07:31 AM ET 11.20 | The Lions will be spending Thanksgiving this year without Titus Young. Young was sent home from the team's facility today because of his selfish behavior and will not play against the Houston Texans on Thursday. ... This marks the second time in six months that Young has been sent home from the team facility because of his immaturity. Young and teammate Louis Delmas fought during one of Detroit's voluntary workouts in mid-May. Delmas and Young got into a confrontation during an offseason workout. Young eventually punched Delmas when his teammate was not looking. Schwartz would not say this is Young's second strike, but the receiver is running out of chances. "I don't know if I'd classify it that way," Schwartz said. "His behavior is going to have to change."

Selfish behavior? What did he do, take all the scallops wrapped in bacon at the Losers' Post-Game Banquet on Sunday?

...Wonder if he had a father figure as a role model to listen to?

If he did he probably didn't listen to him either.

Dude needs to grow up and do it fast...

Wasn't there a thread about this guy in pre-season? About how he was really impressive, and was quietly assuming a role as a major weapon for Detroit while the media was all fawning over Megatron?

Sounds like he needs to take maturity lessons from Dez Bryant.

He's already taken lessons from Suh (or, "D-uh"), apparently.

Why are the Lions singling Young out from among all their immature underachievers?

Because they lost the last game and the heat is rising. If they had won Schwartz would have accepted his actions.

Yes. Plus he is only getting about 3 catches per game. so booting him is no loss.
