DETROIT, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young, who feuded with the coaching staff this past season, has been released, the team said Monday.

Young missed the Lions' final six games in 2012 after getting into a fight with wide receivers coach Shawn Jefferson along the sidelines during Detroit's Nov. 11 loss to Green Bay.


The 23-year-old receiver was sent home from practice by head Coach Jim Schwartz shortly thereafter and eventually placed on injured reserve for the rest of the season.

Young ended the season with 33 catches for 383 yards and four touchdowns after a dazzling 2011 rookie campaign during which he hauled down 48 passes for 607 yards and six touchdowns.
