Pass rusher Chase Young has been added to the 53-man roster by the Washington Commanders, according to head coach Ron Rivera’s announcement on Monday. Young has been recovering from an ACL tear sustained on November 14, 2021, during the previous season. This indicates that he was gone for little over a year, which is a considerable amount of time for a professional football player.
As soon as the club opened up his three-week window earlier this month, the addition to the active roster was anticipated. Young may have been inactive until Tuesday or the season could have ended without him. The Commanders have been careful with their top edge rusher; in order for him to play this week, he probably has to practice. The former NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year would energize Washington’s defense going into the second half of the season. The Commanders will meet the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12 and are now 6-5, almost missing the playoffs.
