Jeff Fisher sacrifices Friday night plans to look into Kenny Britt fight

Meet Jeff Fisher, full-time coach/part-time sleuth.

secretsquirrel.gifWhen Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt was involved in a nightclub brawl last Thursday in Nashville, his coach made like Secret Squirrel and did a little investigating at the Karma Lounge.

"Yes, I did go,'' Fisher told the Tennessean. "I went with the intention of getting as much information as I possibly could prior to making a decision on whether Kenny was going to play or not. I felt the best way was to go down there and see if I could find out on my own.''

Nashville police said the misdemeanor assault investigation continues and that Britt, who allegedly punched a patron in the fight, has not been charged. The NFL also is investigating whether Britt violated its personal conduct policy. "I am not going to go into details, but I did talk to people there," Fisher said. "And from what I was able to obtain, it was more clear that I needed to delay the decision.''

Smart move. Fisher held Britt out one quarter of Sunday's victory over Philadelphia. He caught seven passes for 225 yards (159 in the fourth quarter) and three touchdowns (two in the fourth quarter).
