NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Vince Young has had a variety of tests on his right hamstring, and coach Jeff Fisher calls it a mild strain that will keep the Tennessee quarterback day to day.

Fisher said Monday he has not ruled Young out for Sunday's game with Miami (7-6) and hopes to have the quarterback on the practice field Wednesday for Tennessee (6-7).

Young pulled up at the end of a 44-yard run, the longest of his career, during Sunday's 47-7 win over St. Louis. The quarterback said after the win that he definitely could have returned for a playoff-type game.

But Fisher also says they will not risk further injury for Young. The coach says it's likely Young will be limited if he plays because it's unlikely the quarterback will be 100 percent.
