As the Titans try to figure out what went wrong (and what went right . . . that list is shorter) in a 34-13 season-opening home loss to the Patriots, there’s good news.

Receiver Kenny Britt will be reinstated Monday, after serving a one-game suspension. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Britt currently is expected to be available for 20-to-25 snaps in Week Two, at San Diego.

Britt commands extra attention, which should open up the rest of the offense. That’s a positive for running back Chris Johnson, who was barely in positive yardage, with only four yards on 11 carries.

Also positive for the Titans is that coach Mike Munchak said after the game quarterback Jake Locker is fine after suffering a left shoulder injury while making a tackle on a turnover that was wiped out by replay review.
