Vince Young hurt in Titans game

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP)—Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young(notes) left the game midway through the first quarter on Monday night when he fumbled the snap and Terrance Knighton(notes) of the Jacksonville Jaguars fell on his left leg.

Young, who threw a 23-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Britt(notes) on the opening drive, was helped off the field. The Titans said he sprained his left knee, and it was questionable if he would return.

He was replaced by Kerry Collins(notes).

Two years ago at Jacksonville, the Jaguars knocked Young out of the game in the season opener. Collins replaced him, the Titans went on to win the game and he took them to the playoffs. The year was memorable for Young going into a deep funk.

The door cracks for Rusty to play in an NFL game?

Doubtful. Collins it too solid of a backup. Hopefully none of you guys are planning on any "accidents" to happen in the Collins household. . .

Collins is solid, that is why they are paying that huge "insurance" premium for him. But does Rusty move up to the active roster or do they bring in another qb? After all Collins is solid but he is still the qb who "led" the Titans to an 0-6 start last year and got benched by the owner, and he is a year OLDER than last year. All anyone can say now is we shall see very soon.

“I’m day-to-day,” said Young. “I’m a fast healer.  I’m a strong healer.”

It is possible he will not miss any time…

True,

Its conceviable that VY will be day to day for the next game. It all depends on how he progresses.

If he isnt strong enough I would imagine that Rusty would be marked Active for the next game but wouldnt see any time unless of course Collins got hurt.

To be honest, I dont think it would be good for Rusty to get in this year. Hes still adapting to the pro game and a full year on the Scout teams would help him better then sporadic starts IMHO.

Re: Vince Young hurt in Titans game

I agree with owlfamily. I think they'd find a back up. Would love to see Rusty in an NFL game but why hurry it. He's got time to develop and learn from Collins and VY

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

Both Vince Young and Kerry Collins sat out practice today. Vince with his sprain and Kerry Collins with a hurt middle finger. Sounds like Rusty got all the reps.  ;D

Young left early in Monday night's 30-3 rout of Jacksonville, and tests showed a mild sprain in his left knee. He also has a sprained ankle and walked around with a limp during a walkthrough Wednesday.

Collins, who was 11 of 16 for 110 yards and a touchdown Monday, did not practice because of an ailing middle finger. The veteran banged his right hand in the third quarter of the win but expects to be ready if Young can't play.

If neither quarterback is available, the Titans could look to Rusty Smith, a sixth-round draft pick out of Florida Atlantic.

"Either way, a job has to get done. We're confident in all three of our quarterbacks," receiver Nate Washington said. "Whoever has to be in there, we're not too much worried about it."

Should Smith get that improbable nod, Tennessee will likely lean heavily on All-Pro running back Chris Johnson as it tries to break a three-way tie for the AFC South lead.

Quarterback Vince Young (knee/ankle) did not practice on Thursday. It’s uncertain whether he’ll practice Friday or play on Sunday.

Quarterback Kerry Collins (finger) led the team practice on Thursday and said he felt good afterward.
[hr]

Hope VY is a scratch on Sunday, and Rusty takes the backup role behind Collins.
