The injuries on offense are beginning to pile up for the Redskins less than a week into training camp.
With linemen Jammal Brown (hip) and Kory Lichtensteiger (knee surgery) already sidelined, fullback Darrel Young suffered a strained hamstring early in Monday’s practice.
His availability for Tuesday’s session is unclear, but he didn’t sound optimistic.
“I’m a little tight right now,” Young said. “I don’t know [because] I haven’t gotten an MRI yet. I’m going to go get worked on right now, see if I can go practice. If not, just get better.”
Young said the muscle unexpectedly seized up on him during one-on-one drills.
“It didn’t pull or anything,” he said. “It felt better when I woke up. It was a little sore last night after sitting in meetings.”
Asked if he had attempted to run since injuring himself, Young said: “I didn’t try; too scared to find out.”
Young missed two games last season with a hamstring injury.
“Same exact spot,” Young said.
“This can’t keep happening,” he added. “The first way to get yourself out of the place is not being on the field. Hopefully, they’ll give me some time to work with it and go from there.”
Dorson Boyce is the only other fullback on the Redskins’ roster.
