  • Commanders' Chase Young: Ruled out for season opener

    Coach Ron Rivera relayed that Young (knee) won't play in Week 1 against the Jaguars, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

    Young is recovering from a mid-November ACL tear, and it sounds like the defensive end still has many hurdles left to clear in his recovery considering his coach has already ruled Young out more than a month before the season. Per Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post, Rivera added that Young will "probably" start the regular season on the PUP list. If Young isn't removed from the PUP list prior to the regular season, he will miss a minimum of four games.

  • Commanders' Chase Young: Could miss most of camp

    Coach Ron Rivera expects Young (knee) to miss more practice time than Washington's other players on the active/PUP list, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    While this isn't the best sign, it doesn't mean Young can't be ready in time for Week 1. The second overall pick in the 2020 draft is finishing up his rehab from the ACL tear he suffered in mid-November.

  • Commanders' Chase Young: Placed on PUP

    Young (knee) is on the PUP list for the start of training camp, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    The No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft suffered an ACL tear in mid-November of a disappointing second season. He still has a shot to be ready for Week 1, though this isn't the best start. Young was named Defensive Rookie of the Year after his initial season, leading one of the best defenses in the league. Washington slipped to a bottom-five unit last year, struggling even before Young tore his knee.

  • Commanders' Chase Young: Likely starting camp on PUP list

    Commanders head coach Ron Rivera said Wednesday that Young (knee) will "more than likely" begin training camp on the PUP list, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

    The 2020 first-round pick suffered a right ACL tear during Week 10 last year, and by all accounts remains on track in his rehab. There was initial optimism that he'd possibly be available for Week 1, but it also appears Washington will be cautious with its star defender in an effort to avoid any potential setbacks this offseason. Young has nine career sacks across 24 appearances, and when healthy, he and fellow first-round pick Montez Sweat form one of best passing rushing duos in the NFL.

  • Commanders' Chase Young: On field for 11-on-11 work

    Young (knee) was a participant in 11-on-11 drills during Wednesday's OTA practice, Pete Hailey of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    The defensive end was spotted without a brace protecting his surgically repaired knee during his time on the field. His ability to participate in the full portion of practice is a big milestone in his recovery, but it's unclear if Young will be ready to go for the start of the 2022 campaign.

  • Commanders' Chase Young: Not practicing yet

    Young (knee) was spotted without a knee brace Wednesday during the Commanders' OTA session, but he didn't participate in on-field drills, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

    Per Pete Hailey of NBC Sports Washington, Young made his way onto the practice field during 11-on-11 drills after shedding his knee brace, but he still hasn't been cleared to actually handle team reps. The 2020 first-round pick is working his way back from a torn right ACL suffered Week 10, and by all accounts he remains on track in his rehab. Sam Fortier of The Washington Post relays that head coach Ron Rivera declined to offer a specific timetable for Young's return to practice, but there's some reason to be optimistic about the pass rusher's chances of taking the field Week 1.

  • Commanders' Chase Young: Shows up for OTAs

    Young (knee) is present for Washington's second session of OTAs on Tuesday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

    Young is rehabbing his torn right ACL with the Commanders, though he won't return to on-field work until a later date. Though the 2020 first-round pick doesn't yet have a clear timetable to resume practicing, his recovery is by all accounts continuing on schedule.

  • Commanders' Chase Young: Away from team during OTAs

    Young (knee) is rehabbing away from the team during OTAs, Grant Paulsen of The Athletic reports.

    Young suffered a torn ACL in Week 10 against the Buccaneers and underwent surgery at the end of November. The 2020 second overall pick has being progressing well throughout his rehab during the offseason, but he still doesn't have a return timetable for on-field activities.
