Fisher: 'Chances Are Pretty Good' Young Plays

After suffering a knee sprain against Jacksonville on Monday night, Titans quarterback Vince Young is recovering this week and hopes to play against the Eagles this weekend. Officially, he's listed as day-to-day.

Titans head coach Jeff Fisher told the Philadelphia media Wednesday that although Young will not practice today, he expects his quarterback to play on Sunday.

"I think (the chances are) pretty good," Fisher said. "He's going to be day-to-day, we'll just see how he progresses each day. Obviously I can't make that determination now, but we're hopeful he's going to play."

If Young can't go, Titans backup quarterback Kerry Collins will get the start. Collins hasn't started a game since October 18, 2009, when he completed 2 of 12 passes for -7 yards at New England. Young replaced Collins at quarterback the following week against Jacksonville. In 2008 Collins led the Titans to a 13-3 record and a Divisional Round loss to Baltimore in the playoffs.
