Reid Thinks Young Will Be OK For Rams

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Quarterback Vince Young suffered a right hamstring injury late in the second quarter of Thursday's preseason game against the New York Jets.

Following the game, head coach Andy Reid said that Young's hamstring was still sore. When asked about Young's status for the season opener against the Rams, Reid said,"I think he's going to be OK."  

On a fourth-and-1 from the Jets' 9-yard line with 53 seconds left, Young was running to his right when he pulled up as he threw an incomplete pass in the end zone to wide receiver Chad Hall. Young was seen on the sideline smiling as he was checked by team trainers and doctors. Young walked to the locker room without any assistance and was finished for the night.

Young was 15-of-23 for 193 yards with a touchdown for a 105.9 QB rating, his best of the preseason. Young was replaced in the lineup by Mike Kafka.
