Titans' Young questionable, to be game-time decision vs. Miami

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Vince Young took all the practice reps with the Tennessee Titans first-team offense Friday as they prepare to host the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

Young is listed as questionable because of a pulled right hamstring that forced him out of last week's victory over the St. Louis Rams in the second quarter.

Young, who said his hamstring is not really sore, said testing it in pre-game warm-ups will determine whether he starts for the Titans (6-7), who are still on the edge of the AFC wild-card playoff picture.

"That's gonna be the biggest test, when I get out there on Sunday and run around in pre-game," Young said. "I'm gonna wait till Sunday and see how I feel. I really haven't run on it fully yet, but it felt pretty good today."

Titans coach Jeff Fisher said that between now and kickoff, he hopes Young "can continue to heal and gain strength and move around in the pocket" on Sunday.

In addition to Young, other Titans are nursing injuries as well. Defensive tackle Tony Brown (knee) did not practice and will be questionable. Center Kevin Mawae (back) was a full participant and is probable. Receiver Nate Washington (ankle) is questionable after limited practice Friday.

Defensive end Eric Bakhtiari (concussion) is questionable, but practiced fully.

Linebacker David Thornton (shoulder) and tight end Craig Stevens (concussion) have missed practice all week and are doubtful.
