Commanders Defensive End Could Make Season Debut In Week 15

The Washington Commanders have arguably been the NFC's hottest team in recent weeks, as they've overtaken the New York Giants in the NFC East, with a very good shot at the playoffs, and if they are to make it there, we could be watching a team that absolutely no one else in the NFC wants to play in crunch time. 

Getting back a former Defensive Rookie of the Year would no doubt help that cause, and after weeks of practicing and waiting, the opportunity for Chase Young could come in Week 15 as the Commanders battle the Giants in what could be a crucial game for the future of the NFC East.

Officially, Young is questionable ahead of Sunday Night Football, but it's closer than he's been to a return for quite some time, and if he can get a few games in before the playoffs, this is a team that could be a genuine dark horse in 2022.
