WR Titus Young still not at practice for Lions

The Lions (4-7) have lost three straight. They moved the ball well at times without Young last week — rookie Ryan Broyles had six catches for 126 yards, giving Detroit another dangerous threat alongside Calvin Johnson. Matthew Stafford threw for 441 yards.

Broyles said he's been in touch with Young recently but didn't want to comment further on his teammate's situation.

"We've got the tools," Broyles said. "We've got the quarterback and we've got the system to make plays, and we've just got to make one more."

Schwartz, meanwhile, is still taking heat for throwing a challenge flag after a long Houston touchdown run. The play was subject to an automatic review, but because Schwartz threw his flag, he was hit with a 15-yard penalty and the review was negated — giving the Texans a TD that replays showed shouldn't have counted.

"I wish I had taken a shoe off and thrown it like that guy did to President Bush that one time," Schwartz joked. "Or if I had a hat, if I wore a hat I could have thrown that ... or thrown the headset down. I mean, I've smashed headsets before — that would have been a much better solution there."
