Vince Young on injured list. Vince Young, Tennessee Titan's quarterback, is now on the injured reserve list. The Titan's quarterback injured his right thumb late in the third quarter of Sunday's 19-16 overtime loss to Washington.

Tennessee team doctors have recommended that he have surgery to repair his flexor tendon in his right thumb. During the Sunday game, Young was replaced by Rusty Smith. Following the game, Young threw his shoulder pads into the crowd as he left the field, had an altercation with Coach Fisher in the locker room, and stormed out. Next, Fisher declared that Smith would become the Titans' starting quarterback.

Apparently, Titan's owner Bud Adams is staying neutral. He has talked to Fisher and Young and told them to "get this thing settled." Young is under contract through 2011 and due $8.5 million.

Young finished 3rd in the bidding for the NFL Comeback Player of the Year award behind Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Carnell Williams and the winner, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
