The Titans said Young's return was probable, but he never re-entered the game, and Tennessee had to rely on backup Kerry Collins.
``He tried to stay loose if he could, in case we had an issue with Kerry,'' coach Jeff Fisher said. ``At this point, he'll just be day to day, but it was not something he could have played effectively with.''
Young agreed. He said it was too early to speculate about playing in next week's game at Houston.
Young was injured when he scrambled for a 2-yard gain and was pushed out of bounds by defensive tackle Jovan Haye in the third quarter. He started limping just as Haye caught up to him.
Arizona quarterback Kurt Warner left the Cardinals' 25-10 loss to Carolina with a sprained left elbow in the first quarter.
Tim Rattay replaced him. Warner, a two-time NFL MVP, made his first start of the year in place of Matt Leinart, who is out for the season with a broken collarbone.
Already missing starting running back Laurence Maroney, the New England Patriots lost his backup, Sammy Morris, to a chest injury during their 48-27 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Morris, coming off consecutive 100-yard games in place of Maroney, was hurt early in the third quarter after he was tackled hard on a 2-yard gain. Receiver Donte Stallworth immediately signaled for team trainers, who spent several minutes examining Morris as he lay on the field.
After Morris slowly walked off the field and was examined on the sideline, his helmet was taken away and he was brought to the locker room.
Maroney missed his third straight game because of a groin injury. He was inactive despite practicing some during the week.
Tight end Benjamin Watson hurt his ankle in the second quarter when he was tackled near the sideline by Roy Williams after making a catch. Watson was slow getting up, then walked up and down the sideline a few times before being taken to the locker room.
Cowboys cornerback Anthony Henry, the NFL leader with four interceptions, was out for the second straight game with a high right ankle sprain. Jacques Reeves started in his place.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre was limping noticeably as he walked to the interview podium after a 17-14 win over the Washington Redskins. He said somebody rolled up on his ankle on an early scramble.
``It really doesn't feel very good right now, but the bye week will help a little bit,'' Favre said. ``I'm sure it will hurt two weeks from now; it hurt before the game.''
Tight end Bubba Franks hurt his knee in the second half and was unable to return.
Two players on the Redskins' beat-up offensive line sustained groin injuries: right tackle Todd Wade and center Casey Rabach
Chargers Pro Bowl center Nick Hardwick hurt his right foot early in San Diego's 28-14 win over Oakland and was taken into the locker room on a cart.
Kyle Boller started at quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens in place of the injured Steve McNair in their 22-3 win over the St. Louis Rams.
McNair was on the active list despite a strained groin and a stiff back.
Rams QB Marc Bulger said he should be ready to play next week. Wide receiver Drew Bennett left the game with a hamstring injury in the second quarter, further depleting St. Louis' thin receiving crew. Rams center Brett Romberg (left ankle) and defensive end Leonard Little (sprained left toe) were also injured.
Cincinnati right tackle Willie Anderson, who had made 116 consecutive starts, was on the inactive list for the Bengals' 27-20 loss to the Chiefs. Anderson has been slowed by a chronic foot injury.
Bears starting defensive tackle Darwin Walker was inactive for Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Vikings after spraining his left knee in last week's game against the Packers. Anthony Adams started in his place.
Safety Brian Dawkins (neck) and cornerback Lito Sheppard (knee) were inactive for the Philadelphia Eagles' 16-9 win over the New York Jets.
