Young ready to put benching in the past

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Vince Young says he still hasn't talked with Jeff Fisher on why the Titans coach benched him for the final quarter against Pittsburgh.

Young also insists he isn't dwelling over the move either.

Young said Wednesday after practice that he's busy preparing to start when Tennessee (1-1) visits the New York Giants (1-1) on Sunday. Yes, the quarterback says he was upset about being benched for the fourth quarter in last week's 19-11 loss to Pittsburgh when trailing 16-3.

Fisher says Young had a great practice and is going to play well Sunday. The coach plans to talk to his quarterback sometime this week but says there's no sense in rehashing what he called a "one-time thing."
