Titans owner tells Fisher, Young to "get this thing settled"

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Titans coach Jeff Fisher says quarterback Vince Young will have season-ending surgery on his throwing hand.

Fisher said Monday that Tennessee team doctors recommended the surgery to repair Young's flexor tendon in his right thumb, which he injured late in the third quarter of Sunday's 19-16 overtime loss to Washington. Young will be placed on injured reserve.

Rusty Smith replaced Young in the game, and Fisher said after the contest the rookie would be the starter against Houston on Sunday.

Young bolted the stadium after a heated exchange with Fisher following the loss. The Tennessean reported Monday that owner Bud Adams had talked to Fisher and Young and told them to "get this thing settled."

Young is under contract through 2011 and due $8.5 million.
