Raiders' Sam Young: Ready to suit up in Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (knee) will not carry an injury designation into the team's Week 12 matchup against the Falcons, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Young has battled a knee injury for much of the past month and missed the Raiders' Week 12 matchup against the Chiefs. His return will bolster the pass protection for Derek Carr.

Raiders' Sam Young: Won't face Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (knee) is inactive for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs.

The 11-year veteran's absence is a notable blow for the Raiders, given that he normally starts at right tackle. His absence could allow Brandon Parker to slot into the starting lineup.

Raiders' Sam Young: Available Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (knee) will be available for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Young was limited at practice all week, but the Raiders were presumably just erring on the side of caution. The 11-year veteran will take on his usual responsibilities at right tackle assuming he avoids any setbacks.

Raiders' Sam Young: Knee issue pops up again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's matchup against the Browns.

The 11-year veteran started Week 7 against the Buccaneers with Trent Brown residing on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but he was forced to an early exit because of an in-game injury. With Brown dealing with a non-COVID illness, Young again earned the start for Week 8's matchup against Cleveland after being cleared to play Sunday morning, but he's been forced out midgame for a second consecutive week.

Raiders' Sam Young: Cleared for Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (knee) will play in Sunday's game versus the Browns.

Young started last week's loss to the Buccaneers because Trent Brown was on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but Young ended up leaving early with a knee injury. He logged limited practices all week and has been cleared to play, but Brown has also been activated and could suit up Sunday depending on his conditioning. Whoever starts will have a tough matchup with Browns' defensive end Myles Garrett on the other side.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was forced out of Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers with a knee injury.

Raiders' Sam Young: Expected starter Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (groin) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game versus the Bills, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.

Young will return to the lineup after missing the last two games. Starting left tackle Trent Brown (calf) is considered doubtful, so Young is expected to handle a starting role Sunday.

Raiders' Sam Young: Won't suit up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (groin) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Young was limited in practice all week before coming into Sunday's game questionable. Now that Young officially has been ruled out, Brandon Parker will be the only healthy depth tackle suiting up for Week 3.

Raiders' Sam Young: Considered questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt with the Patriots.

No surprise here, as Young was limited as questionable all week. His status will presumably be determined by how he is feeling closer to kickoff. He suffered the injury in Week 1 and is now in danger of missing his second straight contest.

Raiders' Sam Young: Sitting out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (groin) is inactive for Monday's game versus the Saints.

With Trent Brown (calf) also sitting out, either Denzelle Good or Brandon Parker is expected to start at right tackle Monday.

Raiders' Sam Young: Doubtful for MNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (groin) is considered doubtful for Monday's game versus the Saints, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Starting RT Trent Brown (calf) is also doubtful, so if the two are indeed out, either Denzelle Good or Brandon Parker is expected to start Monday's game.

Raiders' Sam Young: Exits with groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young suffered a groin injury during the team's Week 1 contest against the Panthers, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.

Young was forced into action after Trent Brown (calf) was ruled out in the midst of the matchup. His absence left the team very thin along the offensive line, which could be a problem as the team heads into a Week 2 against the Saints.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Raiders' Sam Young: Joining Vegas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young signed a contract with the Raiders on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Young joined the 49ers in mid-September and appeared in four games before being let go in November. The 32-year-old has 21 career starts over 11 seasons, but he's likely to compete for a depth role with the Raiders.

Sam Young: Released by 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was cut by the 49ers on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

Young has spent time in Miami, Dallas, Jacksonville and Buffalo during his nine-year career, but San Francisco has decided to go in a different direction. There are plenty of NFL teams with offensive line depth issues, so it would not be surprising to see Young given an opportunity elsewhere.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young signed a contract with the 49ers on Tuesday.

Sam Young: Cut by Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was released by the Dolphins on Saturday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Young struggled while filling in at right tackle in last week's game, so much so that the Dolphins have opted to go in another direction. Zach Sterup will become the top backup tackle for Miami going forward.

Dolphins' Sam Young: Not going anywhere
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young will re-sign with the Dolphins on a one-year contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Young's continued availability bodes well for Miami skill players as he serves as a capable backup at tackle in case anything happens to 2016 first-rounder Laremy Tunsil or 2014 first-rounder Ja'Wuan James.
