Fisher: Young must earn job back

The next day Fisher called the police to search for Young because the coach was worried about his quarterback, who was missing for several hours. Fisher made no promises as to when Young will be back. The Titans diagnosed Young with a sprained medial collateral ligament, an injury that's sidelined some players 2-4 weeks, others longer.(Tennessean)
