The Commanders won without defensive end Chase Young on Monday night, but it looks like he will be back with them as they try for their sixth win of the season.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Young is expected to be activated from the physically unable to perform list before the Commanders travel to Houston to face the Texans. Young has not played since tearing his ACL last November 14.

Young returned to practice a couple of weeks ago and defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio said last week that he was not moving at full speed yet. Head coach Ron Rivera said the team won’t play Young until they believe he’s fully ready to roll.

Activating Young doesn’t guarantee he’ll play, but the team will likely wait until after Week 11 to activate him if he isn’t able to go because the deadline to activate him doesn’t come until next week.

If Young does get the green light to play, he’ll try to recover the kind of production he turned in during his rookie season and set himself up for a second contract in Washington as he enters his third NFL offseason.

  1. We are going to the playoffs. The negatives are turning into a positive state for this team moving forward. Chase Young is a crowd favourite and a leader of this team. I’m very excited for his return.

    Which Chase Young do you get? The DROY 2020 version, or the 2021 version who didnt deserve to start a single game based upon his level of play prior to getting hurt and having surgery?

  3. I do not understand all the hype around chase young and Justin fields…they are not even average players but for some reason sports media shoves them down our throats

    Chase young will not have the option on his rookie contract picked up
