Titans QB Young able to practice, still considered day to day

Vince Young's left knee and ankle feel good enough that the Tennessee Titans quarterback returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since spraining his leg.

"I feel a little bit better," Young said, according to The Tennessean. "I am going to take it day by day. As long as it continues to get better, I will continue to do more things."

Now whether or not he plays Sunday when the Titans (5-2) visit the San Diego Chargers (2-5) remains to be seen.

Titans coach Jeff Fisher backed down practice to give his team some rest, and he said Young was good enough to get through one period Wednesday.

Young said he wanted to move around and see how he felt.

Fisher said the key to whether or not Young starts Sunday will be how the quarterback is able to move around and if he can be effective under center.

Young sprained his knee and ankle on the second series of the Titans' 30-3 victory Oct. 18 in Jacksonville. He was in uniform and warmed up last Sunday, but he watched as Kerry Collins led the Titans to a 37-19 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

"I am not a selfish player," Young said. "I want to be in full shape for my teammates, so I decided not to jeopardize anything and take it easy and be safe."

Sitting out Wednesday's practice for the Titans were Collins (finger), linebacker Jamie Winborn (shoulder), defensive tackle Tony Brown (knee), defensive end Jacob Ford (knee), cornerback Ryan Mouton (hamstring) and running back Chris Johnson (thigh), The Tennessean reported. Guard Leroy Harris (hip) was limited.
