Washington No. 2 pick Young injures groin in loss to Browns
Washington rookie defensive end Chase Young’s outlook is uncertain after the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s draft left in the second quarter of a loss to Cleveland with a groin injury.
Young entered the game tied for the NFL lead with 2 1/2 sacks, but didn’t have much of an impact after an early pressure on Baker Mayfield in the Browns’ 34-20 victory. It wasn’t clear when Young got hurt.
Washington coach Ron Rivera didn’t have an update on Young after the game. The former Ohio State star was to be evaluated Monday. Young was on the sideline in the second half, and was animated while cheering on his teammates.
Philadelphia tight end Dallas Goedert left in the first quarter of a 23-23 tie against Cincinnati with an ankle injury. Receiver DeSean Jackson didn’t play in the second half because of a hamstring injury.
