Britt posted career highs in receptions (68), targets (111) and yards (1,002) despite dealing with mostly dreadful quarterback play this past season. While that success makes the timing of Britt's impending free agency rather opportune, new Rams coach Sean McVay may prefer to pursue more consistent receiving threats, including a pair of wideouts he coached in Washington, DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon. That scenario would likely result in Britt signing elsewhere, potentially giving the 28-year-old a chance to pair with a more reliable quarterback, but likely within an offense less dependent on Britt to cover its deficiencies.
Britt (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's Week 17 tilt versus the Rams, Myles A. Simmons of the team's official site reports.
Britt was doubtful heading into Sunday, so the designation comes as little surprise. The veteran receiver wraps up 2016 with career highs in receptions (68) and yards (1,002). In his stead, Tavon Austin, Brian Quick and Pharoh Cooper would figure to be the top targets for Jared Goff.
Britt (shoulder) is listed as doubtful to play Sunday against the Cardinals.
Britt didn't practice at all this week, so his 2016 campaign is likely to end with a career-high 68 receptions on 11 targets for 1,002 yards and five touchdowns in 15 appearances. If he's indeed unavailable Sunday, Brian Quick would figure to be promoted to a starting wideout position.
Britt (shoulder) was a non-participant at practice Wednesday, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.
Britt carried a shoulder injury into Saturday's game against the 49ers and lasted just one half before he was ruled out with one catch for 15 yards to his name. The Rams' No. 1 wide receiver is a candidate to take a seat in Week 17, as a loss to the Cardinals would guarantee a top-6 selection in the 2017 draft. His activity level (or lack thereof) in the coming days will shed light on such an eventuality.
Interim head coach John Fassel said Monday that Britt (shoulder) will be day-to-day this week, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.
Britt's prep for Week 16 was hindered by a shoulder injury, but he toughed it out Saturday versus the 49ers before leaving the game by halftime. If he's able to suit up Sunday against the Cardinals, he'll look to expand upon career highs across the board outside of touchdowns, as his five scores are four short of the nine he gathered in as a Titan in 2010.
