Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young's play this season has been affected by a knee injury, coach Jim Schwartz said on Wednesday. Schwartz said (via The Detroit Free Press) that Young has had trouble getting in sync with the offense because of how much time he's missed in practice. Young was back at practice on Thursday and is expected to play on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Impact: Schwartz added that he expects Young to be a productive players for the Lions this season, but fantasy owners should remain patient. Young remains behind Calvin Johnson, Nate Burleson and Brandon Pettigrew as options in Detroit's passing game. Take away his Hail Mary touchdown catch in Week 3 and he has just eight catches for 71 yards and no touchdowns.
