Young was waived by the Rams on Monday, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Young has been let go to make room for Ogbonnia Okoronkwo on the 53-man roster. If the rookie sixth-round pick goes unclaimed on waivers, he'll be a candidate to sign with the Rams' practice squad.
Young (back) was a full go at Thursday's practice, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN reports.
Young was inactive for Week 8 against the Packers with a back injury but is trending towards playing against the Saints on Sunday. The Rams acquired pass-rusher Dante Fowler from the Jaguars earlier this week, so it will be interesting to see how Young's role is affected going forward.
Young was a spectator for the Rams' final two practices of the week due to the back injury, prompting the team to hold him out Sunday. The rookie sixth-round pick has appeared in just two games this season, logging a combined total of 11 snaps.
Young (back) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Packers, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
Young was a surprise addition to Los Angeles' injury report this week and was held out of the team's final two practices. The depth linebacker appears to be trending towards a Week 8 absence.
