Chase Young will not play in Week 10 vs. Eagles

Washington Commanders fans will have to wait at least one more week for defensive end Chase Young.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported Monday morning that Young would not play in Washington’s Week 10 Monday night game at Philadelphia.

There are no setbacks with Young. The Commanders have preached patience throughout the year regarding Young, and that’s what’s happening here. The Commanders have a quick turnaround after Monday’s game. Washington is back on the road in Week 11 at Houston, so activating ahead of that game makes sense for the Commanders.

Head coach Ron Rivera and defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio spoke at length about Young over the weekend. Rivera was optimistic but said the Commanders would not activate Young until everyone agreed he was ready.

Del Rio appeared slightly pessimistic that Young could play Monday vs. the Eagles.
