Football Team's Chase Young: All set for Year 2 breakout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was impressive at June minicamp and appears ready to take a step forward in his second pro season, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

The second overall pick from last year's draft enjoyed a stellar rookie campaign, finishing the regular season with 44 tackles, 7.5 sacks, four forced fumble, three fumble recoveries and a touchdown in 15 games. Young didn't participate in the voluntary portion of Washington's offseason program, but his return for June minicamp proves he's healthy and in good shape. He may soon emerge as an annual threat to lead the NFL in sacks.

Football Team's Chase Young: Records 7.5 sacks as a rookie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (ankle), who logged three tackles in Washington's playoff loss to the Buccaneers on Saturday, finished the 2020 regular season with 44 tackles, 7.5 sacks and four forced fumbles.

Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Young was limited late in Saturday's game with what's being described as a mild ankle sprain. It's the sort of injury that would have been an issue for the pass rusher had Washington advanced, but the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft will now have the entire offseason to heal up and prepare for his second year as a pro. Looking ahead to next season, Young, who turns 22 in April, will continue to be a key pass-rushing cog on his team's stout front four while working in a starting defensive end role.

Football Team's Chase Young: Comes up with strip-sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young had four tackles (three solo), a sack, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery in Sunday's 20-13 loss to Carolina.

Young recovered his own strip-sack early in the third quarter, keeping Washington in the game after the Panthers had moved the ball down to the red zone with a 20-3 lead. It took a while for any rally to get going, but Young and the rest of the defense certainly did their part to give the offense a shot at a comeback. While his 6.5 sacks through 14 games might seem slightly disappointing for a No. 2 overall pick, Young has made some huge plays in December, including a 47-yard fumble return for touchdown in the Week 14 win over San Francisco. He should have plenty of chances to impact the game in Week 17, as Eagles QB Jalen Hurts has attempted 30, 44 and 39 passes in his three starts, giving up nine sacks and six fumbles (two lost).

Football Team's Chase Young: Scores first NFL touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young had six tackles (two solo), two pass defenses, a sack, a forced fumble and a fumble recovered for a touchdown in Sunday's 23-15 win over the 49ers.

Young dominated the first half, starting with a sack in the first quarter. He then forced a fumble in the second quarter, and DL Daron Payne scooped it up for Washington. A few minutes later, the two players switched roles, with Payne knocking the ball loose on a sack and Young returning it 47 yards for a touchdown. The rookie also had a hand in some key tackles and pass breakups late in the game, so it's probably safe to call this his best work yet as a pro. Now up to 5.5 sacks through 12 games, Young has a good chance to add to his total in Week 15, as Seattle's Russell Wilson has taken the second-most sacks (40) of any QB this year.

Football Team's Chase Young: Notches sack against G-Men
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young collected one tackle during Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Giants, that being a sack of Daniel Jones.

Even on an afternoon in which the No. 2 overall draft choice yielded just one total tackle, he still somehow found a way to get to the quarterback, taking down Jones for a second-quarter sack. Young had entered Week 9 amidst a four-game sackless streak, though a groin injury suffered Week 3 against Cleveland may have contributed to the drought. Now having returned to the sack column, Young focuses his attention on a Week 10 road trip to Detroit.

Football Team's Chase Young: Collects six tackles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young finished with six tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 25-3 victory over Dallas.

Young ended the contest tied for the team lead with six tackles, the best performance of his young career. The defensive end was on the field for 82 percent of Washington's defensive snaps.

Football Team's Chase Young: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (groin) was a full participant during Thursday's practice, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Young has managed through the groin injury ever since he suffered the issue in Week 3 against Cleveland, so the fact that he's been cleared this early in the week is a positive sign. The rookie played in 92 percent of defensive snaps last week, so expect a similar workload for Young now that he's been cleared for Sunday's game against Dallas.

Football Team's Chase Young: Groin remains bothersome
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (groin) was limited in practice Wednesday, John Keim of ESPN NFL Nation reports.

Young missed Week 4 with a groin injury, and the rookie second-overall pick evidently still isn't fully over that injury. He played 92 percent of Washington's defensive snaps last week, so barring a setback, Young should be out there Sunday against Dallas.

Football Team's Chase Young: Returns Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (groin) is listed as active Sunday against the Rams.

After a one-game absence due to a moderate groin strain, Young is back in action after going through a DNP/LP/FP practice regimen this week. Through his first 10 quarters as a pro, the 2020 first-round selection has eight tackles and 2.5 sacks to his credit.

