NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The quarterback news so far Wednesday from Tennessee isn’t about who will start Sunday in Jacksonville.
It’s that John David Booty, who tried out for Houston on Tuesday, became a member of the Titans’ practice squad.
The Titans are practicing right now. As they sort out first-team reps in a week when owner Bud Adams has reportedly instructed coach Jeff Fisher to start Young ahead of Kerry Collins, odds are they felt they needed scout-team assistance.
Fisher started the season with three quarterbacks on the roster, but the Titans cut Patrick Ramsey after three games.
Houston was likely updating contingency plans when it had Booty in for a look with a large group featuring quarterbacks, receivers and tight ends.
The Titans had made room for Booty Tuesday by cutting running back Lance Ball from the practice squad.
