Ron Rivera on Chase Young: Everything is positive

Mike Florio and Chris Simms preview the Week 8 matchup between the Washington Commanders and Indianapolis Colts and wonder if Sam Ehlinger will be able to overcome the Washington defense.

Washington coach Ron Rivera said in a TV interview Monday that edge rusher Chase Young “more than likely” would return to practice Wednesday. Today is Thursday, and Young hasn’t returned to practice.

A report earlier in the day indicated Young would not practice this week, and Rivera has confirmed it.

“We’ll be able to start him next week,” Rivera said, via Pete Hailey of

Young had his final meeting with Dr. James Andrews earlier in the day.

“Everything is positive,” Rivera said.

Young tore an ACL in the Nov. 14 game last season. The Commanders play the Eagles on a Monday night on Nov. 14 this year, so it could be exactly a year when he returns to game action.
