WR Avery to Get More Touches This Next Week?

The Tennessean reports that it appears that former Rams wide receiver Donnie Avery could start to get more chances when the Titans get back to work this week.

When the Titans lost wide receiver Kenny Britt to a season-ending knee injury, it was unrealistic to think the player replacing him on the roster would replace his production. The player the Titans signed — former Rams wide receiver Donnie Avery — is hoping he can help at some point. With 100 catches for 1,263 yards and eight touchdowns, Avery has solid career credentials. He said he’s ahead of schedule learning the playbook and is in good physical condition more than a year removed from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Munchak said the Titans plan to have the speedy Avery more involved in the final 11 games, but offensive coordinator Chris Palmer admitted the 2008 second-round pick is in a tough situation. “It is hard when they come in during the season because they are so far behind the other guys,” Palmer said. “He has skills that we like, and we are going to continue to work with him. He got some plays (against the Steelers), and I think he’ll continue to get more plays.”
