When Lions organized team activities began on Monday morning, receiver Titus Young was not in attendance. Unlike others who are nursing injuries or attending to personal matters, Young had a different reason for not taking part: He is not welcome at the team’s facilities.  According to MLive.com, Young has been banned from Allen Park indefinitely after he reportedly punched safety Louis Delmas during voluntary workouts last week when Delmas wasn’t looking.

Delmas and Young got into a fight over an unknown issue, but it was apparently the punch itself that the team deemed unacceptable. Delmas was present at the start of OTAs and there is no word of him having been punished in any way.

“This is the voluntary part of our offseason program,” Lions coach Jim Schwartz said. “There is no need to comment. It sort of entails that it is not voluntary. I’m not going to comment on any other thing, other than (Stephen) Tulloch (who will miss the next few weeks to an injury) because Tulloch will be down for a significant period of time.”

Voluntary means those who are allowed at the facilites are welcome, so chances are that means nothing with regard to Young. As Eye on College Football pointed out, the second-year receiver out of Boise State has had temper problems since college. He was suspended indefinitely at Boise State for disciplinary problems before rebounding to become a major part of the Broncos’ offense. Last season, he punched a Saints player in the face when Detroit was down 17 points against New Orleans and attempting to get back in the game. As far as non-football issues are concerned, this obviously isn’t a great way for Young to begin the new season.
