Was Young Being Serious with Therapist About Suicide?


It looks as if the Vince Young saga in Tennessee is getting stranger by the minute.  Reports now say that the Titans called police to look for Young on Monday because his therapist told coach Jeff Fisher the quarterback mentioned suicide several times before driving away from his home with a gun.

A report from the police says that despite Fisher saying the whole thing was overblown, don’t buy it.  Fisher was indeed worried about his first-round QB, and relayed that message to the police after talking to Young’s therapist.  “I asked him, `What made her worry about him?’ Lt. Andrea Swisher wrote. “He stated, `His mood, his emotions, he wants to quit, and he mentioned suicide several times.’ He went on to state that he left the house with a gun.”

While Young seemed okay on Thursday when he was around his team and the media, it seems like the QB is a ticking time bomb, with something bad just waiting to happen.  Many think that Young is going to miss an extended amount of time this year, as the team is going to go with Kerry Collins for now.  Young does have a legit leg injury suffered after he threw a pick that started all the issues.

Young won’t be making the trip with the Titans to Cincinnati. Fisher said Friday injured players stay home to continue treatment.  That of course being treatment on his knee, not what’s going on inside his head.  Look for the saga to continue, Fisher to continue to brush off the major issues in the case, and eventually for Young to take a walk from the team and actually try and get right.
