NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Titans quarterback Vince Young was fined $7,500 for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in last Sunday's 22-20 loss to Indianapolis.

The NFL fined Young for throwing the ball at Colts defensive back Kelvin Hayden just before halftime and it cost the team 15 yards. Hayden had pushed at Young's head, and the quarterback responded by tossing the ball toward the ground at Hayden's feet.

Young declined to comment on the fine during Saturday's practice before Tennessee's Monday night game in New Orleans.

The penalty erased Young's 7-yard run and turned third-and-3 at the Titans 44 to third-and-18. Tennessee punted a play later and went into halftime trailing 16-6.
