Titus Young back at Lions practice; five others sit out

Posted by ttwentyman on November 28, 2012 – 1:03 pm

Receiver Titus Young returned to the portions of Lions practice open to the media today after more than a week away from the team.

Young was inactive for the Thanksgiving Day Game against the Texans and did not practice last week because of disciplinary reasons following the team’s loss to the Packers.

“He needed and the team needed a little time away,” Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said Tuesday when Young wasn’t on the practice field. “And that’s not the same with the other inactive guys. But again, it’s not going to be based on what he does away from here, it’s what he does when he’s here with the team.”

Young took reps with the second team and went last in a number of receiving drills during the individual portion of practice. It appears Young will have to earn the trust back from both his head coach and his teammates before he can be an expected contributor on Sunday.

The Lions also welcomed guard Rob Sims and right tackle Gosder Cherilus back at practice. Both players sat out of yesterday’s “bonus practice.”

The team was without defensive end Cliff Avril, safety Louis Delmas, left tackle Jeff Backus, defensive tackle Corey Williams and running back Mikel Leshoure.

The first injury report of the week will be released at 4p.m. today on Detroitlions.com.

    Great News! With the addition of Titus Young SR.,this will give the Lions’ Offense a Boost vs. the Colts. I was Also happy to hear that Commisioner Goodall Felt the Ref. Took out His errror,(Texans vs. Lions), on Jim Swartz.. I believe Commisioner Goodall said,” Texan Player Forsett Was Down by Contact and ending up Punishing The Lions by adding the Iligetimate Touchdown to the scoreboard.”
    I believe, Coach Jm Swartz, Threw the chalenge flag at the spot Forsett was down by contact, way before Forsett went into the endzone. The commisioner is Right! That is what I thought when I saw what had happened. In Closing, I really do believe “Suh” had no Idea, as he was falling, that he had touched, Texan QB Shaub. His Head was turning the other way. One call, against the Texan’s should’ve have led to an Ejection. That was the Deliberate helmet to helmet hit that S. Logan took , as he motioned for a Fair catch. May God Bless everyone.

    Broyles proved on Thanksgiving he should be lined up opposite of Megatron. Drop Titus to third wr or maybe 4th option and make him earn his way back

    if the lions play titus young, i am done as a lions fan. he is a major reason why we are not going to the playoffs. he doesn’t care if the lions win or lose as long as he gets his check. lions will never amount to anything, if they can’t get rid of a bad apple & titus young is as big a slacker as you will find in the nfl. that is why the lions had to waste a #2 pick on a wide receiver, when the defense desperately needed to be upgraded. didn’t stafford look a lot better without him? that was against houston. one of the best teams in the nfl. titus don’t let him practice. CUT HIM IMMEDIATELY!
