We're Black and Blue All Over:

As training camp practices resume Monday morning around the NFC North, it's worth noting that one of the new players who excited many of us this offseason hasn't seen much action to date.

Detroit Lions receiver Titus Young suffered a leg injury in the team's first practice July 29 and hasn't been back on the field since. Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press has the details. Young entered camp with a strong chance to win the Lions' No. 3 receiver's job, and that could still happen once he returns to the field. But to this point, Young hasn't been able to escape the Lions' injury list.
