The Tennessee Titans just keep doing the quarterback shuffle due to injuries, and now it's Vince Young whose left sprained ankle is healthy enough for him to start with backup Kerry Collins missing a game due to a strained left calf.

Coach Jeff Fisher said Monday an MRI exam showed the strained calf for Collins. That means rookie Rusty Smith will back up Young on Sunday when the Washington Redskins visit.

The Titans (5-4) have started a different quarterback each of the past three games with the starter unable to finish three of the previous four. That hasn't helped fix their third-down problems on offense or extend drives either, and Tennessee now has lost two straight.

They now play four of the next five games at home.
