The Detroit Lions placed WRs Titus Young (knee) and Ryan Broyles (knee) on the Injured Reserve Tuesday, Dec. 4. The team sent Young home twice in the past three weeks due to behavior issues. Also, the team released S Erik Coleman, WR Kris Durham was promoted to the active roster from the practice squad and signed free-agent S Tyrell Johnson (Vikings) and WR Troy Burrell (Lions) to the practice squad.

Footballguys view: Young has likely played his last game with the Lions. His attitude problems were too much for the team and Young is a candidate to be released in 2013.

  Lions | Erik Coleman trying to secure starting job    Sun Jun 17, 10:03 PM

Detroit Lions SS Erik Coleman is eight pounds lighter this offseason, and he said Sunday, June 17, that he is at the same weight and in the same shape as he was entering the 2008 and 2009 seasons with the Atlanta Falcons. In those two seasons, he started all 16 regular season games in each year, and posted 127 and 139 tackles.

Footballguys view: Coleman has worked with the first-team a lot this offseason due to injuries at the position. The starting safety spot opposite FS Louis Delmas is wide open, so Coleman may return to the starting lineup.
