    SUMMARY: Titans Coach Jeff Fisher said that the injury to QB Vince Young Saturday night was not serious. "Vince will be fine," Fisher said. "I expect him to be able to practice tomorrow afternoon. A little sore, but just a mild ankle sprain. It really settled down on the sideline. As I mentioned last night, we had intended on that being his last drive and we were going to put Cody [Hodges] in at the point. So, he was not removed from the game because of the ankle injury." Fisher went on to say a number of players will return this week from their injuries. "Bo Scaife should be back, Gregg Guenther should be back, Brandon Jones is up for another good week," said Fisher. "We should be healing up and be able to have more players on the field next week."

    This may actually be a blessing in disquise, maybe he won't try to run as much now. I understand his running makes big plays but I still don't want to see the guy get hurt.

    He wasn't running when he got hurt, he made an ill-advised over the shoulder pass at the time.

    He was just working on a new throwing motion.

    He was walking around fine after the game. Not a limp in sight.

    I guess the good thing though is that he avoids big hits very well. In all of his college career I can't think of a time where he got popped real good. Or should I say Bomarized?

    He was definitely on the move outside of the pocket, even if he hadn't passed the line of scrimmage and was still contemplating throwing it.

    But he'd left his blockers, he'd probably held the ball longer than Chow/Fisher would want him to before just throwing it away and living for another play, and he didn't seem to sense the guy that was bearing down on him from behind.

    It's going to be tough finding the balance with him in terms of how long is too long to hold the ball trying to make a play, because he's one of those guys who can improvise.

    But if they don't find the balance, there are going to be a lot of those hold-your-breath moments, waiting for him to pick himself up off the turf.
