Chase Young on Rashawn Slater: "He has real good feet, strong hands. Their whole O-line is looking pretty good, so as a D-line, we're pretty excited to get after it."— Nicki Jhabvala (@NickiJhabvala) September 9, 2021
This is the matchup Young doubters and Slater stans have waited for all summer. https://t.co/4gvSO9tV3b— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) September 9, 2021
Improving situational awareness:
"If you see me make a crazy fast play...I've seen the formation," Chase Young on how he'll know he's improved in his situational awareness— Rhiannon Walker (@InstantRHIplay) September 9, 2021
Young on what he learned from Ohio State defensive line coach Larry Johnson: he's the guru. He still shows film to Johnson to this day.— Zach Selby (@ZachSelbyWFT) September 9, 2021
Week 1 at home:
Chase Young wants a packed stadium with crazy fans. He knows what it can be in DC when this team is dominant pic.twitter.com/AQb6uMw71o— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) September 9, 2021
JDR always talks about Chase Young's toolbox, so I asked CY about that. He said: "You have your toolbox and it's really about perfecting those moves. Practice is where you start to try a lot." On 3rd and 10, though, he said he goes to the move he knows is his "bread and butter"— Pete Hailey (@PeteHaileyNBCS) September 9, 2021
.@youngchase907 "It's an honor. More motivation to keep doing my thing." on being named captain again.— Chris Russell AKA The Rooster (@Russellmania621) September 9, 2021
Says he knows what he's doing on 3rd & 10 type situation —QB's know too.
Learned how to take even better care of his body for the longer #NFL grind. @LockedWFTPod @team980
Be where your feet are at:
Young's motto this year is to be where his feet are at — a favorite saying of Ron Rivera. He doesn't want to get too high or too low.— Zach Selby (@ZachSelbyWFT) September 9, 2021
Charles Leno Jr.

Leno said Fitzpatrick is a very upbeat and determined person. He’s a good guy to be around.— Zach Selby (@ZachSelbyWFT) September 9, 2021
First non-Bears game:
Sunday will be Charles Leno Jr.'s 103rd career NFL game, but first in a non-Bears uniform. It won't be weird for him, though. He said he got all the weirdness out in the preseason. Ready to roll vs. LA— Pete Hailey (@PeteHaileyNBCS) September 9, 2021
LT Charles Leno Jr.: Steak medium.— Sam Fortier (@Sam4TR) September 9, 2021
He says he used to like medium well, when he didn't know what steak was while living in Oakland. Someone in Boise got him right.
Today's presser with Charles Leno has been primarily about steakhouses and O-line dinners and the collective caloric capacity of an offensive line and why medium steak is preferred.— Nicki Jhabvala (@NickiJhabvala) September 9, 2021
We are in regular-season form.
William Jackson III
William Jackson III: “It feels like I’ve known these guys all my life” in the secondary. Is pleased with where their communication is with each other pic.twitter.com/C5FwOkX5Rf— Pete Hailey (@PeteHaileyNBCS) September 9, 2021
All in for Week 1:
Some very good news for Washington- William Jackson III 100 percent for Week 1. WJ3 says the missed time during camp was just a precaution pic.twitter.com/5BcFwEm9yl— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) September 9, 2021
Brandon Scherff told us yesterday the OL gets their grub on at DC Prime. William Jackson just shared that the secondary dines at Ruth's Chris. Hope they can maintain locker room cohesion despite these differences.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) September 9, 2021
One thing William Jackson III said the DBs get together for 'fellowship' by going to Ruth's Chris. Said he opts for the Filet mignon; medium well.— John Keim (@john_keim) September 9, 2021
