Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since being exiled from the team for disciplinary reasons, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.
Birkett reports that Young, who normally sat in the front of the stretching row after Nate Burleson got hurt, sat toward the back in the Lions' practice on Wednesday. The embattled wide receiver went last in most of the receiver drills and took reps with the second team offense.
Young was sent home by the Lions after their loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 11. In that game, the 23-year-old purposely lined up in the wrong spots on offense and got into it with receivers coach Shawn Jefferson.
For the season, Young has 33 catches for 383 yards and four touchdowns. He enjoyed a breakout game on Oct. 28 against the Seattle Seahawks, when he caught nine passes for 100 yards and two scores.
