Titans QB Vince Young was pulled from practice on Thursday after aggravating an injury to his right knee, but coach Jeff Fisher still seems optimistic that Young will play against the Rams on Sunday, the Tennessean reports.
"He has been trying to push through practice and he just had a setback so we shut him down," Fisher said, as quoted in the story. "We'll tend to him ... and see how he is tomorrow."
Young hurt his knee last week in the Titans' loss to the Colts, but was still able to finish the game. The Titans training staff checked out the injury this week and deemed him fit to practice.

The Vince Young era will resume on Sunday when the Titans play the Jaguars at LP Field, according to the Tennessean.
The quarterback switch comes a few days after Titans owner Bud Adams informed the coaching staff he wants Young to start immediately. Young, the team's first-round draft pick in 2006, has played sparingly since last September's season-opener against the Jaguars.
Jaguars Coach Jack Del Rio said that his team would be prepared for both quarterbacks.

The Nashville City Paper reports that Vince Young's salary cap number jumps to more than $14 millionin 2010, thanks in large part to a $7.5 million base salary in the fifth year of his original six-year contract. Young also has a base salary of $8.5 million scheduled for 2011.
Young's agent, Major Adams, told The City Paper that he and Young might be willing to lower that cap number in an effort to remain on the team, if something agreeable can be worked out.
Titans general manager Mike Reinfeldt said the club has not yet had any internal discussions about Young's salary, his long-term future with the team or even a number that might be palatable to the club.

According to the Nashville City Paper, Vince Young's agent says the quarterback has no desire to be traded from the Tennessee Titans.
Young told Baltimore television station WMAR that he is focused on winning back the starting job in Tennessee, but if that doesn't happen he would be ready to move on.
Young stated, "Definitely I want to be in there playing ball and picking up where I left off, winning games and having a good time with my teammates and fans. But at the same time if them guys don't want me in there, it's time for me to make a career change for myself."
