*We guess Tennessee Titans QB Vince Young has gone back over to the weird side.
Sunday, Young, who injured his right thumb late in the third quarter in the Titans’ 19-16 overtime loss to to the Washington Redskins, and was replaced by rookie Rusty Smith, left for the locker room but returned to the sideline and had the thumb taped and re-taped in an effort to return. He even tried a glove, but coach Jeff Fisher stuck with Smith.
Apparently that’s what set Young off. After the game he walked toward the tunnel and suddenly tossed his shoulder pads and jersey into the stands.
A few minutes later he walked past reporters already dressed, ignoring their questions and his old college teammate, Michael Griffin, who tried to talk to him. Three hours after the game, Young wrote on Twitter that he was fine and apologized to his teammates. He then tweeted, “Just want to play.”
Fisher said Young has a torn flexor tendon in his right thumb and may need season-ending surgery. Either way, Fisher says Smith now is Tennessee’s starter after the fifth-year veteran’s latest meltdown that has Young’s future with this franchise in question in a season he needed to prove he could be their franchise quarterback.
“He threw half his uniform in the stands. I think clearly that is no way to respond, and so we have some things that we have to sort out with him,” Fisher said of Young. “He may need surgery. And if that’s the case, he’s done for the year.”
