Titus Young Allegedly Punched Louis Delmas When He Wasn't Looking, According To Report

New, comments

Anwar Richardson has posted the details of what allegedly happened between Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young and safety Louis Delmas last week. According to Richardson, Young and Delmas got into a confrontation during one of the team's workouts (as part of the offseason training program). The confrontation resulted in Young allegedly punching Delmas "when he was not looking."

The resulting punishment of Young's alleged sucker punch is that he has been banned from the team's voluntary workouts, according to Richardson. I'm assuming this ban includes both regular workouts as part of the training program and OTAs considering he wasn't at Monday's organized team activity.

Lions head coach Jim Schwartz was asked about the alleged fight but basically declined to comment on it.

"This is the voluntary part of our offseason program," Schwartz said. "There is no need to comment. It sort of entails that it is not voluntary."

For those keeping score at home, Young is now the fourth member of the Lions' 2011 draft class to be involved in an off-field incident this offseason. Three of the picks from last year were caught with marijuana earlier in the offseason, and now Young appears to be in hot water with the team after his confrontation with Delmas.
