Via their official website, the Lions insist WR Titus Young's OTA absence is "not the result of any punitive action by the team."
All the smoke suggested Young was ordered to stay away from this week's "voluntary" workouts, but DetroitLions.com's Tim Twentyman insists it's unknown why Young isn't attending. "That's an answer Young will have to provide when he eventually joins his teammates." Via Twentyman, the Lions have acknowledged Young had an "incident" with teammate Louis Delmas last week. It would, of course, be worse if Young was staying away from the team on his own volition.
