Titus Young sent home by Lions, will be inactive this week

Al Messerschmidt

The Detroit Lions sent Titus Young home from the team facility on Monday and are planning for him to be inactive this week.

The Detroit Lions will not have wide receiver Titus Young this week against the Houston Texans. It's not because of an injury or anything like that, though. Rather, Young is going to be inactive as a result of his behavior on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. Also, this stems from Young being sent home from the Lions' facility on Monday, according to Jim Schwartz.

What exactly did Young do? Here are a few snippets of what Schwartz had to say on Monday:

It turns out that the heated exchange between wide receivers coach Shawn Jefferson and offensive coordinator Scott Linehan was actually over Young. As noted by Dave Birkett, Jefferson appeared to say, "Take him out. I can't do it no more." Schwartz said on Monday that Jefferson and Linehan were actually on the same page. Given that the Lions are making Young inactive this week, it appears Jefferson and Linehan have decided that enough is enough.

This is extremely disappointing considering what happened with Young in the summer. After being barred from the team facility for allegedly sucker-punching Louis Delmas, Young returned seemingly as a new person. Everybody talked positively about his character and his improvement on the field, but all of that has been stripped away by what has happened so far this season.

There's no doubt that Young has the potential to be a great player, but he is running out of chances to show that with the Lions.
