The Commanders will have to wait at least another week to get defensive end Chase Young back.

Young, who had been listed as questionable for today’s game against the Falcons, was officially ruled out on Sunday morning.

“We have downgraded DE Chase Young (knee/illness) to out for today’s game,” the Commanders said in a brief announcement.

The nature of Young’s illness is unknown, but his knee injury remains a concern. He suffered a torn ACL more than a year ago and still hasn’t played since.

The Commanders face the Giants next week and have their bye after that. It remains unclear when Young will get on the field.

  1. Not exactly a hot take, but maybe he’ll play in one of the Giants games, before or after the bye. Or not. Maybe he’s secretly out for the season. Whatever. Defense is playing good enough without him currently, so whatever. But yes, let’s obsess about his status.

  2. Crazy how some dudes bounce back effortlessly from injuries and some simply don’t. Healing is an involuntary skill.

  3. No need to rush his return. A re-injury would be devastating to the 50/50 odds of him returning to the player he was.

  4. Let’s be honest… He isn’t the next big thing that people thought he’d be. He had a whopping 1.5 sacks when he got hurt late in the season last year. Washington D playing fine without him.
