Washington Football Team quarterback Taylor Heinicke received a major endorsement ahead of his first regular-season start since 2018.

"I think (Heinicke) can start on any other team in the league," defensive end Chase Young said Tuesday, according to The Athletic's Rhiannon Walker.

Heinicke is replacing Ryan Fitzpatrick, who's expected to be sidelined for six-to-eight weeks after he suffered a hip injury during Sunday's game. The 28-year-old passer completed 11 of his 15 passes for 122 yards and one touchdown in relief against the Los Angeles Chargers.
