Lions quiet after Titus Young-Louis Delmas spat

Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young has reportedly been barred from the team's facility indefinitely after getting into a fight with safety Louis Delmas. Detroit opened OTAs on Monday, and Delmas was in attendance.

So why did one guy get in trouble and the other didn't?

The Detroit News reported that Young "sucker punched" Delmas after the two exchanged words. Young is known for being hot-headed, but his teammates didn't sound worried.

"Things happen. They will be fine," defensive end Cliff Avril said on his Twitter page.

Still, Young's actions seem to have upset his wide receiver teammates. Calvin Johnson threw out the first pitch at the Detroit Tigers game on Friday. He had invited all the receivers to watch the game in a suite with him. That invitation to Young was rescinded, although it's unclear if Johnson or the Lions made that decision.

"We can't talk about that," Johnson said.

Lions coach Jim Schwartz also didn't want to speak about the topic Monday. It feels like last season's drama in Detroit never ended.
