The Washington Commanders come into a Week 13 matchup with the New York Giants as the winners of three games in a row and six of their last seven. In fact, if the playoffs began today, the Commanders would make the playoffs despite currently sitting in last place in the NFC East.

Chase Young Injury Update

They've done this despite being without some important players. Now we have a little bit of a better idea whether or not that will change on Sunday. Both defensive end Chase Young and running back Antonio Gibson are questionable, which is better than being ruled out.

Young hasn't played yet this season after tearing his ACL last November. We have heard for weeks about Young's potential return being on the horizon, and it looks like Week 13 could finally be his time.

It would be a great spot for his return too, in a dvisional game, right in the heat of a playoff race. Adding a super talented pass rusher is always a great sign. You'd imagine they would bring Young on a little slow, so he might be on a limited snap count, but it's stil lbetter than him being on the sidelines.

Gibson didn't miss last week's game, but he did suffer a foot injury and with rookie Brian Robinson putting up his best career game last week, Gibson's duties in the backfield seem less crucial now.

The Commanders go up against the Giants in Week 13, where Washington is a 1.5-point road favorite, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
