Titus Young reportedly sucker punches Delmas
MLIVE By Anwar S. Richardson
ALLEN PARK -- Detroit Lions receiver Titus Young was not allowed to participate in organized team activities today due to a fight last week with safety Louis Delmas, according to sources.
Young and Delmas fought during one of Detroit's voluntary workouts last week. According to sources, Delmas and Young got into a confrontation during the workout. Young allegedly punched Delmas when he was not looking.
As a result, the team is disciplining Young by not allowing him to participate in voluntary workouts. Delmas was at Monday's OTA sessions and participated.
Lions coach Jim Schwartz was asked about the incident after practice, but he declined to speak about 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. I'm not going to comment on any other thing, other than (Stephen) Tulloch (who will miss the next few weeks to an injury) because Tulloch will be down for a significant period of time."
When Schwartz was asked if he would specifically talk about Young's incident with Delmas, his response was, "nope."
This is the fourth incident involving a player from Detroit's 2011 NFL Draft class this offseason.
Lions running back Mikel Leshoure was arrested twice for marijuana possession, while defensive tackle Nick Fairley and Johnny Culbreath were each arrested this offseason for marijuana possession. Young was not criminally charged for last week's incident.
Could the drafting of Broyles been a pre-cursor to a Titus trade? This isn't his first run in with a teammate. SEE: Dom Raiola Grow up!
