Kenny Britt missed practice for the second straight day today, and Mike Munchak said that he will not play Thursday night in the preseason finale against the Vikings. His knee is apparently swelling up- again. At this point you have to worry if this is going to be a weekly thing for Britt this year.
The good news, I guess, is that he was able to play in the first three games. This game is even more pointless than the other preseason games. The starters probably won't play more than a series or two (but that means we will get to see even more of Rusty in his last appearance in the two-toned blue!). It makes sense to go ahead and hold him out especially with the short turn around from Saturday night.
Hopefully this time off will have him 100% ready to go when the season starts next week(!).
