Lions WR Titus Young back at OTA practice

Posted by ttwentyman on May 29, 2012 – 10:44 am

Lions receiver Titus Young is back with his teammates Tuesday participating in the team’s Organized Team Activity (OTA).

Young did not participate in voluntary practices last week after he was involved in a scuffle with safety Louis Delmas the previous week, in which Young reportedly punched Delmas.

He released this statement before Tuesday’s practice:

“My recent actions have not always been up to the standards the Lions expect or the standards that I expect from myself. I am truly sorry for those times when I didn’t meet those standards,” he said.

“My absence from the practice facility and the OTAs last week was necessary for both myself and the team.

“The time away from the team afforded me the opportunity to reflect and come to the realization that by putting those incidents behind me I will be able to focus on becoming the best teammate and player that I can be.”

Young is expected to play a larger role in the offense this season after catching 48 passes for 607 yards and six touchdowns as a rookie.
