Lions' Young won't be suspended

The SportsXchange

Despite speculation that Lions wide receiver Titus Young might be suspended for head-butting an opponent last Sunday, the team has decided he has learned his lesson and will let him play in Sunday's game against the 49ers, the Detroit News reported.

Young received a personal foul for head-butting St. Louis Rams cornerback Janoris Jenkins on Sunday, and he was benched at the start of the third quarter as a result.

But coaches say he has responded well this week.

"He's worked hard, ready to go and contribute and do a great job for us," offensive coordinator Scott Linehan told the News. "We've got great leadership. I think guys understand that, and he's still a young player. He learned just being accountable; that's a great place to start."
