Detroit Lions WR Titus Young Benched
According to the Lions they are benching Young and not suspending for the game due to behavior that head coach Jim Schwartz has described as “unacceptable” during the Lions 24-20 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
Schwartz also went on to say the following about his decision to bench Young, “When you play a team sport, you need to put team before yourself. There’s no room for selfish behavior.” That is ground that we’ve already covered, and I thought that we would be past this, but we haven’t been. His behavior on Sunday was unacceptable, and it hurt the team, particularly on offense.”
Schwartz also informed the media that Young was sent home from the team’s practice facility on Monday and that he would be inactive for the game versus the Texans on Thursday afternoon.
So far this season Young has hauled in 33 catches for 383 yards and four touchdowns will taking the role as the team’s number two receiver in place of the injured Nate Burleson who is out for the remainder of the season with a broken leg.
Unfortunately Young is no stranger to disciplinary action as he was reprimanded by the team for getting into a physical altercation with teammate, safety Louis Delmas last off-season and while at Boise State he was suspended for nearly the entire 2008 season as a result of disciplinary actions.
