Titus Young's Statement On His Absence From Lions OTAs

Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young has been absent from OTAs after an incident with teammate Louis Delmas, being held out by the team. Young reportedly punched Delmas in the face, resulting in the wide receiver missing a week of OTAs.

Young has released a statement about his absence from practices:

"My recent actions have not always been up to the standards the Lions expect or the standards that I expect from myself. I am truly sorry for those times when I didn't meet those standards.

"My absence from the practice facility and the OTAs last week was necessary for both myself and the team.

"The time away from the team afforded me the opportunity to reflect and come to the realization that by putting those incidents behind me I will be able to focus on becoming the best teammate and player that I can be."

There has been no announcement in regards to when Young will return to the voluntary practices.
