One of the lingering questions of Washington Commanders‘ camp would be the potential availability of former Defensive Rookie of the Year Chase Young as he recovers from a torn ACL suffered in Week 10 of the 2021 season.
Commanders head coach Ron Rivera addressed the subject on Friday morning.
It was reported in the beginning of June that the 2020 Pro Bowl defensive lineman did not have a timetable for his return from the damage. Prior to the season-ending damage, Young had collected 26 tackles, 4 quarterback hits, two compelled fumbles and 1.5 sacks.
