08/11/13 - DE Willie Young is trying to shed his reputation as Mr. August, a training camp star who fades once the regular season starts. He was a dominant presence again Friday. It was his pressure on quarterback Mark Sanchez that forced his hurried pass that Ziggy Ansah picked off and ran back for a touchdown. He also had a tackle for loss and batted down a pass. Ndamukong Suh thinks this will be the year Young carries it over into the regular season. "He just needs to keep plugging away," Suh said. "He understands his role and what he's going to bring to this team. He's going to be, if not a starter, then a guy that's going to play tremendous minutes. Willie understands he's got a lot of potential. He can do a lot of things and hurt offenses in a lot of different ways. He has great athletic ability and that great ability is transitioning into having that mind and understanding of the game."
