Nate Burleson: Lions need less emotion sometimes

Nate Burleson says he didn't see what fellow Detroit Lions receiver Titus Young did to get himself dismissed from team workouts this week. Burleson says he doesn't know if Young punched, pushed or shoved safety Louis Delmas. But he says the Lions are a tough team that needs to learn how to dial down emotions at times. Burleson says it will be business as usual for Young...

2 game suspension for Mikel Leshoure?

After missing all of last season with injury, Mikel Leshoure got arrested twice this offseason in marijuana related incidents. Given that he has a past criminal history dating back to his time at Illinois, most expect him to be given some sort of suspension by commissioner Roger Goodell, which would further delay the 2nd round pick’s NFL debut. According to the Detroit News, that...

Lions’ Titus Young banned from practice?

It was originally reported that Lions’ 2nd year receiver Titus Young was absent from OTAs because he had been suspended from practice by the team, following a fight with safety Louis Delmas. This was according to noted beat writer Anwar Richardson. However, multiple reports have refuted that report, including the official website of the Detroit Lions. If Young has indeed been suspended...

Lions reportedly ban Titus Young from OTA’s for punching Louis Delmas

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, Young has been banned from Allen Park indefinitely after he reportedly punched safety...

Lions expect both Jahvid Best and Mikel Leshoure to be healthy

The Lions have used picks in the first 2 rounds on running backs in their last two drafts prior to this year, as well as a 3rd round pick on a running back in 2008, yet they keep having to turn to the mediocre and aging Maurice Morris down the stretch to get significant carries for them. This is because Jahvid Best, a 1st rounder in 2010, Mikel Leshoure, a 2nd rounder in 2011, and...

Is Titus Young’s ‘suckerpunch’ suspension worthy?

Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young’s “suckerpunching” of teammate Louis Delmas is most definitely suspension-worthy. Young, entering his second season with the Lions, had a disagreement Monday during an optional team practice with Delmas, deciding to blindside him with a fist rather than settling the matter in more amicable, mature terms. Lions coach Jim Schwartz needs to [...]

Detroit Lions Return 21 of 22 Starters

Offense:   Quarterback:  Matthew Stafford:  The 2011 season was a tremendous and breakthrough season for Stafford.  After starting only 13 games in his first two seasons, Stafford started in every game in 2011, and was one of the top passers with 5,038 yards for 41 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.  Look for Stafford to have another great year spreading the ball to his numerous...

Detroit Lions: Titus Young Barred From OTAs

Detroit wide receiver Titus Young was not at Detroit's OTAs Monday after the team decided he couldn't participate for fighting with teammate Louis Delmas.

Titus Young Barred From OTAs

Wide receiver Titus Young has been barred from OTAs with the Lions for fighting with teammate Louis Delmas last week, according to Anwar Richardson of Michigan Live. Fantasy Spin: It is uncertain when Young will be allowed to return to the team. So while Young will still get a fair shot to push Nate Burleson for the No. 2 role in the Lions aerial attack, this misstep will push him...

Stafford gives back in big way

ALLEN PARK, Mich. It probably seemed a little strange when Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford started bidding on the Monday Night Football ticket package that he had donated himself to the University of Michigan Mott Childrens Hospital fund-raiser over the weekend. Change of heart? No, just a big heart. Stafford bought his own ticket package for the Lions-Chicago Bears...

Follow updates from Detroit Lions insider Mike Mady, who is covering the team from the Allen Park headquarters.

Titus Young sucker punched Louis Delmas

We scratched our heads a year ago when the Detroit Lions selected Titus Young out of Boise State in the 2nd round, but he did do pretty decent on a team as rookie #3 receiver. But then the Lions forced us to scratch our head again with the selection of Ryan Broyles in the 2nd [...]
