Young (hamstring) reached an injury settlement with Arizona and was waived Thursday, per NFL Communications.
Young was placed on injured reserve last week after clearing waivers. Now that he's been waived with a settlement, he's free to play in 2018, assuming he is claimed or signs with another team as a free agent and is able to make a roster. He'll be competing for a depth secondary and special teams role.
Young (hamstring) has been moved to injured reserve, per NFL Communications.
Young was waived by the Cardinals earlier Wednesday but cleared quickly, and the team reverted him to injured reserve. Assuming he doesn't wind up with an injury settlement and isn't designated to return later in the season, Young will aim to return in 2018.
Young sustained a hamstring injury one week ago and has yet to show any rehab progress. Perhaps the slowed development prompted to Cardinals to look for a temporary replacement, but either way Young's brief tenure in Arizona appears to be over.
Young will have a couple days to heal up before the Cardinals open their preseason against the Chargers on Saturday. After suffering an injury in the preseason last year and being eventually waived by the Redskins with an injury settlement, Young, who appeared in six games with the Panthers in 2016, will need to make an impression during training camp to hang on to a 53-man spot.
