The Tennessee Titans wide receiver missed Wednesday's practice and his absence is related to an injury, according to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean. There is no word yet on whether Britt's absence affects his status for the team's Week 4 game against the New York Jets.
Fantasy impact: it is not immediately known what kind of injury Britt may have sustained that caused him to miss practice. That said, fantasy owners should not assign his absence to any kind of speculation related to trade talk, as that is not in play here.
For what it's worth, Britt has rarely, if ever, played up to his potential in real life or fantasy football. Part of that can be attributed to injuries and part of that is a result of problems off of the field.
Even if Britt does play, fantasy owners should consider two key factors. First, Kendall Wright is looking like the team's top receiver after three games, catching 15 passes for 136 yards and a touchdown so far this season. By contrast, Britt had no catches and played just 38 snaps in a Week 3 win over the San Diego Chargers. Stay tuned to see if Britt practices on Thursday and Friday before making any final roster decisions.
