Young (knee) performed well during team minicamp last week, Mike Preston of The Baltimore Sun reports. "For the first time, it looked like, to me, he really got past the trepidation coming back off the knee [injury] - if that's the right word," head coach John Harbaugh said of a recent practice. "I thought today he let it cut loose a little bit more and looked really good."
Young is close to 100 percent healthy after tearing his ACL a little over a year ago. The cornerback went through drills last week against wideouts and it appears his burst and acceleration have returned, as well as his skills in press coverage. A healthy Young will be a huge boost to the Ravens' secondary, as he'll compete for the starting nickel back role.
Young (knee) will be ready for the start of OTAs, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.
This is quietly an excellent development for Baltimore's secondary depth with Young making a speedy recovery from a torn ACL that cost him the entirety of the 2017 season. Prior to his injury, Young was poised to be the Ravens' starting nickel corner. His injury allowed Maurice Canady to take a step forward in his development, picking up significant playing time down the stretch. Young will have his work cut out for him in terms of reclaiming the starter's status he carried coming into 2017, but if he shows he hasn't lost a step, he very well could find himself as a primary nickel option in 2018.
