Titans Ask Police to Help Find Young

Vince Young is awaiting an MRI exam on his sprained left knee today, hours after the Tennessee Titans sought police help in finding the quarterback the team described as "emotionally down."

Young left his home around 7 p.m. yesterday 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 today. "But no one actually knew that until he was spoken to face to face."
