Vince Young is awaiting results of an MRI exam on his sprained left knee, hours after the Tennessee Titans sought police help in finding the quarterback the team described as 'emotionally down'.

Young's agent said there was no need for concern - he was at a friend's house watching football and eating chicken wings. 'When people were worried about him, I was on the phone talking to him,' agent Major Adams said. 'I didn't know there was any confusion. He just said, 'Hey, I'm over here watching the game' ... and then I start getting all these frantic calls.'

Young (pictured) left his home around 7pm without a phone, prompting the Titans to call Nashville police for help. The team got a message to Young through a friend, and the quarterback met with coach Jeff Fisher and police at team headquarters later that night.
