Young sorry for mistake at strip club

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Vince Young had done almost everything right since Tennessee owner Bud Adams gave him his job back last fall.

Now he’s busy explaining — and apologizing — for an incident at a Dallas strip club. Even his coach is wondering if Young’s poor decision will be another setback.

“I’d like to think he’s learned a lesson, had no business making the decision that he made and obviously he’s got to deal with those consequences,” coach Jeff Fisher said Monday. “I can’t comment any further. The league will look into it. The commissioner is very strict about these type of things, and I’m sure we’ll hear from him after we get more information.”

Young apologized to the Titans, his teammates, his family and fans for his role in a fight early Sunday morning. Young said he hopes commissioner Roger Goodell doesn’t come down hard on him with a suspension because he has owned up to his mistake.

The Titans’ second game of the 2010 season Sept. 19 is against Pittsburgh, which will be without Ben Roethlisberger because of his own suspension.

Young was in Dallas Sunday for an autograph session. He said he was headed back to his hotel when he decided to go out on the town with a friend.
