Update on Chase Young's status following injury on Sunday
It turns out that the groin injury that Washington defensive end Chase Young sustained in last week’s game against the Cleveland Browns may be slightly more serious than previously thought.
Wednesday, NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reported that Young sustained a “moderate groin strain” on Sunday and will likely miss this week’s game against the Baltimore Ravens. It was reported earlier in the week that the injury was not expected to be serious.
Young is listed as week-to-week for the time being.
Washington Football Team pass-rusher Chase Young suffered a moderate groin strain on Sunday and is expected to be out vs. the #Ravens, sources say. Young, the No. 2 pick who already has 2.5 sacks, is considered week-to-week.
