  • Commanders' Chase Young: Plays only three games in 2022

    Young made only three appearances in 2022 and recorded five tackles and one pass defense on 115 snaps.

    The 2020 No. 1 overall pick made his season debut Dec. 24 after suffering ACL and MCL tears Nov. 14 the year before. Young has only nine career sacks through three pro seasons, with 7.5 of those coming in a debut campaign that also included four forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and a Defensive Rookie of the Year award. With a full offseason to continue strengthening his knee, Young has a chance to emerge as a top edge rusher in 2023, his age-24 campaign.

  • Commanders' Chase Young: Back in full Thursday

    Young (illness) practiced fully Thursday.

    After missing Wednesday's session due to an illness, the 2020 No. 2 overall draft pick returned to Thursday's practice without limitations, ultimately putting him back on track to suit up again New Year's Day versus Cleveland. Young made his campaign debut this past weekend in San Francisco and collected two tackles while playing 58 percent of Washington's defensive snaps, and while it's likely that he'll see an uptick in usage moving forward, he'll presumably be on some sort of limited snap count in Week 17.

  • Commanders' Chase Young: Dealing with illness

    Young didn't practice Wednesday due to an illness.

    Young, who missed the majority of the campaign while rehabbing from last November's surgery to repair the ACL, MCL and patella tendon in his right knee, made his first appearance in over a year during last week's loss to the 49ers, totaling two tackles and one pass breakup across 30 defensive snaps. The positive news is that the superstar pass rusher isn't listed with a knee injury, suggesting he avoided any potential setbacks during his return to action. However, Young is now dealing with an illness that at least temporarily put his status for Sunday's matchup with the Browns in jeopardy.

  • Commanders' Chase Young: Small role expected in debut

    Young (knee) is expected to face an initial limit of 12-to-15 snaps in his season debut Saturday at San Francisco, though head coach Ron Rivera is leaving the door open for the defensive end to play more if he's feeling good during the contest, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Young will be playing his first game in more than 13 months after he suffered a torn ACL and MCL and ruptured patella tendon in his right knee Nov. 14 of last year. Though Young has required slightly longer than anticipated to fully move past the injury, he appears to have had a positive week of practice and will finally be turned loose Saturday. Young will likely be limited to some extent Saturday, but he should be ready to take on a full workload by the time the Commanders host the Cowboys for the regular-season finale Jan. 8.

  • Commanders' Chase Young: Finally ready for 2022 debut

    Washington head coach Ron Rivera said Young (knee) will make his 2022 debut Saturday at San Francisco, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Though Rivera characterized Young as a "full go" for the Week 16 contest, the star defensive end will be on an unspecified pitch count to some degree while he plays in his first game in more than 13 months, per Jhabvala. After tearing the ACL and MCL in his right knee and rupturing his patellar tendon in late November of last year and undergoing surgery, Young was cleared to practice Nov. 2 and was then activated from the PUP list three weeks later. Despite being added back to the 53-man roster, Young proceeded to miss the Commanders' subsequent three games while he continued to slowly ramp up in practice, but he appears to have turned a corner in his recovery from the knee injury this week. His return this weekend in any capacity should provide a nice boost to the Washington pass rush.

  • Commanders' Chase Young: Still limited at practice

    Young (knee) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

    After being listed as limited on Tuesday's estimated injury report, Young mixed into drills in a similar capacity Wednesday, which has been his norm since the Commanders activated him from the reserve/PUP list on Nov. 21. The team has yet to clear him for game action, which has resulted in three consecutive absences since that point. Speaking to the media Wednesday, Young told John Keim of that his recovery from a ruptured patellar tendon has been the main thing that has delayed his season debut, rather than the torn ACL he suffered in November of last year. Young also told Keim that Washington has "a good plan" for him, so he'll continue to follow it until he gains clearance to play, which could happen as soon as Saturday at San Francisco.

  • Commanders' Chase Young: Season debut delayed again

    Young (knee) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Giants.

    The Commanders activated Young from the reserve/PUP list Nov. 21, likely with the hope they'd feel comfortable enough reintroducing him to the defense in short order. However, he's now had three chances to do so as he seeks his first game action since tearing the ACL in his right knee Nov. 22, 2021. Washington is firmly in the playoff chase, but with just three games remaining in the regular season, the team is running out of time to see what Young can offer before the wild-card round kicks off Saturday, Jan. 14. Young's next chance to play will come Saturday in San Francisco.
