Young isn't flying under radar after replacing Nate Burleson

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - The Detroit Lions have found someone to take advantage of all the attention Calvin Johnson gets from opposing defenses.

His name is Titus Young.

Young has 15 receptions for 181 yards and two touchdowns in the last two games, surpassing his production from the first five games combined. He has been under the radar for much of his short career, but the second-year pro isn't anymore.

Young has flourished since Nate Burleson broke his right leg in a loss on Oct. 22 at Chicago. He will be looking to shine again when Detroit plays at Jacksonville on Sunday.

Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey says Young is a player his team has to be aware of because of his speed and ability to gain yards after the catch.
