The Commanders will continue to wait to bring Chase Young back.

Via Adam Schefter of ESPN, Washington won’t activate the 2020 NFL defensive rookie of the year in advance of Sunday’s game at Houston.

Young suffered a torn ACL last November. He has not played since then.

As noted by Schefter, the Commanders have until Wednesday to activate Young or reverting him to the physically unable to perform list for the rest of the season. Unless they believe he won’t be ready at any point this year, they’re likely to activate him — even if he’s still not ready to play.

  1. They’ll be a much better team when he gets on the field. It’s like Watt in Pittsburgh, or Bosa in San Francisco. These elite edge rushers really are difference makers.

  2. Chase Young was an impact player that changed the field during his rookie year. Then the film came out and he was basically non existent his second year. The Commander’s D is probably a top ten in the league. Chase Young would be a rotational player on a snap count at best.

    The real question is will Washington pick up the 5th year option on Chase Young?
