Washington defensive end Chase Young is considered a longshot to make his season debut Sunday against the Giants, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports.

Young earned a questionable designation for the game as he works his way back from a torn ACL more than a year ago.

The Commanders are expected to work him out before pregame warmups to see where he is.

Young returned to practice Nov. 2, his first practice since injuring his knee Nov. 14, 2021, in a game against the Buccaneers. His 21-day window to return to the active roster was about to expire when the Commanders activated Young back to the 53-player roster.

But it looks like Young will need more time to return to game action.

He required a graft from the tendon in his left knee to repair his right knee, which made his recovery longer.

  1. So he’s been back since November 2nd and can’t play still. Sit out til next year young man. You have no WB this year or next year, and your defense is the only saving grace. The offense can’t put up enough points to beat the big guns.

  2. graft from the tendon in his left knee to repair his right knee,

    I am a highly regarded internet doctor. He received a graft from the tendon in his left knee to repair his right knee. My diagnosis is,
    HE’S DONE!

  3. Its a shame about that injury.
    I hope he fully recovers, but it sounds like he won’t be fully recovered until mid next season, having missed 2 years.
