Detroit Lions receiver Titus Young continues to sit out practice for disciplinary reasons, and faces an uncertain future with the organization.

More than a week after being sent home for disciplinary reasons, Detroit Lions receiver Titus Young was a no-show at Tuesday's practice and continues to remain away from the team according to a report by Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.

The 23-year-old Young reportedly lined up in the wrong spot on numerous occasions on purpose against the Packers in Week 11, and has not seen the field since. In addition to getting into a well-publicized spat with Lions safety Louis Delmas last summer in training camp that ultimately ended in the two coming to blows, Young's poor attitude has rubbed those inside the organization the wrong way since he was selected with the 44th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.

Though Lions coach Jim Schwartz indicated to Birkett that Young could "potentially" work his way back on the field this season, it's clear the young receiver will need to grow up rather quickly if he hopes to have a future with Detroit's organization. While he still ranks third on the team in both receptions and receiving yards through 11 games, Young's childish attitude has quickly made him a player the Lions no longer view in a positive light.
