Tennessee Titans Morning Links: From Bad To Maybe Worse Edition (Updated)

Tennessee_titans_30x21 WKRN reports that Jeff Fisher and Vince Young had a meeting at midnight at Baptist Sports Park.  The story alleges (without naming sources) that there were "questions about Young's state of mind began when the quarter back left his home abruptly at 7:30 p.m. Monday."

Here's the part that should worry all of us:

Titans officials alerted Metro police who issued a BOLO to be on the lookout for Young's SUV.

*Update: This story is now posted at The Big Lead as well.*

Statement from the Titans:

Last night, we received a call from people that are closest to Vince informing us that he had left his house in a state of mind that had them concerned; and that he was unreachable, having left his cell phone at the house. Not having all the facts available to us and approaching the matter prudently, we contacted Metro Police to make them aware of the situation and asked for their assistance in locating Vince. 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.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 VY's MRI was rescheduled from Monday to Tuesday, so the 2-4 weeks number being tossed around today is still pure speculation.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Titans are rallying around Vince Young publicly, as noted by Jim Wyatt.  Here's a good quote from Titan Keith Bullock:

Linebacker Keith Bulluck said he doesn't think the quarterback quit on his team. He buys Fisher's theory that Young was dealing with an injury, not a bruised ego.

"When I was a younger player I used to throw my helmet and all that stuff, but it is different as a defensive player," Bulluck said. "As a quarterback you almost feel like the weight of the world can be on your shoulders at times. … I am sure it is something he has to work through. He is an emotional player, good or bad. He'll work on that, I'm sure.''

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Keith Bulluck also has a new nickname for 'Ocho Cinco' Johnson:

"I like Oucho Cinco, I think he’s great," Bulluck said. "He’s Oucho right now with that shoulder brace on the sidelines and he was looking real dejected yesterday. Baltimore took it to those guys. We’ll just see how that shoulder is. Tell him to get his shoulder right.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Titans will host free agent wide receivers Glenn Martinez and Chad Jackson at Baptist Sports Park today.  Chris Davis, Biren Ealy and Paul Williams better be nervous.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Lost in the shuffle of Sunday's psycho-drama: is this a hack looking for a reaction or a genius using reverse psychology to help the dumber among us realize how lucky  we are?  You decide.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 A good first hand account from someone a little outside the MSM game; Nashville resident, editor and Titans fan, Clay Travis.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Jim Wyatt confirms what many SEC fans knew all along.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Pro Football Weekly has an encouraging blind item in their 'Whispers' section about the Titans' original playmaker:

There is greater optimism in Tennessee about Titans DE Jevon Kearse’s ability to consistently contribute after a strong end to the preseason. This wasn’t the case early in training camp, when Kearse did not look quite as good as had been hoped, the way we hear it.
