NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Jeff Fisher just said more firmly what he'd hinted at and indicated last week: Vince Young's not getting back on the huddle any time soon so long as things don't fall apart.

"As long as we're winning, Kerry [Collins] is our quarterback," he said.

Pressed for more, he offered this:

"We're going to get Vince back and get his knee back and work with him getting back involved in the offense, but Kerry's going to go ahead and play for us until he struggles or whatever else happens. You saw by the way he played and just in light of everything, it just makes sense to go with this."

Fisher declined to go into the specifics of making that decision -- "that's just the way we're going" -- and said he's not had a conversation with Young about it.

"He's eventually going to be under center for us," Fisher said. "When that happens, I don't know, but right now, Kerry is out quarterback."

It's the right move, even if Collins absorbs some sacks and throws some interceptions.

Young's got a lot to come to terms with, and based on his comments last week, he's in denial that anything is at all wrong. It's not healthy for the team for him to be in position to lead it right now.
