Wide receiver Titus Young is back to practicing with the Lions, although for now he has been demoted to the second team offense. Young missed over a week of practice and one game for disciplinary reasons.

The day after the Lions lost to the Packers, coach Jim Schwartz sent Young home because he was negatively affecting practice. The head coach added that Young was putting himself above the team, so Schwartz suspended Young from practice for a week and listed him as inactive against the Texans on Thanksgiving.
