11:05 AM ET 11.22 | The Detroit Lions will be without wide receiver Titus Young on Thanksgiving Day when they host the Houston Texans but it won't be because of injury. The Lions benched Young after some sort of "unacceptable" behavior in the Lions' Week 11 game against the Green Bay Packers. "When you play a team sport, you need to put team before yourself," Schwartz said earlier this week. "There's no room for selfish behavior." The Lions and Texans are the first game on Thanksgiving Day.

What happened? Did Titus Young refuse to behave like a badass goon, so he didn't fit in with the Lions and the Schwartz Philosophy?

Sounds to me like he told the coach to go F himself

Texans going Lion hunting soon, Stafford is either having a bad year or a quick end to a career.

T. Young would have cost the Lions more on the field than off. Perhaps he will be able to play a big persons game when he grows up.
