Update: Torn ACL is the initial diagnosis
The initial fear for Washington DE Chase Young is a torn ACL, source said. The team is awaiting a full battery of tests, but if the diagnosis is confirmed, that would, of course, knock him out for the season.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 14, 2021
Washington started the game off by intercepting Tom Brady twice in the first quarter, and going up 13-0 over the Buccaneers. That good start was quickly tainted by injuries to two of Washington’s most important players. Terry McLaurin went down first with a shoulder/collarbone injury. He was listed as questionable to return, but was back on the field quickly after. That’s the good news.

Chase Young’s injury didn’t look good from the moment it was shown on tv. He planted his right foot and quickly went down. He was rolling in serious pain, and the team brought the cart out for him. He did waive the cart off, being helped by Brandon Scherff at first, then team trainers, as he left the field. He was quickly ruled out of the game with a knee injury. We will have to wait to see the extent of the injury, and how long Chase Young will be out, but it does not look good for him right now.

Hard to say what this could be with any certainty, but you hope it's not the achilles. @ProFootballDoc what's your take? pic.twitter.com/H1ojSFlJuC
