DETROIT - Titus Young is inactive for the Lions for the second consecutive week.
Reports began surfacing around 11 a.m. that Young was not at Ford Field.
The wide receiver returned to practice this week after being sent home from team headquarters before the Thanksgiving game against Houston two weeks ago.
Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said Friday it was going to come down to Sunday to decide if Young would dress.
Young's attitude has been a point of distraction in his two seasons with Detroit. He sucker punched teammate Louis Delmas in the offseason, which led to a temporary time away from the team.
During a brief session with reporters Friday, Young showed no signs of regret or remorse. He spoke tersely without speaking longer than a sentence for eight different questions.
