Originally written November 19, 2012 on Down and Distance:
Per a report from NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal, Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young will be inactive for the team’s Thanksgiving Day game versus the Houston Texans for his actions during Sunday’s loss versus the Packers. Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said that young was benched for the final three plays Sunday, in part because he lined in up in the wrong spot on a second down play in the red zone. After the benching, cameras caught a heated exchanged between wide receivers coach Shawn Jefferson and offensive coordinator Scott Linehan. Young was told not to report to the team’s facility Monday, and this is the second time this year Young has been told to remain away from the practice field. This past off season, he was reportedly sent home after sucker punching teammate Louis Delmas. Drafted out of Boise State  in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Lions, Young has played in 26 games for the Lions and caught 81 pass for 990 yards and ten touchdowns. In ten games this year, he has 33 receptions for 383 yards and four touchdowns.     Follow us on Twitter @DownandDistance Down and Distance Columnist - Shane Richardson @Shaner021The post Report: Lions Receiver Titus Young Benched for Bad Behavior appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
