Jeff Fisher, on Vince Young's apology, on Wednesday: "He texted me and apologized."
Fisher, meeting with the media, was asked if he'd rather have had an in-person apology.
"I'm not a real big text guy, okay? I'm not really ino this new-age stuff. I don't twit or tweet, but I think face-to-face is a man thing, okay?"
Fisher reiterated that, at some point, quarterback and coach would meet.
"Of course, there's gonna be a meeting, but right now we're on to the Texans. That's the most important thing."

Vince Young has apologized to Jeff Fisher.
True, he texted his apology, but it was an apology nonetheless, sources have told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Young, according to ESPN, "thanked Fisher for the opportunity to play for the Titans and wished him and the team good luck for the rest of the season. Young ended the text by asking Fisher to have more faith and confidence in him moving forward, and said that they each wanted the same thing -- to win a Super Bowl."

After tearing a flexor tendon in his thumb in the Titans' loss to the Redskins, Young, who'd passed for 1,255 yards and 10 touchdowns, will miss the rest of the season and will have a pin inserted in the thumb in upcoming surgery. Here's a recap on the dustup: It was that injury that triggered the flareup with Fisher. The coach declined to put Young back into the game, Young threw his pads and jersey into the stands afterward and muttered under his breath during Fisher's postgame talk to players and walked out.
