News came out early in the week that Young had torn his hamstring and was expected to miss 4-6 weeks. It was always a long shot that at 34, Young would have any chance of reviving a football career that seemed to have ended years ago. Young last threw a pass in an NFL game in 2011 and announced his retirement in 2014.
