Commanders EDGE Chase Young (ACL recovery) is inactive for today's game against the Falcons. We'll see if Young is ready for Week 13. A bye the following week might factor into whether he plays.

Commanders EDGE Chase Young is not expected to play Sunday against the Falcons, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. He's officially questionable and will participate in warmups. We'll need to see Young in game action before considering him for IDP lineups.

3:31pm EST 11/21/22

The Commanders have activated EDGE Chase Young from IR, HC Ron Rivera said Monday. That points to Young seeing his 1st game action in Week 12 since suffering his ACL tear last November. We'll see if the team reveals anything further about his role. We certainly wouldn't bet on an immediate return to his pre-injury playing-time level, though.

The Commanders are not returning EDGE Chase Young (ACL recovery) to the active roster ahead of Sunday's game against the Texans. HC Ron Rivera said Friday that they'll "most certainly" activate Young by Wednesday, according to ESPN's John Keim. We're still not betting on Young making a significant IDP impact this season.

The Commanders are expected to activate EDGE Chase Young from the PUP list ahead of Sunday's games against the Texans, according to multiple reports. We'd still bet on Washington bringing him along slowly in game action. Young has been out since mid-November last season with an ACL tear plus other damage. The team has been cautious with him to this point. We'll see what his playing time looks like before considering Young for IDP lineup use.

Commanders DE Chase Young is expected to join team drills in Wednesday's practice, HC Ron Rivera told reporters Monday. Young is still working back from last season's ACL tear (plus other damage). The team has opened the 21-day window for deciding whether to return him to the active roster, and it sounds like he's expected to be ready for game action soon. It's tough to know how long it will take Young to get back to normal playing time, and how he'll perform. He's stashable in deeper IDP leagues, but don't overrate his fantasy football outlook.

ESPN's John Keim reports that Commanders EDGE Chase Young will see Dr. James Andrews on Sunday. "If all goes well, he'll practice next week and then they can determine if he'll return vs. Indy or the following week," Keim adds. It's obviously positive that Young might get back onto the field soon. It's also worth remembering that Washington has played it cautious through nearly half of this season with a 23-year-old cornerstone player who went down in Week 10 of last year. Whenever Young does return to game action, we'll bet on controlled early workloads. It's possible he gets back near full strength over the 2nd half of this year. It's also possible, however, that we get no more than a limited version of Young this season. His talent is worth stashing in deeper IDP leagues, but don't consider Young a "must" add across IDP formats. Keep in mind that Young ranked outside the top 50 fantasy D-linemen in points per game last year. He ranked just 40th in Pro Football Focus pass-rushing grade among edge players with 200+ snaps.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Commanders DE Chase Young will have his repaired knee re-evaluated by Dr. James Andrews "soon" and is expected to be cleared to return from the PUP "by mid-season." We'll see as the time draws closer just how soon that actually is. It's still tough to expect a big IDP impact from Young this season, but he'll be worth rostering in most formats to see what's there.

Washington has moved DE Chase Young to the Reserve/PUP list, knocking him out for at least the 1st 4 games of the regular season. It's not a surprising development, given that he has yet to get back to the practice field and that HC Ron Rivera had intimated the PUP was a possibility. You should not have Young prominent in the 2022 plans for your IDP fantasy football league. We'll see if he has a shot at getting back to full strength later this season. James Smith-Williams looks poised to start in Young's place, opposite Montez Sweat.

Commanders HC Ron Rivera told reporters Friday that DE Chase Young will "probably miss a little bit of time" at the beginning of the regular season, according to the Washington Times. Rivera reportedly talked about the PUP list initially before backtracking on that. It's clear that Young will at least miss Week 1, and we'd bet that the PUP remains a possibility. That would sideline the DE for at least the 1st 4 games. Young is still working back from a November ACL tear that included patellar damage.

Commanders DE Chase Young remains on the PUP list, and HC Ron Rivera doesn't make it sound like he expects the player back soon. “He’s been working hard,” Rivera said Tuesday, according to Ben Standig of The Athletic. “His rehab’s been going well from what we’ve seen and what we understand. But you never really know until you get to get your hands back on him. But Chase Young is probably the one that’s going to take the most time. It was serious, obviously, and any time you’re talking about an ACL, it’s just down the line. We’ll have to wait and see on that one.” In addition to tearing his right ACL, Young also damaged the patella in that knee. Young is expected to take longer to return than teammate TE Logan Thomas, who suffered his ACL tear in December. "Different type of injury," Rivera said, in comparing the 2. Young will make for a high-risk IDP selection at least until he's back on the field. At this point, he's far from a lock to be ready for the regular-season opener. We have moved him further down our 2022 IDP rankings.

5:20pm EDT 7/27/22

Commanders DE Chase Young opened training camp on the physically unable to perform list. Young is still working back from the ACL tear that ended his 2021 season. He told reporters Tuesday, however, that "everything is going as planned," according to the team website. We'd bet on Young being ready for the regular season.

Washington HC Ron Rivera confirmed to reporters Monday that DE Chase Young tore his right ACL in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers. That will end Young's season. We'll see how it affects his prep for the 2022 season. With DE Montez Sweat also out for at least another 2 games with his broken jaw, James Smith-Williams and Casey Toohill look like the top 2 DEs for Washington.

Washington DE Chase Young left Sunday's game against the Buccaneers with a knee injury and was quickly ruled out. He left the field on a cart, so it doesn't look good for him beyond this week. We'll watch or an official diagnosis.

Update: Multiple reports say Washington fears a torn right ACL.

Washington DE Chase Young (groin) is active for today's game against the Rams. It's tough to know just how close he is to full health, but Young carries plenty of upside to make him an IDP option whenever healthy.

Washington expects DE Chase Young to play today against the Rams, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Young missed Week 4 with a groin injury and enters today questionable. He got in a full Friday practice, though, and should be available for IDP lineups. We'll confirm his status when inactives are released.

Washington DE Chase Young (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams. Young managed a full practice Friday for the 1st time since suffering the injury. That followed a limited Thursday workout after he sat out Wednesday. Young seems to be trending toward playing Sunday, but we'll check his status Sunday morning. He'd obviously carry risk even if active but would also present fantasy upside. Young's return would also help the upside of the Washington defense as a cheap DFS option.

Washington expects DE Chase Young to miss Sunday's game against the Ravens, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Beyond that, the rookie is "week-to-week" with the groin strain he suffered Sunday against Cleveland. We'll see about Young's availability for Week 5. Keep him on IDP rosters for now if you can.

Washington DE Chase Young left in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's loss to Cleveland with a groin injury and did not return. DE Ryan Kerrigan doubled his playing time vs. the 1st 2 games in Young's absence and would be in IDP lineup contention if Young misses further time. DT Matt Ioannidis also left in the 1st half with an arm injury. Both will get further evaluation Monday, according to ESPN's John Keim.
