IRVING, Texas -- In a conference call with reporters talking about the upcoming game between the Titans and Cowboys on Sunday, Titans quarterback Vince Young said he's moved on from an ugly incident in June that resulted in him getting into a fight at Club Onyx, a Dallas strip club.

Young was seen on video going after a man who made derogatory comments about him and what is perceived to be a negative gesture with his hands, a Hook 'em Horns sign down, which is in reference to the University of Texas, where Young went to school.

Young was issued a Class C Assault citation, an offense punishable by a fine of up to $500.

"I was disappointed but I moved on from that," Young said. "Things happen and I moved on from that."

The maturity level of Young is always in question. He was benched in a Week 2 loss to Pittsburgh and reports surfaced he missed a team meeting which led to poor preparation.

Young said he's doing the necessary things to help his team win. The Titans are 2-2, and his family has become more important to him.

"I got a family now," Young said. "I'm just focused on a lot of different things. It's not about VY; it's about me and myself, my kids, my family, and I’m just trying to do what I can to leave a great legacy for those guys and take over as well."

Young is still a dangerous presence on the field.

He ranks eighth in completion percentage among NFL quarterbacks (he's made only 71 throws because the Titans are a run-oriented team) and while he's rushed only 13 times, the Cowboys noted he's using his arm more to get the ball down the field and not just scrambling for yards.

"He knows when to run and he knows when to throw and he knows when to get down," inside linebacker Bradie James said. "And they have a different dynamic with Chris Johnson back there running."
