Bills QB Young eager to stake claim on backup job
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Three months into Vince Young's third chance to prove himself in what's been an up-and-down NFL career, the Buffalo Bills quarterback isn't yet satisfied with his performance or fully comfortable with the offense.
He says he feels ``OK,'' but still isn't happy, adding it's nothing that a little more playing time won't fix.
Young will get his opportunity Friday, when the Bills travel to play Minnesota. That's where Young will get his turn to run the second-team offense, after Tyler Thigpen had that role in Buffalo's preseason-opening loss to Washington last week.
Young has much to prove because his spot in Buffalo is not a lock. He and Thigpen, the returning backup, are competing for the No. 2 job, with the loser expected to be cut.
