The Lions benched Titus Young for their final possession of Week 11 after OC Scott Linehan and WRs coach Shawn Jefferson had a "heated exchange" on the sideline about Young.
Beat writer Dave Birkett noticed Jefferson mouth, "Take him out. I can't do it no more," after Matthew Stafford threw four straight incompletions, including two in Young's direction. Young did not play on the next possession. "I'd rather not go into it," coach Jim Schwartz said after the game. "Everybody was disappointed not to be able to score a touchdown on that last drive." Young has loads of talent in a theoretically high-scoring offense, but mental mistakes have been an issue. He's got lots of upside, but lots of risk from a fantasy standpoint.
