Nick Fairley Participating In Tuesday's Lions OTA

Following his arrest early Sunday for driving under the influence and attempting to elude police, it wasn't clear if Detroit Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley would be at the team's OTA session on Tuesday. Like wide receiver Titus Young, who returned from a week-long absence today, it was possible that Fairley could spend some time away from the team for his most recent transgression.

As it turns out, Fairley is in fact at the Lions' facility today. He is taking part in the organized team activity, and he seems to be in good spirits despite what happened over the weekend.

Although Fairley and Young are at the OTA session, don't expect to hear much from them. According to Paula Pasche, Fairley and Young won't be available for comment, and Chris McCosky reports that the Lions have decided to close the locker room to the media following practice. I understand why the Lions are doing this, but players -- Fairley and Young included -- are eventually going to face questions about what has gone on off the field. Why delay the inevitable?
