Default Titans asked police to help find Young

Quote:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Vince Young is awaiting an MRI exam on his sprained left knee Tuesday, hours after the Tennessee Titans sought police help in finding the quarterback the team described as “emotionally down.”

Young left his home around 7 Monday night without a phone, prompting the Titans to call Nashville police for help. The team got a message to Young through a friend, and the quarterback met with coach Jeff Fisher and police at team headquarters around 11:30 p.m. Police spokesman Don Aaron said Young drove himself home about 30 minutes later.

The story first was reported by WKRN-TV.

“Ultimately, it appears the initial concerns about his emotional state were unfounded,” Aaron said Tuesday. “But no one actually knew that until he was spoken to face to face.”

Aaron also said Young had an unloaded handgun in the glovebox of his car. Tennessee law permits unloaded firearms in vehicles as long as no ammunition is present.

Young hurt his knee late in Sunday’s 17-10 win over Jacksonville and was booed heavily by fans.

“Given the totality of the circumstances, the fact that Young had been emotionally down all day Coach Fisher contacted the police department and asked for help in finding him to check on his emotional well-being,” Aaron said.

The Titans said people close to Young called the team Monday night, concerned about his state of mind when he left his home.

“He was located at a friend’s house, where we made contact with him. He then came to the practice facility where it was determined that those initial concerns by his friends and family were unfounded, and he returned home without incident,” the Titans said in a statement.

Young’s MRI exam was rescheduled for Tuesday from Monday with no explanation.

With him admitting he thought about retirement after his rookie year, this doesn't bode well.

Anyone think Vince is a bad QB, or lacks the potential to be good? If the Titans would stop drafting RBs and get them a stud WR and another receiving threat, I really think that team becomes scary.

Why the hell do teams with mobile QBs (Eagles, Titans, Falcons, etc) not look to add receiving threats? The Eagles finally seem to be getting it straight, but McNabb only has three or so years left, and Westbrook that or less.

IF he was thinking retirement already, maybe he's lost the drive to be in the nfl. If your thinking retirement then its time to go. IMO

I heard that the team psychiatrist was able to lift Youngs spirits but having him rub his earlopes while thinking happy thoughts....about Matt Leinarts career.

I never had him pegged as a headcase...he's no brainiac, but he always seemed like a good kid.

I would wager that he has major depression and is possibly bipolar. If that is the case, asking him to consider proper perspective and rationally assessing his life isn't very realistic without some meds and intensive therapy. Hopefully he gets the help he needs.