Football Team's Chase Young: Likely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (groin) is expected to suit up for Sunday's game against the Rams, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

In Week 3, Young was knocked from the contest with what eventually was diagnosed as a moderate groin strain. After sitting out last Sunday, he followed a DNP/LP/FP practice regimen in advance of this Sunday. Notably, Friday's full practice likely swayed Washington to activate the 2020 first-round pick. Assuming he's active, Young will look to add to the 2.5 sacks that he logged in roughly the first 10 quarters of the season.

Football Team's Chase Young: Questionable to face Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Young missed Week 4 and didn't practice Wednesday, but his return to limited participation Thursday gives him a shot to suit up in Week 5. The No. 2 overall pick has lived up to expectations when healthy, recording 2.5 sacks on 121 defensive snaps. Young could be headed for a game-time decision ahead of a 1 p.m. ET kickoff Sunday, with Ryan Kerrigan likely filling in as a starter if the rookie isn't able to play. Ryan Anderson also got extra snaps with Young out of the lineup last week.

Football Team's Chase Young: Puts in limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (groin) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Young wasn't able to practice Wednesday and missed Week 4 due to his groin injury, so to see him back on the field is a notable step in the right direction. Still, Washington may hold out to see the rookie second overall pick go through full practice reps before clearing him for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Football Team's Chase Young: Remains sidelined by groin
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (groin) didn't practice Wednesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Young missed last week's loss to Baltimore with the groin injury he suffered in Week 3, and he'll need to ramp up his practice participation in a hurry to suit up Sunday against the Rams. The rookie second overall pick has seen his momentum grind to a halt due to this injury after racking up 2.5 sacks in his first two games.

Football Team's Chase Young: Ruled out for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (groin) won't play in Sunday's game against the Ravens, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports.

Coach Ron Rivera said the team is taking a "day-by-day" approach with Young, but it isn't a great sign that the rookie was unable to practice in any capacity this week. With DT Matthew Ioannidis (torn biceps) also suffering an injury last week and now expected to miss the rest of the season, Washington's impressive D-line has taken a major hit. It does sound like Young is expected back at some point in October, if not for Week 5 against the Rams.

Football Team's Chase Young: Sidelined at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (groin) is not practicing Thursday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Young looks to be trending in the wrong direction for Sunday's contest against the Ravens due to a moderate groin strain sustained Week 3. If the rookie first-round pick is indeed forced to miss Week 4, Ryan Kerrigan would be the favorite to receive increased defensive snaps.

Football Team's Chase Young: Likely to sit Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was diagnosed Wednesday with a moderate groin strain and is expected to be sidelined for Washington's Week 4 game versus Baltimore, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Before tweaking his groin in Washington's Week 3 loss to Cleveland, the No. 2 overall pick was off to a fast start to his rookie season, totaling eight tackles, 2.5 sacks and one forced fumble. While Young was seemingly fortunate to avoid a Grade 3 groin strain, Washington is labeling him as week-to-week, suggesting that he could miss additional action beyond the Ravens game. Ryan Kerrigan will likely pick up more reps in Young's stead, serving as Washington's main edge rusher opposite Montez Sweat.

Football Team's Chase Young: Will undergo MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (groin) is set to have an MRI on Monday, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

Young relayed via his personal Twitter account Sunday that his injury is "nothing major." Undergoing an MRI doesn't necessarily contradict the rookie, but at the very least, the team is looking to rule out anything serious. The results of his MRI should be available Tuesday at the latest, and either way, his practice status will likely be closely monitored all week leading up to Sunday's matchup versus the Ravens.

Football Team's Chase Young: Injury doesn't look serious
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (groin) appears to have avoided a major injury, Ryan Homler of NCB Sports Washington reports.

Young exited Sunday's loss to the Browns in the second quarter due to a groin injury and didn't return, but he said via his personal Twitter account after the contest that the issue is "nothing major." While an official timetable for the rookie first-round pick's return remains undisclosed, it's at least encouraging to see that he appears to have avoided the worst-case scenario.

September 27, 2020 03:48 PM
Football Team's Chase Young: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (groin) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against Cleveland.

Young needed to be carted off the field in the second quarter due to the injury, so he could be dealing with something serious. With the rookie out, Ryan Kerrigan is in line to see a large uptick in snaps. Expect the team to update Young's status in the coming days.

Football Team's Chase Young: Dominant in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young recorded two tackles, 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Eagles.

All of Washington's starting defensive linemen were first-round picks, and they dominated the Eagles' banged-up offensive front Sunday en route to an upset win. Young lived up to the hype, too, as he had no issue adjusting to the NFL ranks. The second overall pick added two quarterback hits and strip-sacked Carson Wentz in the first half. Look for Young to carry the momentum into another favorable matchup against a sub-par Cardinals offensive line in Week 2.
