(Newser) – Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young admits he got a little rattled by boos from the hometown fans, but he says he's otherwise "fine" and eager to rejoin the team once his leg heals, the Tennessean reports. Young sought to put to rest the swirling rumors that he's suffering from depression and ready to quit. "When it happens again, I'll know how to handle it," he said.

“I’m fine. I’m good,’’ said Young, whose sprained MCL will keep him out for up to 4 weeks. “I just needed a day and a half to get through some things and how to handle things, but now I am OK. I was never depressed; I just hurt a little bit."
