For a few weeks now, Washington Commanders fans have been hearing about and wondering when Chase Young would finally make his debut this season. Young tore his ACL last November and is still working his way back from that injury.

While he began praciting a couple of weeks ago, his 21-day window to be officially activated is closing and ends on November 23. So while originally people logically thought that would mean he'd be ready by Week 11, that might not be the case.

Ian Rapoport is reporting that Young might still need some additional time before he sees any game action and that the Commanders game against the Atlanta Falcons on November 27 might be a more realitic return date.

Now, young would still have to be added to the 53-man roster by the 23rd, but the 27th would be his first time playig in an actual game. Young is still only in his third season, but showed a lot of promise as a rookie, and seemed to be on his way to become a real force on the defensive line before his injuiry last season.

Regardless when Young comes back, he will be an instant X-factor for offenses to pay attention to. With him still being so early in his career, it's better that the Commanders take a cautious approach to his return.

The Commanders are currently 3-point road favorites against the Houston Texans in Week 11, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
