Found May 29, 2012 on The Football Fan Spot:
Titus Young had been absent for Lions’ OTAs for a week or so and he was the only Lions wide receiver not present at Calvin Johnson’s ceremonial 1st pitch at the Tigers game a couple weeks ago. The Lions would not say publicly why Young was not present or even say if it was a team mandated thing or not, but multiple reports said it was for starting a fight with defensive back Louis Delmas. However, whatever the case, Young is back with the Lions at OTAs today. Young was a 2nd round pick of the Lions last year and he had a solid rookie year with 48 catches for 607 yards and 6 touchdowns. In his 2nd season in the league, he is expected to at least challenge veteran Nate Burleson for the starting job opposite Calvin Johnson. It’s unclear if his absence will hurt him in that attempt or not. There’s definite fantasy upside with Young this year, however.
