Young (triceps) notched two sacks in four games before being placed on injured reserve in Week 5.
Young is signed with the Bears through 2018, and in his four years with the team he's recorded 26 sacks in 50 games. Should he make a healthy return to the lineup, he'll be a solid IDP option, based on his ability to pile up sacks.

Young reportedly has a torn triceps that will require surgery, which would make him the third Bears defender to be lost for the season.

Young (triceps) did not practice Saturday and is considered to be doubtful for Monday's divisional showdown with Minnesota, Co reports.
If Young can't play, the Chicago linebacking corps might be without three of their starting four linebackers. In such case, Phernell McPhee would be the likely replacement for Young.
