Titus Young's future in Detroit in unclear after Jim Schwartz did not allow him to attend the Lions' game against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said wide receiver Titus Young's future with the Detroit Lions is "yet to be seen" following Young's conduct against the Green Bay Packers in Week 11, according to Anwar S. Richardson of MLive.com.

Against the Packers, Young felt he was not receiving the ball enough in the Lions' offense and intentionally lined up in the wrong position as a protest. Young practiced during the week, but Schwartz did not allow him to attend their game on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts following the detrimental behavior.

When asked about his decision, Schwartz said the following:

"Because we're going to concentrate on the 46 that were active and thought that was best," Schwartz said. "I'm going to do what's best for the team, and I thought that what was best for the team today."

Young has the third most targets on the Lions behind wide receiver Calvin Johnson and tight end Brandon Pettigrew. He has 33 receptions for 383 yards and four touchdowns in 10 games for Detroit this season.

He was selected by the Lions in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft.
