NASHVILLE, Oct. 29 (UPI) -- Quarterback Vince Young, a former first-round pick, will start Sunday for the first time this season when the Tennessee Titans are home to Jacksonville.

Young, the third overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft out of Texas, has played sparingly since the 2008 season-opener last September behind veteran Kerry Collins.

A 0-7 start and a lobbying effort by team owner Bud Adams likely led Coach Jeff Fisher to announce Young's start following Thursday's practice.

"I'm still in Kerry Collins' corner because I don't believe that our record is a reflection of the quarterback play," Fisher told The Tennessean. "As far as the future is concerned, I'm not one of those coaches who's going to have musical chairs at the quarterback position."

Young is 0-for-5 with an interception in two games this season, but has thrown 22 touchdown passes in his career.
