Packers conclude preseason, lose 27-13



AP Sports Writer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Vince Young ran for a touchdown and threw for another in his strongest performance this preseason, and the Tennessee Titans beat the Green Bay Packers 27-13 on Thursday night.

On a night where not getting hurt was the top goal, Green Bay had a handful of players injured with the most worrisome rookie defensive tackle B.J. Raji -- the No. 9 draft pick overall. Raji hurt his ankle after having three tackles and a sack.

Aaron Rodgers lasted one series for the Packers and went three-and-out. Kerry Collins also played only one series and just missed a touchdown pass with a throw that was a little high to Justin Gage.

The Titans (3-2) and Packers (3-1) have finished exhibition play against each other the last eight years, with Tennessee going 6-2.
