The Washington Commanders had a practice in the bubble today due to the weather as they wrap up their short week. Washington will fly to California on Friday to play the 49ers. The big news after today’s practice was Ron Rivera saying that Chase Young will play for the first time since tearing his ACL and suffering a ruptured patellar tendon on November 14, 2021. Washington has been cautious with his return to the field, but it looks like this will be his week. It’s a huge game for Washington after their loss on Sunday night to the New York Giants that dropped them to the 7th seed in the NFC playoffs race.
