Titus Young among 11 Lions sitting out against Browns
Eleven players didn’t dress for the Lions in tonight's preseason opener against the Browns. The only surprise was Titus Young who was out due to the birth of his child.
Out were safety Louis Delmas (knee), defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch (knee), running back Jahvid Best (concussion), running back Mikel Leshoure (hamstring), safety Don Carey (unknown), T Jonathan Scott (knee), defensive tackle Sammie Hill (back), Chris Greenwood (abdomen) and wide receiver Ryan Broyles (knee).
After holding out, Cliff Avril was not ready to return to action after just three practices, none of them in pads.
