Young Practices in What Fisher Calls 'Huge Step'

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Vince Young has returned to practice, though the Titans quarterback split the work with backup Kerry Collins in what coach Jeff Fisher calls a "huge step" in his recovery from a mildly strained right hamstring.

The Titans (6-7) host Miami (7-6) on Sunday needing a win to keep their faint playoff hopes alive, and Young is 6-1 since returning to the starting job. Fisher says Young still is dealing with a sore right knee that knocked him out of practice a week ago in addition to the hamstring the quarterback pulled in last week's 47-7 win over St. Louis.

Young calls himself a quick healer.

Fisher says he hopes Young takes another big step Friday but they have to see how the quarterback's leg responds to the work he managed Thursday.
