Titus Young will be inactive vs. Texans

On Thanksgiving, Lions receiver Titus Young won't be watching me play in an NFL game. Then again, I won't be watching Young play in an NFL game, either.

Arguably the league's most immature player (that's being kind), Young has been sent home by the Lions today and he will be inactive for Thursday's matchup against the Texans.

On Sunday, he was responsible for penalties on back-to-back plays and also lined up incorrectly that ultimately led to a Gosder Cherilus false start.

Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press has described Young's status as being "week-to-week."

"When you play a game like football, it’s a team sport and players have obligations to the team and Titus hasn’t done a very good job of fulfilling those obligations this week and recently," Lions coach Jim Schwartz said. "He’ll be inactive this week and we’ll plug the other guys in and go on."

''When you play a team sport, you need to put team before yourself,'' Schwartz said (via AP). ''There's no room for selfish behavior.''

Back in May, Young was banned from OTAs after sucker-punching teammate Louis Delmas.

Considering the Lions are 4-6 and probably need to win out just to have a shot at making the playoffs, benching a talented player like Young makes me wonder how much longer he'll be a Lion.
