Lions WR Titus Young was absent from Monday’s offseason team activities following a fight with a teammate.

According to Anwar Richardson of the Detroit Free Press, Young punched S Louis Delmas last week during a voluntary workout. The team told the second-year receiver to not show up to the practice facility for the start of OTAs, and to not return until the team allows him to do so.

Young’s scuffle with Delmas is just the latest in a long line of discipline problems surrounding the Lions. Last season, DT Ndamukong Suh and head coach Jim Schwartz had well-publicized issues involving fights with opponents, and earlier in the offseason, two Lions players were arrested on drug charges.
