Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Brittreturned to practice on Thursday. It's his first practice of the week after sitting out on Wednesday. He was listed as limited, but is expected to play in Sunday's game against the New York Jets.
Britt suffered a fractured rib and shoulder injury after taking a hard fall in last week's win over the San Diego Chargers. He failed to record a single catch in the game. Britt has just five catches for 43 yards on the season.
Fantasy impact: Britt is going to try playing through the cracked rib, but his injury may give the Titans an excuse to get rookie Justin Hunter more involved in the offense. Britt has been a disaster this season, struggling with drops and penalties.
Hunter's first catch of the season ended up being the game-winning touchdown over the Chargers, and quarterback Jake Locker personally asked to get him in on the final drive. He's worth picking up as a bench flier in deeper fantasy leagues. Britt should be dropped in all formats. He's not in the Titans' plans anymore.
