Former Lions receiver Titus Young, whose football career came to a halt amid a mental health breakdown that resulted in multiple arrests, remains in a treatment facility.
“Titus is improving,” lawyer Brian Hurwitz told USA Today. “He’s getting better. We hope to know more about the legal case by June 19. But the most important thing right now is Titus’ health and his continued care. In the meantime, I am continuing to talk to the district attorney’s office and am preparing to either resolve the case or fight it.”
Young faces burglary and assault charges, but his case has been delayed several times while he seeks treatment. June 19 is his next court date.
The 24-year-old Young showed some early in his career with the Lions that he has the talent to play in the NFL. Some day he may get another chance, but for now, the focus of his treatment is getting his life in order.
