Kenny Britt Injury: Ex-Rutgers Star Out For Season

Kenny Britt of the Tennessee Titans, formerly a star wide receiver for the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, will miss the remainder of the NFL season after suffering tears to both the MCL and ACL in his right knee. 

Britt, in his third season, was leading the AFC in receptions with 14 entering Sunday's game against Denver. He caught three passes for 18 yards against the Broncos, suffering the injuries while dodging a tackler on the final reception. Bitt, 23, will undergo season-ending surgery.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Britt, a Bayonne, N.J. native, appeared headed for a breakout season. He caught 42 passes in each of his first two seasons with Tennessee, and had emerged as the No. 1 target for new quarterback Matt Hasselbeck in the new Titans' offense designed by offensive coordinator Chris Palmer.

The folks at SB Nation's Titans' website, Music City Miracles, are doing their best to put a positive spin on this news. There is no good way to look at this, though -- for the Titans, or for Britt.
