Fisher: Young is 'day-to-day'

Monday, October 15, 2007 at 4:02pm

Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young had an MRI performed on his injured right quadriceps muscle Monday, but results had not yet been received back by the team.

Titans coach Jeff Fisher said in his weekly press conference that Young was sore and would not have been able to practice if team had had a practice for Monday.

“He has a thigh strain. We did an MRI just to clear up how we go about treating it,” Fisher said. “He could not practice today, if we had practice today, but it’s not as bad as we thought. He’ll be day-to-day. Our treatment path will be to try and get him back on the practice field as fast as we can.”

Young suffered the injury on a scramble to the left with 6:54 remaining in Sunday’s 13-10 loss at Tampa Bay.

If he cannot go, backup Kerry Collins would assume the starting role. The Titans travel to Houston, Young’s hometown, to face the Texans on Sunday.

Fisher would not offer specifics when asked if the Titans would need to place a third quarterback on their 53-man active roster. The Titans have former MBA star Ingle Martin on their practice squad and have had David Greene and Paul Thompson in for tryouts last month.

Also, wide receiver Brandon Jones, who was inactive for Sunday’s game because of a knee injury, underwent an arthroscopic procedure on Monday afternoon and will likely be out for a week or two.

Running back Chris Brown’s ankle is still sore, as Fisher pronounced him “day-to-day” and admitted that third-string running back Chris Henry could be active Sunday at Houston for the first time this season.
