletive) kidding me. Walk back to dis. Don't dey know I have kids. I'm tired of dis (expletive)," Britt posted , along with a photo which showed the fine, the amount and the reason.
Huddle Up: If you were wondering why the seemingly deep at receiver Titans spent an early pick on Kendall Wright, Britt is bringing it into sharp focus for you. He's proving to be a real triple threat: he could miss games due to injury, the league could suspend him, and now his team might tire of his antics and upgrade from a fine to a suspension as well.
Posted: 8/8/2012 10:18pm et
Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt posted a photo of a letter from the Titans organization that informed him of a $9,915 team fine for an unexcused mandatory scheduled appointment with a trainer.
Huddle Up: Britt just returned from his visit with Roger Goodell in New York and allegedly skipped his knee treatment. He posted a lovely rant on his Instagram account: "Yu gotta be (expletive) kidding me.. walk back to dis.. Donât dey know I have kids .. Iâm tired of did (expletive)." It seems he's purposely trying to miss half the season, bad knees or not. Beware of this Britt cat, he's not in the right state of mind.
Posted: 8/5/2012 10:32pm et
Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt is headed to New York, and he will meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell Monday, Aug. 6. It will be determined then whether Britt faces disciplinary action from the league for his July 20 arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence.
Huddle Up: All signs point to a suspension for the talented but troubled Britt, who also is dealing with other issues this preseason. The wideout is recovering from three knee surgeries in the past 9 months and is on the Titans' PUP list. Keep moving Britt down your WR rankings.
Posted: 7/25/2012 8:53pm et
The Tennessee Titans have placed WR Kenny Britt (knee) on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Huddle Up: Camp PUP is not a big deal in most cases, though with his three knee surgeries in nine months it's a clear sign that Britt's nowhere near 100 percent healthy. His ADP has dropped from the sixth to seventh round in one week. Look for Britt to drop another round very quickly.
Posted: 7/20/2012 2:11pm et
Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt was arrested and charged with DUI Friday, July 20.
Huddle Up: As if the multiple knee surgeries weren't red flag enough, now Britt has this to deal with. Move Kendall Wright (current ADP in the 12th round) and Nate Washington (current ADP in Round 14) up your cheat sheets accordingly.
Posted: 7/17/2012 7:25pm et
Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt (knees) had a second knee surgery, this time on his left knee, in late June after he experienced swelling. Britt had surgery earlier in the year on his right knee after he tore his anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments last September.
Huddle Up: He actually had a second procedure on that right 'ACL' knee this offseason. That's three times doctors have had to go into his knees. This is unsettling. Nate Washington is looking like a bargain in the 10th to 12th round; though he'll climb sharply if the Britt news remains ominous.
Posted: 6/6/2012 12:33am et
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said WR Kenny Britt (knee) is expected to be limited at the start of training camp and could sit out the first two or three preseason games to protect his knee.
Huddle Up: Britt's ACL rehab hit a bump in the road when he had the right knee scoped on May 16. Munchak and GM Ruston Webster have said all the right things ("It was a minor procedure" and "It's not a huge setback") so we have to wait until August to learn more about Britt.
