 Draft Scout Willie Young News
10/10/17 - LB Willie Young did not play or practice on Friday and Saturday because of a triceps injury that requires surgery. He was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. Without Young, Leonard Floyd took 93 percent of the snaps and Pernell McFee had 64 percent, while Sam Acho was on for 41 percent.
10/05/17 - LB Willie Young (triceps) practiced on a limited basis due to an injury suffered against Green Bay.
09/14/17 - LB Willie Young's ability as a pass rusher may have been the reason he had only 34 percent of the snaps in Sunday's loss while Sam Acho had 68 percent. It may change this week with the Bucs more likely to take chances downfield. The Falcons were throwing off short drops and getting it away quickly, and Young is more of an outside rusher who can get around the tackle but is more effective against deeper drops. "We were playing a team that passed the ball a lot, and we just felt more comfortable with Sam in there in the base stuff," defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said.
08/07/17 - LB Willie Young (groin) suffered a strain during the second week of training camp and is limited in practice.
12/28/16 - LB Willie Young (knee) did not practice Wednesday but is expected to play Sunday. Young, who has 7.5 sacks, has been dealing with the injury throughout the season.
