Titans place DE Dave Ball on IR in trimming to 53

The Titans made their final cuts knowing they will be without Britt for only one game after the NFL suspended him for his eighth incident with police, a driving while under the influence arrest July 20 at the Fort Campbell Army post on the Kentucky-Tennessee border. Britt met with NFL officials Aug. 5, his second meeting in New York at league headquarters within a year.

The punishment came quickly after the Titans activated Britt off the physically unable to perform list. Britt has been recovering from his third knee surgery within a year, the most recent an arthroscopic surgery on his left knee after two on the right knee he tore his ACL in September 2011.

Britt said after a 10-6 win over New Orleans to cap the preseason Thursday night that he's happy to be out with his teammates soon after training on his own during the week.

"What else would I be doing?" Britt said. "I'm going to get ready for that second game to help my team out and make sure to let them know that I'm ready to go. I believe that I'll be training somewhere around this area."

The Titans also waived tight ends Brandon Barden and Cameron Graham; defensive tackle Zach Clayton; guards Kyle DeVan and Michael Jasper; defensive tackle Lamar Divens; safeties Aaron Francisco and Tracy Wilson; center Chris Morris; defensive end Malcolm Sheppard; and fullback Collin Mooney.
