Injury update on Washington rookie Chase Young
An injury sustained by Washington Football Team rookie Chase Young is not expected to be serious, according to a report from NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.
Young, who was playing in his third NFL game on Sunday, left the contest and headed back to the locker room after sustaining an injury. He was ruled out for the rest of the contest after it was reported that the rookie defensive end endured a groin injury.
“Washington appears to have dodged a bullet, as pass-rusher Chase Young’s groin injury is not believed to be serious,” Rapoport reported, per 247Sports. “He’ll have tests [Monday] to be sure, as the Ravens loom next week.”
In his first two games with Washington, Young has collected 8 tackles, 2.5 sacks and forced a fumble. He was the No. 2 selection in the 2020 NFL Draft, taken after former teammate and quarterback Joe Burrow.
Washington dropped to 1-2 on Sunday after falling 34-20 to the Cleveland Browns.
