HEAD COACH JEFF FISHER**

(on Kenny Britt getting into a late night incident last night)

This is what I know; I'm still of course gathering facts.  He did not participate in practice because I excused him from practice while I am still trying to obtain some information.  My understanding at this point is that he was at the wrong place at the wrong time, there was an altercation, but he was one of those that was trying to break it up.  That's my understanding right now, and I'm still gathering facts.  I haven't ruled out the possibility of him not playing.  It really depends on the information I am able to obtain before kickoff.  That's really all I can say.

(on how he was informed of the incident involving Kenny Britt)

I'm not going to go into that.  Have you ever had your phone ring really early in the morning?

(on what Kenny Britt's involvement was in the incident)

I'm gathering facts right now, and again I'm giving Kenny the benefit of the doubt.  Nevertheless, it didn't need to be a distraction on the practice field.  The team is aware of it.  I discussed it with the team and the rest of the team was certainly going to practice today and they practiced very well.

(on if it's frustrating to hear that Kenny Britt was involved in an incident after he seemed to have turned the corner on the field)

Kenny is a good kid.  He's working hard.  He's really come on the last few weeks and I'd be surprised if he would put himself in a position to jeopardize that—but again, I'm still gathering facts.

(on if Kenny Britt was injured in the incident)

No.

(on if he learns that Kenny Britt's involvement in the incident was more than it initially appears)

Then I will take whatever appropriate action that I feel I need to take, I will take.

(on if he is concerned that this is not the first minor incident involving Kenny Britt)

No, I think he's made strides, so let's just wait and I'll sort this thing out and I can comment on the big picture at some other point.

(on if he thinks he'll be able to sort the Kenny Britt situation out before kickoff on Sunday)

I think I have a pretty good chance of doing that, yeah.

(on if other players were with Kenny Britt last night when the altercation took place)

I'm not going to go into those details.

(on if Vince Young practiced today)

No he didn't practice today.

(on if he has ruled Vince Young out of this Sunday's game against the Eagles)

I have not, no.  He will be listed on the injury report as no practice, questionable.

(on what kind of progress Vince Young has made in the last 24 hours)

He did some things inside, so that's progress for us.

(on if he was pleased with the team's practice this week with it being a short week)

I complimented this group because we were a tired football team on Tuesday and Wednesday considering the travel and the Monday night and everything, and they bounced right back.  They had two really solid days, so we got our feet back underneath us.
