Young works in light practice

Quarterback Vince Young was a full participant in Wednesday's light practice in preparation for the San Diego Chargers.

Young, who sat out last week backing up Kerry Collins, is battling a sprained left knee and ankle suffered against Jacksonville in a Monday night game.

"He's getting better. He's improving and he was good enough to get through one of our periods today," Titans coach Jeff Fisher said. "...We'll take him each day, and if he's able to move around in the pocket and be effective under center, then he has a chance to play."

Young said he wanted to test the leg to see how it felt.

"I'm feeling better. I wanted to get out there and test the leg and see how it felt," Young said. "It's all right. It's still to day-to-day."

He was wearing a protective sock on his left leg in practice, and though he did not don a brace on the sideline Sunday, said he would have had to put one on if he had gone into the 37-19 victory over Philadelphia.

Meanwhile, Collins was among the Titans players who sat out to rest the torn tendon in the middle finger of his throwing hand. He said the fingernail was the primary problem, causing the finger to have to be drained a couple of times before Sunday's win over Philadelphia.

Several other Titans sat out on Wednesday, as practiced ended with a walk-thru of approximately a half hour.

Among them were defensive end Jacob Ford (hamstring), defensive tackle Tony Brown (knee), cornerback Ryan Mouton (hamstring) and linebacker Jamie Winborn (shoulder).

Running back Chris Johnson (thigh) was limited to the walk-through.

โ€œI think we'll have a chance to get a lot of them back tomorrow,โ€ Fisher said.

Ford said players are grateful to get some rest time during practice to help get their legs back underneath them.

"My knee and stuff [hamstring] were bothering me, so they gave me a day off. It's pretty good to get back healthy," Ford said. "A lot of guys have playing a lot of plays right now, and this is an opportunity to get our legs back under us."
