Titus Young Releases Statement Addressing Recent Absence From Team

Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young, who reportedly got into a fight with teammate Louis Delmas and was later absent from team workouts, issued a brief statement Tuesday morning.

From the Detroit Lions official website:

"My recent actions have not always been up to the standards the Lions expect or the standards that I expect from myself. I am truly sorry for those times when I didn't meet those standards.

"My absence from the practice facility and the OTAs last week was necessary for both myself and the team.

"The time away from the team afforded me the opportunity to reflect and come to the realization that by putting those incidents behind me I will be able to focus on becoming the best teammate and player that I can be."

Tim Twentyman, a Lions reporter, tweeted Tuesday that Young was now back and working out with the team:

Young, a 2011 second-round draft pick out of Boise State, caught 48 passes last season for 607 yards and six touchdowns.
