NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Although summer’s official start is a couple weeks away, Titans receiver Kenny Britt has already put more than a toe in the water.
Britt is trying to return from a torn ACL and MCL before the start of his fourth season, and part of his recovery has involved running in the pool. He said the aquatic training has helped him because of the buoyancy the water provides.
“Running in the pool, you relieve all the pressure of your body weight,” Britt said. “When you’re on the field, it’s all your body weight and all your pressure. The water helps you relieve all that pain and all that weight, so it felt good. I’m going to test it out on the field (today).”
Britt has shown explosive play-making abilities in his first three years. He led the AFC in receiving yards (271) and had three touchdowns after the first two games last season, but suffered the season-ending knee injury against Denver in Week 3.
