Adam Schefter Reports Titans Think Vince Young Has a Torn MCL

Schefter is reporting that the Titans think Vince Young tore his MCL.  I am not really sure what that means.  He is expected to have an MRI tomorrow.  We will just have to wait and see what the MRI reveals.

Now it gets interesting.  PFT is reporting that the Titans have contacted Chris Simms.  If the Titans don't have confidence that Ingle Martin, who is on the practice squad, can step in if Kerry Collins were to go down, they absolutely have to bring in another quarterback.  Simms is probably the best guy available, but I would also put a call in to Daunte Culpepper to see how serious he is about retirement.  They obviously cannot go into a game with only Collins on the active roster.

How much does this hurt the Titans?  It is too early to tell, and I don't feel like having that argument right now.  One thing is for sure, the AFC got a lot more wide open today if Tom Brady really did tear his ACL.  The Titans don't rely on VY as much as the Patriots rely on Brady.  Collins is fully capable of managing the offense and leaving the game in the hands of Chris Johnson, LenDale White, and the defense.
