NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young was involved in a fight during practice Wednesday evening.

He threw a punch at safety Donnie Nickey before teammates helped separate the two.

The incident happened after Nickey used a tackle around the neck in taking down receiver Courtney Roby.

Veteran center Kevin Mawae helped push Young away from the scrum, while tight end Bo Scaife pushed Nickey to try and calm things down.

Young eventually walked away shouting and clearly wasn't happy.

Coach Jeff Fisher pulled the team together to help cool down tempers. The Titans finished up the session with another period, and Fisher had Young, Nickey and Roby all talk to each other and reporters.
