The Tennessee Titans Vince Young wants to play Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins, although his right hamstring injury still keeps him out of team’s practices.
Young didn’t practice Wednesday, but appeared in sweat shirt, instead of his Titans jersey, and watched his teammates working out with the hood over his head most of the time. A quick healer, Young said he feels much better than when he strained the back of his right leg in last weekend’s 47-7 win over the St. Louis Rams, and he would likely play Sunday’s game as it is a crucial game for the Titans (6-7) to keep their faint playoff hopes alive for another week.
Young has led the Titans to win six of the last seven games, including a five game streak, since he took over Kerry Collins as a starter of the 0-6 Titans. The fourth-year quarterback is 4-0 at home this season where he has completed 69.1 percent of his passes for 854 yards with four touchdowns and only one interception for a 107.3 passer rating.
Not practicing last Friday after aggravating his right knee the day before, he still played very well during last week’s win before he pulled up at the end of a 44-yard run that was the longest of his career. Having completed 6-of-8 for 132 yards with one touchdown pass, he left the field the Titans leading 14-0, a solid foundation for the 47-7 win.
