 HOUSTON (AP) -Even as Kerry Collins went through his worst performance of the season, Vince Young stood idly on the sideline during Tennessee's 13-12 loss to Houston on Sunday.
Team owner Bud Adams told The Tennessean in a story Sunday that he's in no way disappointed with Young's progress, even though Young has only appeared in two games this season. But the former Texas star and Houston native has thrown only one pass since the opener and continues to wonder when he'll play again or where he fits into the Titans' plans.
``Whatever goes on upstairs, I have nothing to do with that,'' said Young. ``All I can do is be supportive of my teammates and that's what I'm doing.''
Adams told the Nashville newspaper that he has no intention of releasing Young before his contract expires after the 2011 season.
``He is a young guy and he is learning. He is still growing up,'' Adams told the newspaper in an interview last week from his penthouse office in Texas. ``Vince is under contract for three more years, so he is not going anywhere.''
as not in the Titans' locker room after Sunday's loss. Young says he has a good relationship with Adams and appreciates his support.
``He's the head man,'' Young said. ``Ever since I was drafted, he's always showed me a lot of love. Any time he comes to the games, he always greets me and talks to me.''
Young, the 2006 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, has been backing up Collins since spraining his knee in the opener. Collins went 15-for-33 for 181 yards in Sunday's loss to earn his lowest rating of the year (50.2) as Young watched from the bench with his arms folded most of the game.
``Everything happens for a reason,'' Young said. ``All I can do is sit back and learn and pay attention to Kerry Collins right now.''
Young created a media frenzy after the Titans' opener, when coach Jeff Fisher called police for help finding the quarterback. Young said the incident was blown out of proportion, even though SWAT officers and crisis negotiators were on hand to assist.
Young said Sunday he's 100 percent healthy and mentally ready to play.
``It's all right. Vince is OK. I'm blessed, thank God,'' he said. ``Everybody acted like I never sat out. I sat out at Texas, I sat out the first games in the (pro) league. I'm very patient. That's the first thing you teach yourself from the Bible, be patient with everything.
``It's not going to happen like you want all the time,'' he said. ``Everybody's going to have adversity. You've got to be strong in the mind, continue doing your job and that's what I've been doing, being a leader from the sideline.''
Young just smiled when asked what lessons he's learned this season, on the field and off.
``It's a lot, there's a lot of stuff,'' he said. ``I can't even elaborate on it. Just part of growing up, right? All I can do is thank God that I'm blessed to have a comfortable job every day, come to work every day, do my responsibilities at work.''
