Officially Young was diagnosed with a groin injury, and he missed time last month during training camp with a hip flexor issue. Here's the play:

The number two overall pick this year, Young's made a dramatic impact on the field through two games. Going into Sunday's games Young was tied for the NFL lead in sacks with 2.5.
Young has also been a consistent tackler and playmaker against the run too.
When Young left the game, Washington was leading 7-3, the first lead the team has held in the first half this year.
To make matters worse, defensive tackle Matt Ioannidis was also ruled out for Sunday's contest with an arm injury.
