Titus Young’s lingering hamstring injury was cause for concern as his inability practice combined with ineffectiveness from Derrick Williams brought about questions a week ago regarding the Lions’ depth at wide receiver. Since then, Maurice Stovall put together an impressive performance in Cleveland, Rashied Davis continues to show his value to the team and Titus Young was back at practice.
Young got some work in yesterday and returned to full team drills today. Jon Kreger had the following to say via a Lions RapidReport on CBSsports.com:
WR Titus Young participated fully in 11-on-11 drills for the first time Monday. Young cut well over the middle, making several nice moves to create space. His speed after the catch is impressive. He’s got the extra gear Detroit drafted him for. It’ll be interesting to track his progress as he gets up to full speed.
The good news was short-lived however. Chris McCosky reported the following on twitter:
Looks like Titus Young has tweaked the hammy again. Pulled out of team drill. Got wrapped and is limping
Sigh. It looks like this injury will test the patience of fans, coaches and player alike.
Whether or not Young actually did tweak the injury appears up for debate as Paula Pasche wrote that he is being eased back:
Young, who was out with a hamstring, is being gradually brought back. He did more Monday than Sunday, but isn’t close to being unrestricted. He was out of Monday’s practice prior to team drills and had a trainer rewrap his leg. He stood out and watched until the end of practice.
