NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Titans receiver
The fifth-year receiver went without a catch in last week's 20-17 win over the Chargers where he was sidelined during the game-winning drive.
Britt said Wednesday that his confidence in himself has not been shaken at all.
"All I have to do is put my mind to it,'' Britt said.
The Titans' top draft pick in 2009 out of Rutgers, Britt put up some nice numbers in his first two seasons leading the team with 1,476 yards and tying for the team lead with 12 touchdowns. He stayed out of trouble off the field this offseason, and Britt looked ready to take advantage of his size at 6-foot-3 and 223 pounds giving Locker a big physical target.
Playing in the final year of his contract, Britt insists that worry about his future is not distracting him.
"I don't even think about that when I'm on the field, when I'm at practice or in this locker room with the other guys like that,'' Britt said. "None of the outside stuff bothers me. You know what? It's more just staying in the moment and looking the ball in instead of ... try to catch and turn around and run before you catch the ball.''
Britt's coach and teammates remain confident he'll bounce back.
Coach Mike Munchak, offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains and receivers coach Shawn Jefferson all have talked with Britt. Munchak said Britt had a great week of practice last week after all the attention generated by his posts on Twitter only to have dropped passes and penalties in the game.
"That's frustrating,'' Munchak said. "You've got to not give up on what you're doing. Believe in your work ethic, believe in yourself and come out there this week and change the script.''
Munchak also said the Titans (2-1) can't force throws to the receiver and won't go to Britt just to help him.

"He's hit a rough spot,'' Washington said of Britt. "It's happened to all of us. He is going to remain confident, and he'll bounce back. He'll start hearing the cheers again and cause people to forget about what happened in the past.''
Britt officially was listed Wednesday with neck and ribs on the injury report. Fans cheered the receiver when he walked off the field after landing on his neck, shoulder and then back after having his legs taken out from under him after going up high for a ball he didn't catch.
The Titans need Britt against the Jets (2-1), who are holding opponents to 270 total yards offense.
"I have faith in everything I can do and in my God-given abilities,'' Britt said.
NOTES: Britt was one of six Titans who did not practice Wednesday. RB
