Originally written November 29, 2012 on It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
Second-year Lions wide receiver Titus Young is back on the practice field after being kicked out of practice ten days ago and being made inactive for the Thanksgiving Day game against Houston.  And now we have learned why Young got into a bickering match with Lions’ receivers coach Shawn Jefferson on the sidelines during the Green Bay game two weeks ago. Per Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press: “In a loss to the Green Bay Packers two weeks ago, he (Young) purposely lined up in the wrong spot on the field multiple times…” WHAT?!  According to a report on 97.1 The Ticket in Detroit, Young often times lined up in tight end Tony Scheffler’s spot on the field when Scheffler was split out wide.  Purposely. And this isn’t Young’s first rodeo with being undisciplined.  Last year during his rookie season, he was thrown out of practice for sucker punching Lions safety Louis Delmas.  He has racked up multiple personal foul penalties for losing his cool.  And to make matters worse, he hasn’t lived up to his second-round billing this season. Young had a prima donna stigma coming out of Boise State.  But after a decent rookie campaign in which in he racked up 48 catches for 607 yards and six touchdowns, he has a mere 33 grabs for 383 yards with four scores (with 46 yards and one touchdown coming from a Hail Mary against Tennessee) in 2012.  Head coach Jim Schwartz said that despite being temporarily booted from the team, Young was always a part of the Lions organization. “He’s always been a member of the team,” Schwartz said. “Last week, he was inactive and like I said yesterday, we needed some time apart to get some stuff straight. He’s a member of the team now, but one more goof-up (and his track record shows one can be expected) and he needs to be cut.  The Lions are past due on the discipline front. Detroit Free Press
