Quarterback Vince Young isn’t saying if he missed meetings before his first career start against the Steelers, and he also refuses to say if he thinks that’s why coach Jeff Fisher benched him late in that loss. “I don’t even read all the stuff that’s going on, so I couldn’t even answer those types of questions, because I don’t even know what’s going on,” Young said Wednesday after practice.
“I don’t really know where all this is coming from, so I don’t really want to answer that. I just want to continue to keep preparing myself. It seems like every time comes up, it’s an issue with Vince. I don’t understand that. Like I said, I’m just out here working hard and preparing myself to play right now.”
The Tennessean and TitanInsider.com cited anonymous sources Monday that Young returned late when he was excused to take two of the late Steve McNair’s sons to a school breakfast and missed another meeting that week. When asked if missing the meetings led to being benched after three turnovers, Young said he didn’t agree with that. He said questions should be directed to coach Jeff Fisher. Fisher told reporters in Denver on a conference call Wednesday that what happened that week against Pittsburgh is behind the Titans now. Tennessee plays the Broncos this week.
