Lions' Young benched for head butt

Detroit Lions receiver Titus Young was benched Sunday after head butting St. Louis Rams cornerback Janoris Jenkins.

"He didn't do a smart thing," Schwartz said. "We knew what was going to happen in some situations. He and a couple of guys (Jenkins and Rams defensive back Cortland Finnegan) were going back and forth, and the whole thing was right in front of me. It looked like he was going to do the right thing and walk away, but at the last second he turned and made a really dumb decision."

Young was also sent home this summer for sucker punching teammate Louis Delmas during offseason workouts. He received a 15-year penalty for the head butt on Jenkins.
