Titus Young’s Behavior Caused From Hits To The Head?


Former Detroit Lions wide receiver, Titus Young, has had more than his share of off the field problems. These problems include assault, burglary, and resisting arrest. According to a report by TMZ, there may be an answer to why Young has made the choices that he has in his life.

The celebrity news website says that Young suffers from a traumatic brain injury caused by repeated blows to the head. According to Pete Daniels, the intake coordinator at the Crosby Center in San Diego, doctors are saying that Young’s conditions include hyper-vigilance, mood swings, and emotional instability, among others.

“All of these are results of Young taking hits to the head for a long period of time,” said Daniels, “without a doubt.”

Daniels also says that Young has been feeling better about himself and that the treatment being offered to him has been making a difference. At this time it is expected that Young will remain at the facility for another 6 weeks. That decision though will be left up to the judge who could chose to put Young back in jail instead.

“He’s trusting us and he’s allowing a family member to stay with him to provide support,” said Daniels.

No matter how you may feel about Young, we can only hope the 25-year old gets the help that he needs so that he can go on and become a productive member of society.

While with the Lions, Young played in a total of 26 games over only 2 seasons. During that time he caught 81 balls for 990 yards and 10 touchdowns.

It is truly sad to see such a talent wasted, especially when it comes to mental issues. Here is hoping for the best for the former Lions player.
