Young, the 2020 Defensive Rookie of the Year, is working back from surgery to repair a torn ACL in his right knee. That surgery involved grafting part of his left patellar tendon to fix the tear.
Coach Ron Rivera already ruled out Washington’s top pass-rusher for the season opener against Jacksonville and indicated Young could start the season on the PUP list. The first game Young is eligible to play is Oct. 9 against Tennessee.
The team and Young have refused to set a timeframe on his return from what Rivera has repeatedly called a significant injury. He injured the knee Nov. 14 against Tampa Bay.
Young had 26 combined tackles (three for a loss) in nine games last season. He also forced two fumbles, knocked away two passes, and had 1.5 sacks.
