Where Randy Moss goes, messes seem to follow. That's exactly what's going on right now in Tennessee.

It all starts with QB Vince Young, who first tore a tendon in his thumb during Sunday's loss to the Redskins, then proceeded to get into a verbal confrontation with head coach Jeff Fisher after the game. Whether Young is healthy enough to play or not, Fisher already has indicated that Young will not be the team's starter, and there's a good chance he will not play another down for the Titans.

With Kerry Collins (calf) sidelined for a few more weeks, Rusty Smith will take over as Tennessee's signalcaller beginning this week at Houston. Smith, a 2010 sixth-round pick from Florida Atlantic, completed 3-of-9 passes for 62 yards and an interception in limited action Sunday, and struggles are obviously likely for the rookie. That's bad news for Moss, who has just one catch through two games with his new club and has to adjust to yet another QB, this one far less experienced than the others.

The only Titan whose value should remain steady is RB Chris Johnson, who had 21-130-0 on Sunday. Defenses will still have to respect Moss' ability, leaving room for Johnson to run. He should continue to be an elite option.
