Detroit Lions WR Titus Young Banned From OTA’s For Punching S Louis Delmas
Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young showed plenty of potential during his rookie season in 2011 after catching 48 passes for 607 yards to go along with six touchdowns. Expectations may be even higher in 2012 for Young after an impressive rookie season, but the former Boise State star may need to to work on his temper issues before that happens after an incident with one of his teammates.
Young has officially been banned from organized team activities after the wideout punched safety Louis Delmas last week. While the details of the incident are still coming in, this is obviously one of those situations teams hate to deal with as they should be avoided at all costs–especially when it involves two teammates fighting with each other.
Sadly, this incident just adds fuel to the fire for a Detroit team that established a negative reputation last season–mainly because of incidents during the 2011 season involving Ndamukong Suh and Jim Swartz. Young is a smart player that could make a huge impact for the Lions during his second season–so let’s hope this incident gets handled properly and the wideout can focus his attention on helping the team get back to postseason in 2012.
On the bright side, at least Detroit’s top wideout–Calvin Johnson–wasn’t the one involved with this incident.
