Washington DE Chase Young to miss rest of season

Washington Football Team defensive end Chase Young will miss the remainder of the season after sustaining a leg injury in Sunday’s 29-19 victory over Tampa Bay Buccaneers, coach Ron Rivera confirmed.

Rivera initially said Sunday it was “potentially his ACL,” however the coach labeled it a leg injury during his Monday video conference.

Young’s knee appeared to buckle as he was rushing Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady midway into the second quarter of Sunday’s game.

The reigning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year dismissed a cart and elected to limp off the field with the help of teammate Brandon Scherff and trainers. Young returned to the sideline on crutches during the third quarter.

Young, 22, has recorded 26 tackles, two forced fumbles and 1 1/2 sacks in nine games this season. He has 70 tackles, nine sacks and six forced fumbles in 24 games since being selected by Washington with the second overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft.
