Washington’s Young out, McLaurin questionable vs. Ravens
Washington Football Team rookie defensive end Chase Young has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.
Coach Ron Rivera said that Young is “day-to-day” with the groin injury he sustained during last Sunday’s 34-20 loss to Cleveland.
Young, the second overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft out of Ohio State, has collected eight tackles and 2.5 sacks in three games for Washington.
Wide receiver Terry McLaurin is listed as questionable for the contest versus Baltimore (2-1) after sitting out practice on Friday. He injured his thigh during the previous day’s practice.
McLaurin, 25, leads the team in receptions (16) and receiving yards (269). He also has a touchdown catch for Washington (1-2), which will look to snap a two-game skid on Sunday.
Should McLaurin sit out on Sunday, Washington could look to tight end Logan Thomas (12 catches, 94 yards, one touchdown) or Dontrelle Inman (seven receptions, 76 yards, two scores) to aid its passing game.
Also on Friday, Washington placed running back Bryce Love on injured reserve. Love has experienced swelling in his knee as he works to return since tearing his ACL in his final collegiate game in December 2018.
“It’s probably from overuse,” Rivera said. “He’s got some issues with (his knee), so we decided to IR him and put him down so he can rest it and get that swelling down.”
Rivera added that he hopes Love will only be out 3-4 weeks (new injured reserve rules allow players to come off the list after three weeks) and, when asked whether the injury was considered season-ending, said, “No. Not at all.”
