According to the Detroit Lions official website, Young apologized to the team, and released a statement through the Lions prior to practice.
"My recent actions have not always been up to the standards the Lions expect or the standards that I expect from myself. I am truly sorry for those times when I didn't meet those standards. My absence from the practice facility and the OTAs last week was necessary for both myself and the team. The time away from the team afforded me the opportunity to reflect and come to the realization that by putting those incidents behind me I will be able to focus on becoming the best teammate and player that I can be."
Young assumed his role with the first-teamers during Tuesday's practice, and also returned punts. The former Bronco wide receiver caught 48 balls for 607 yards, and six touchdowns as a rookie in 2011.
