Top Dareke Young News

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: May not return as soon as eligible

    General manager John Schneider said Monday he hopes to have Young (groin) return from IR "down the road" this season, Gregg Bell of the News Tribune reports.

    Young underwent a groin procedure a week and a half ago, but it sounds like he may not be able to return from IR at his first eligible date. The second-year pro will need to miss a minimum of four games, and with the Seahawks having a Week 5 bye, his earliest possible return date would be Week 6. Jake Bobo and Cody Thompson (shoulder) should handle expanded depth roles to open the season.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: Goes to IR

    Seattle placed Young (hip) on its injured reserve list Monday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Young will now have to miss at least Seattle's first four games of the 2023 season. Considering the relatively thin state of the Seahawks' wide receiver depth chart beyond the starting duo of Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, Young's absence could well mean regular snaps for undrafted rookie Jake Bobo.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: May need surgery

    Head coach Pete Carroll noted Tuesday that Young (hip) is dealing with "an abductor thing" that may require surgery, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Young has been dealing with a hip/abdomen injury since Aug. 6, causing him to miss the Seahawks' first preseason game. He was able to play in Saturday's 22-14 preseason win over the Cowboys but failed to haul in any of his three targets. If Young is required to sit out for an extended period of time, that opens the door for undrafted rookie Jake Bobo to earn a depth spot on the final 53-man roster.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: Catchless outing

    Young (hip) didn't catch any of his three targets in Saturday's 22-14 preseason win over the Cowboys.

    Young missed the first preseason game due to a hip injury. He struggled in this outing, dropping a pass on third down to end a drive in the first quarter. The 2022 seventh-round pick still has a good chance to make the final roster because Dee Eskridge is facing a six-game suspension, but the emergence of undrafted rookie Jake Bobo muddies the waters.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: Considered day-to-day

    Coach Pete Carroll said Sunday that Young is considered day-to-day due to a hip/abdomen injury, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

    Young had a limited role for the Seahawks in 2022, securing both of his targets for 24 yards. It's unclear whether his injury in camp will prevent him from suiting up for Thursday's preseason opener against the Vikings.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: Quiet 2022 campaign

    Young finished the 2022 regular season with two catches (two targets) for 24 yards.

    The rookie seventh-round pick was effective enough on special teams to stay in the lineup even when he wasn't in the offensive game plan, but he finished with 105 offensive snaps over 13 games. He also caught his lone postseason target for an 11-yard gain. Young is a big-bodied receiver (6-3, 220) that ran a 4.47 40-yard dash, so he certainly has some upside. The former Division II receiver will need to make great strides during the offseason to secure an increased role in 2023.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: Makes first NFL catches

    Young caught both of his targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 19-16 overtime win over the Rams.

    Young ranked fourth among the team's wide receivers with a 24 percent snap share, and he caught his first two NFL passes in the process. The seventh-round rookie is a standout athlete that will remain active because of his role on special teams, but his offensive duties will fluctuate based on the game plan during the playoffs.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: First career catch called back

    Young played two offensive snaps in Thursday's 21-13 loss to the 49ers and didn't record a catch.

    Young did haul in a 22-yard pass in the second quarter, but it was negated by a holding call. That would've been his first career catch. He could have more opportunities to snag his first pass in Week 16 versus the Chiefs because Tyler Lockett is expected to miss at least one game with a broken finger, leaving DK Metcalf and Marquise Goodwin as the top pass catchers. Young and Penny Hart will battle for the No. 3 job, and it wouldn't be surprising to see both players handle a modest snap count.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: Plays one snap Week 12

    Young wasn't targeted while playing one of the Seahawks' 65 snaps on offense in Sunday's 40-34 overtime loss to the Raiders.

    Dee Eskridge's (hand) move to injured reserve ahead of the Week 12 contest didn't translate to any added opportunities on offense for Young. Rather than turning to Young to replace Eskridge as the Seahawks' No. 4 receiver, practice-squad call-up Laquon Treadwell (seven snaps) handled that role.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: No targets Sunday

    Young wasn't targeted in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Cardinals.

    Young logged 13 offensive snaps in the divisional win because WR Marquise Goodwin (hamstring) was inactive. It's notable that WR Penny Hart was healthy but didn't handle an offensive snap, so it appears that Young has moved up to the No. 5 spot on the Seahawks wide receiver depth chart.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: Not targeted in win

    Young wasn't targeted in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Giants.

    Young logged just four offensive snaps, as he slotted in as the No. 5 wide receiver. He'll have a minimal role the rest of the season unless injuries pile up.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: No targets in win

    Young wasn't targeted in Sunday's 37-23 win over the Chargers.

    Young handled a season-high 17 offensive snaps because DK Metcalf exited early with a knee injury. If Metcalf misses time, Young will likely slot in as the No. 4 wide receiver behind Tyler Lockett, Marquise Goodwin and Dee Eskridge. Penny Hart (hamstring) could run in front of Young when he returns, too.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: Minimal role in win

    Young wasn't targeted in Sunday's 19-9 win over the Cardinals.

    Young has only played in two games this season; he has been a healthy scratch in three games but also sat out once with a quadricep injury. The rookie could handle a few more snaps if Penny Hart, who was out with a hamstring injury Sunday, misses additional time, but Young won't be on fantasy radars this season.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: Not listed on injury report

    Young doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's matchup against the Cardinals, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

    Young didn't practice Wednesday due to a quadriceps injury that's kept him out since the season opener. However, he returned to practice in a limited fashion Thursday and, presumably, progressed to full participation Friday. The rookie seventh-round pick played nine total snaps (four offensive) during Week 1 but failed to record any counting stats.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: Won't play Sunday

    Young (quadricep) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints, Brady Henderson of reports.

    Young practiced in a limited capacity to open the week Wednesday, but he's since failed to participate in either of Thursday's or Friday's sessions as he tends to a quadriceps issue. The 224-pound receiver saw four offensive snaps and five defensive snaps in the team's season opener against Denver; however, he's been sidelined in each of Seattle's subsequent three contests due to his injury. Young's next opportunity to return to action comes next Sunday against Arizona, where he'd likely serve as the Seahawks' No. 6 receiver behind Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf, Marquise Goodwin (knee/back), Dee Eskridge and Penny Hart.
