Commanders edge rusher Chase Young tore his ACL on Nov. 14, 2021, but also ruptured a his patella. Dr. James Andrews used a graft from the tendon in Young’s left knee to repair Young’s right knee. That made his recovery longer than normal.
More than a year later, Young still has not returned to game action.
“I wish it was a faster process, but it is what it is,” Young said, via video from Ben Standig of TheAthletic.com. “. . . Just being patient. Got to be patient.”
