Lions WR Titus Young allowed to practice with team

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young has returned to the team.

Young practiced Wednesday for the first time since the Lions told him to stay away. He was deactivated for Detroit's 34-31 overtime loss to Houston last week because coach Jim Schwartz said his behavior was "unacceptable" during the previous setback to Green Bay.

The second-year pro, a second-round draft pick, from Boise State has 33 catches for 383 yards and four touchdowns this season. He had 48 receptions for 607 yards and 6 TDs last year.

Young was in the back of the line as receivers went through various drills Wednesday while the media had access to practice. He is not expected to speak with the reporters until Friday.
