  • Titans K Nedney out for opener, maybe for season

    Sept. 8, 2004 wire reports

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee kicker Joe Nedney will miss the Titans' season opener Sunday at Miami because of a hamstring injury that might put him out for the season.

    The Titans listed Nedney as out on Wednesday's injury report. He was hurt Tuesday while kicking a ball as it fell off a tee during a special teams session.

    Nedney was on the ground face-down before being helped by trainers. He walked off the field on his own, but had an MRI exam on Tuesday night.

    The kicker played only part of the first half of the Titans' 2003 season opener before tearing the ACL in his right, non-kicking leg. That forced punter Craig Hentrich into emergency duty, and he kicked four of five field goals in a victory over Oakland in the game.

    But Tennessee signed the NFL's career scoring leader Gary Anderson as Nedney's replacement for the season. Anderson was 27-of-31 on field goals, including a 46-yarder for a 20-17 victory over Baltimore in an AFC wild-card game in January.

    Titans' Vince Young given citation by Dallas police after fight at strip club

    Titans' Vince Young given citation by Dallas police after fight at strip club
    By Calvin Watkins

    DALLAS -- Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young was issued a Class C assault citation after an incident at a Dallas-area strip club early Sunday morning.

    According to surveillance video of the incident, Young threw a punch and set off a fight inside an office at Club Onyx after a man indentified as Creiton Kinchen insulted Young and made a derogatory sign referencing the University of Texas, Young's alma mater.

    "This [Kinchen's comments] obviously made Mr. Young upset," Dallas police Lt. Craig Miller said. "That conversation continues and there was more accusations against the University of Texas which prompted, in this case, Mr. Young to come back into the room where he just about exited."

    According to the police report, Kinchen sustained a bloody lip in the fight, but did not require medical attention.

    Titans spokesman Robbie Bohren said the team was aware of the incident and had contacted Young. He said the team was still gathering information.

    NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said in a tweet that the league "will look into it."

    The video shows Young conversing with Kinchen and a man indentified by police as the club's manager calmly before nearly exiting the room. Kinchen then flashed an upside-down "Hook 'em Horns" hand sign, causing Young to retaliate. Bystanders attempted to breakup the fight and the lights were briefly turned off before Young exited the room.

    Police told The Associated Press Young was not at the club when police responded to a call of a physical confrontation. His citation is punishable by a fine up to $500.

    A call to Young's attorney Scotty Allen was not returned and Young could not be reached for comment.

    Young returned to form this season after two troubled years in which he dealt with injuries and inconsistency on the field before being replaced by veteran Kerry Collins.

    In Sept. 2008, Nashville, Tenn. police were asked to search for Young after family members called the Titans informing them of their concern about his state of mind.

    Young was later located at a friend's house.

    The concern over Young's well-being came after he was booed in a victory over Jacksonville and left the game with a left knee injury.

    "What would you think, if you were tired of being ridiculed and persecuted and talked about and not being treated very well, what would you do? What kind of decision would you make?'' Young's mother Felecia Young told The Nashville Tennesssean in September 2008. "He may not want to deal with it [all], but you have to get to that point before you make that decision first."

    Titans coach Jeff Fisher was holding his annual...

    Dec. 3, 2004 wire reports

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee left tackle Michael Munoz had surgery Friday on his right shoulder to repair a torn rotator cuff muscle.

    Munoz had not been expected to play in Saturday's SEC championship game against No. 3 Auburn in Atlanta because of his sore shoulder, which he hurt on Nov. 20 in a victory against Vanderbilt.

    "Michael and his family are hopeful for a return late in the spring to pursue his NFL career," Vols head trainer Keith Clements said.

    Munoz is the son of Hall of Fame lineman Anthony Munoz. The two-time captain finished his Tennessee career starting all 46 games he played.

    Rob Bironas, former Titans kicker, killed in car crash

    Rob Bironas, former Titans kicker, killed in car crash

    Former Titans kicker Rob Bironas was killed in an overnight car crash in Nashville.

    He was 36.

    According to Metro police, Bironas was involved in a single-vehicle crash in the 800 block of Battery Lane around 11 p.m. Saturday.

    Bironas lost control of the SUV he was driving while traveling at a high rate of speed, and the vehicle went off the road and hit several trees before ending up in a drainage culvert, upside down.

    Bironas was transported Vanderbilt Medical Center, and pronounced dead on arrival.

    Metro Police spokesman Don Aaron said Bironas had turned on Battery Lane from Franklin Pike, and appeared to be headed home, not too far from where the crash occurred.

    Aaron said there was no evidence of alcohol on the scene.

    Bironas married Rachel Bradshaw, the daughter of Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw, in June. Aaron said a Metro police chaplain was with her shortly after the crash.

    A statement was posted on Bironas' social media accounts confirming his death hours after the wreck.

    "We appreciate your respect for the family's privacy and your prayers at this time," it read.

    Bironas kicked for the Titans for nine seasons. They released him in March.

    He had 1,032 points in his nine-year career, just 28 points behind Al Del Greco, the top scorer in the history of the Houston Oilers / Tennessee Titans organization, and he made 85.7 percent of his field-goal attempts (239 of 279) to rank fourth in NFL history in accuracy.

    Bironas made a franchise-record 11 game-winning field goals, including a 60-yarder against the Indianapolis Colts in 2006 that remains the longest field goal in Oilers or Titans history.

    Bironas worked out for the Lions earlier this week, and worked out for the Buccaneers earlier this offseason.
