On Sunday, the Washington Football Team believed that in a 29-19 win over Tampa Bay Buccaneers, defensive end Chase Young suffered a torn ACL in his knee.
Chase Young will undergo more inspections in the future. He was injured with 7:49 left in the second quarter of the game. After that, he did not choose to take the medical car and left with the help of teammate Brandon Scherff.
This is the second starting defensive end lost by the Washington Football Team. Montez Sweat had a jaw fracture in the 10.31 game against Denver Broncos and will be absent for 4-6 weeks.
Chase Young’s performance this season did not meet expectations, and he has only completed 1.5 sacks. This is in contrast to the performance of 7.5 sacks last season and was elected the defensive rookie of the year. Washington Football Team coach Ron Rivera also said that Chase Young needs more discipline as a passer, both technique and method.
