Around the league


NASHVILLE — An injured Vince Young tossed his shoulder pads and No. 10 jersey into the stands after Tennessee's 19-16 overtime loss Sunday to Washington.

The Titans quarterback hurt his right thumb late in the third quarter and was replaced by rookie Rusty Smith out of Florida Atlantic. Young returned to the sideline re-taped and tried a glove, but coach Jeff Fisher stuck with Smith. Then an upset Young threw his equipment into the stands.

Three hours later, a post on Young's Twitter account said he was fine and had apologized to teammates.

But the Tennessean reported that Young and Fisher argued in the locker room, and Fisher said he would stick with Smith regardless of Young's health. Young's injury might require season-ending surgery anyway.

After completing a 22-yarder to Emmanuel Sanders, Roethlisberger jumped into the arms of OT Flozell Adams. Roethlisberger then appeared to run up and say something to Seymour, who turned and struck the quarterback in the jaw with his open right hand.

  4. Rookie Jake Faria dissatisfied with performance in Rays' loss to Orioles

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The rookie pitcher walked to his locker Saturday after tossing the fourth quality start in as many tries to begin his career. He held the potent Orioles bats to three runs and for six innings gave his team a chance to win.

    It was refreshing to see RHP Jacob Faria take the blame after the loss even though he gave the Rays a chance to win. Too often young pitchers are encouraged by what they did and not necessarily the outcome, but Faria, making just his fourth big-league start, came to the Trop to win, didn't, and pointed the finger …
