Bears' Willie Young: Registers sack in Sunday defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young recorded a pair of tackles and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.

Young was able to record his first sack of the season despite Tampa Bay using a run-heavy approach in a blowout win. As a rotational player, he doesn't get enough consistent opportunities to be a strong IDP option.

Bears' Willie Young: Records sack in third preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young recorded a sack and a tackle in Sunday's win over the Titans.

Young was in the right place at the right time, as he earned his sack on a third-down play and had a free run at the quarterback as the offensive tackle was forced to pick between two oncoming pass rushers. Although he doesn't typically put up enough production on a consistent basis, he has upside as a streaming IDP option.

Bears' Willie Young: Expected to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (groin) is expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Cardinals.

Young has had trouble with a strained groin in recent practices, so his availability for Saturday's exhibition suggests he's good to go moving forward. He's expected to slot in as a starting outside linebacker opposite the ascending Leonard Floyd.

Bears' Willie Young: Misses second consecutive practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young missed his second-straight practice with a strained groin, reports Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times.

As long as this doesn't turn into a long-term injury, Young will be counted upon as a rotational player who is excellent at pressuring opposing quarterbacks. He's notched 24 sacks over the past three seasons with the Bears, and especially with Pernell McPhee (knee) struggling with an injury of his own, Young could end up being a sneaky IDP option should McPhee miss a significant number of regular-season games.

Browns' Kenny Britt: Back at practice Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Britt (leg) was seen practicing Saturday after leaving Thursday's practice with cramps, Dan Labbe of Cleveland.com reports.

Britt rode the bike during Friday's practice but returned to full action on Saturday and was able to haul in a few passes. It seems that his cramp issues are behind him, but the Browns may want to continue to monitor him, as he's expected to play a big role in the offense in 2017.
