Young skips practice with injury to thumb
By Jim Wyatt • THE TENNESSEAN • December 4, 2008
Titans backup quarterback Vince Young did not practice Wednesday and could be sidelined a few more days because of an infection in the cuticle of his right thumb.
Coach Jeff Fisher said the team's medical staff treated the infection, which surfaced after Thursday's game at Detroit, with an antibiotic but it didn't work.
Chris Simms worked as the No. 2 quarterback behind Kerry Collins in practice, although Fisher said he expected Young to be available for Sunday's game against Cleveland.
"We are just going to back him down from throwing for the next few days," Fisher said. "I don't see any problems at this point with him being able to play in the game.''
Young saw his first action since the season opener in last week's game at Detroit, coming off the bench in the fourth quarter of a 47-10 win.
