Titans’ Young aggravates knee, leaves practice

Titans QB Vince Young aggravated his injured right knee during practice Thursday and was unable to finish the session. Young originally hurt the knee during last weekend’s loss to the Colts.

Titans coach Jeff Fisher called it a setback and said Young would be evaluated again Friday. The coach didn’t sound concerned that Young wouldn’t be able to start against the 1-11 Rams on Sunday.

“Vince injured his knee in the game, which I think you’re all aware of,” Fisher told reporters, according to The Nashville City Paper. “He’s been trying to push through practice. He just had a little setback, and we just shut him down. He just had a setback, and we’ll tend to him inside and see how he is tomorrow.”

Young limped off the practice field with ice wrapped over his knee. He tweaked it while throwing a pass to Lavelle Hawkins, then walked to the sideline and laid down on the ground. A trainer and a doctor checked out the knee.

Veteran starter-turned-backup Kerry Collins, who started the first six games of the season, finished practice with the first-team offense.

“If I’m needed to play, I’ll be ready to go,” Collins said. “It hasn’t been that long since I played, really. As far as my preparation and stuff, I really haven’t done anything different since we made the switch. I’ll be ready to go.”
