Lions coach Jim Schwartz said it’s “too soon to tell” whether WR Titus Young will be active for Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts after he didn’t attend last week’s Thanksgiving loss to the Houston Texans.
“We’ll see, as we get later in the week, who we think the best 46 to play the Colts are and if he’s one of them, he will,” Schwartz said. “If not, then he’ll go back to work and work the next week.”
One of the Lions’ most talented receivers when he’s right, Young has drawn the ire of coaches and teammates for his selfish behavior on the field.
In a loss to the Green Bay Packers two weeks ago, he purposely lined up in the wrong spot on the field multiple times and mouthed off to receivers coach Shawn Jefferson on the sideline before being removed for the game’s final series.
Young is now behind Ryan Broyles and Mike Thomas in the pecking order, so he may not be able to contribute very much for the remainder of the season. He can be cut in most formats.
