Washington’s still awaiting word on rookie defensive end Chase Young, but they’ve gotten bad news on another lineman.

Via Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, defensive tackle Matt Ioannidis has a torn biceps and is out for the rest of the season.

The 2016 fifth-rounder has become a valuable part of a defensive front rotation that is heavily populated by first-rounders, with 34 starts in his career.

Young left yesterday’s game with a groin injury, and there hasn’t been much of an update on the second overall pick.
