 NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Vince Young had his right hand taped as he left the Tennessee Titans' offices Friday. His head coach isn't talking much about the injury, now that the season opener is so close.
Young bruised his throwing hand in the first half of Thursday night's 23-21 preseason finale win over Green Bay, and he didn't return for the first series of the third quarter as originally planned. But Young had thrown 27 passes, completing 13 for 134 yards without an interception.
Asked if the Titans planned to X-ray or run other tests on Young's right hand, coach Jeff Fisher said only that the quarterback was doing well.
``We'll have a full injury report for you (next) Friday,'' Fisher said. ``He'll be designated as whether he practiced or did not practice. At this point, I would expect he would practice.''
Fisher said he felt good about Young's performance against the Packers, particularly the quarterback's three runs for 57 yards. Young also had his longest completion of the preseason - a 50-yarder to Justin McCareins.
The Titans' first-team offense made four trips inside the Green Bay 20 in the first half - including three inside the 10 - but couldn't avoid finishing the preseason without a touchdown. The Titans settled for four field-goal attempts, missing one.
Such failings are familiar to the Titans, who finished 2007 last in the NFL in offensive efficiency inside the 20. That helped make kicker Rob Bironas an All-Pro with a league-high 35 field goals, including a record eight in one game against the Houston Texans.
``A lot of guys on the sideline, we wanted to get in the end zone bad, but they play good defense,'' Young said of the Packers, who sat five defensive starters and pulled the rest early. ``We don't want to throw an interception or things like that. We reserve the right to kick. You don't want to force something in there.''
