NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Kenny Britt's right knee buckled underneath him, and the Tennessee receiver dropped the ball in pain before being carted off the field.

Britt, who came in leading the AFC with 271 yards receiving, left the stadium wearing a brace on his right knee with tests to determine the severity of the damage expected by Monday. Britt only said that his status is "limping" as he walked by reporters.

The Titans (2-1) outgained Denver 333-231 with Hasselbeck again carrying the offense. He also threw a 14-yard TD pass to Nate Washington as the Titans scored 10 straight points in the second quarter for a 10-7 halftime lead.

Titans coach Mike Munchak credited Hasselbeck with spreading the ball around.

"We lost Kenny, and he's got a lot of young receivers out there having to change positions so there's a lot going on out there," Munchak said. "Not many quarterbacks could have handled that (the loss of Britt) as well as he did and make plays the way he did. He's exactly what we hoped he'd be."

Washington, who had a career-high eight catches, said he was very concerned about Britt.

"We have to put some things together that are going to try to make up for things that he was able to do for us. But I think we are going to be all right. Hopefully, he will be able to sit down and kick his feet up, and we'll be able to hold on until he gets healthy," Washington said.
