    SUMMARY: Vince Young left the Titans locker room on crutches after spraining his left knee late in his team's 17-10 win over the Jaguars. "The biggest concern that I have right now, not knowing, I don't think it is serious about Vince," Coach Jeff Fisher said. "We are going to do some studies, some tests on his knee." Young iced his knee and apparently was good enough early that team officials said they thought he could talk to reporters. But he was moving very gingerly while trying to get dressed with crutches at his locker and left without talking to reporters.

    I don't think anyone is going to be upset if he sits out a game or 2 to get better.

    No. Even if Collins blows. Then there'll just be 2 qbs we don't want starting.

    I want Vince Young to start, but It's clear he looks uncomfortable in the pocket...I'll stand by my excuse to blame the OC's.

    I want VY to actually sit the next game. This gives him rest, more studying the playbook, longer to look at the 3rd game, rest, and hopefully his knee will heal so he can run more effictively.

    But the question is - will he ever run? He neglected the run today, and still got hurt.

    I think he failed to run any today because of his hamstring. His left hamstring was wrapped and I saw him kind of rub on it a bit on a couple of occasions.

    I wonder what Dr.Elrod, the team doctor thought on the on-field ortho exams.
    I am a physical therapist and I know he was checking his ACL.

    The tests didn't look good, I thought....looked like he had a lot of laxity in his knee with both tests he did and he kept pressing on the medial meniscus area, which will usually tear and have pain in that area with an ACL. Man I am crossing my fingers hoping he's OK.
    Hopefully it was just some sort of sprain and the hamstring soreness also went along with the knee stuff.
