  NFL | Police and courts: Titus Young legal update    Tue Jul 22, 09:47 PM

Updating a previous story, free-agent WR Titus Young (Lions) was charged with felony battery with serious bodily injury from an alleged July 8 incident inside a Los Angeles-area hospital. The charges stemmed from Young reportedly punching his then-attorney Brian Hurwitz, 34, several times in the face, rendering him unconscious. The police report obtained by the Free Press stated Hurwitz complained of jaw and forehead pain, as well as suffering what he believed to have been a broken nose. According to the report, Young reacted to Hurwitz informing him that he wouldn't be released from the medical facility. The former NFL wide receiver had to be subdued with tranquilizers administered by hospital employees. In total, Young now faces 16 criminal charges in two Southern California counties.

  NFL | Titus Young no-shows again    Tue Jul 2, 06:06 PM

Free-agent WR Titus Young (Rams) didn't show up for his second straight court appearance but was given an excused absence from a judge in Newport Beach, Calif. Young's lawyer, Altus W. Hudson II, says that Young hasn't appeared for his hearings in the 11-count criminal case against him because he's still undergoing treatment for concussions related to his NFL days.

Footballguys view: Young's NFL career is likely over, but the evidence that the defense eventually presents about how his head injuries might have contributed to his crimes will be watched closely by the NFL and thousands of players that are suing the league for allegedly hiding the known risks of concussions and rushing them back onto the field.
