Bet on the NFL Vince Young's injury could mean Kerry Collins gets this start this Sunday vs. the Dolphins.
Vince Young has been dealing with an ankle injury that has limited his playing abilities. Coach Fisher says they will warm him up to see how he does and that no final decisions have yet been made. So when sports betting note that Kerry Collins warmed up by throwing to new receiver Randy Moss, just in case.
Meanwhile, starting defensive tackle Tony Brown practiced fully for a second straight day after changing his rehab habits and is looking good. Other injury updates include running back Chris Johnson whose thigh injury is looking better, as he has been going strong all week. Cornerback Ryan Mouton is still dealing with a hamstring injury and is still questionable but he was out on the field fully all week. Another hamstring injury includes receiver Kenny Britt. Fisher said the Titans reduced Young's work Friday after he took about half the starter's snaps on Thursday. Fisher also noted that he took some starter reps in practice.
Collins said he is prepared to go if called upon. He already has made one start against Philadelphia and two relief appearances for Young this year. Collins is prepared for whatever his role will be this weekend. As for working extra with Moss, Collins said he just wanted to help the receiver get up to speed. Collins is however, wishing that he had more time to work with Moss, there are still a lot of elements they did not get to practice.
Football betting notes: Vincent Paul Young, Jr. (born May 18, 1983), goes by the nickname “VY.” Young was the third overall draft pick in the 2006 NFL Draft. He played college football at The University of Texas. In his rookie season, Young was named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year and earned a roster spot on the AFC Pro Bowl team. In 2009, Young earned his second Pro Bowl Selection and was named Sporting News NFL Comeback Player of the Year.
As a junior in college, Young finished second behind Reggie Bush in the voting for the Heisman Trophy, an honor later vacated. He won the Davey O'Brien Award which is given annually to the best collegiate quarterback in the nation. Following the Heisman voting, Young led his team to a BCS National Championship against the defending BCS national champion, University of Southern California, in the 2006 Rose Bowl. The game was called one of the most-anticipated games in the history of college football. In 2006, ESPN named Young as the 10th best college football player of all time. Texas retired Young's jersey on August 30, 2008.
