Raiders S Usama Young is done for the season with tears to his ACL and MCL.

The Raiders will turn to liability Brandian Ross opposite Charles Woodson the rest of the way. An already weak secondary gets weaker with Young's loss. He was playing well as a deep safety in the back of DC Jason Tarver's 3-4 scheme.

Raiders S Usama Young suffered a serious knee injury in Sunday's Week 7 loss to the Cardinals.

Young as carted off in the third quarter and coach Tony Sparano said the prognosis "probably won't be great." Young was only starting because of Tyvon Branch's season-ending foot injury sustained in Week 3. The next man up would be Brandian Ross.

Raiders re-signed S Usama Young to a two-year contract.

Young finished 2013 on IR with a neck injury, but should be fine for the start of the season. A rotational safety, Young finished 2013 with 26 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and one interception.

Raiders placed FS Usama Young on injured reserve with a neck injury, ending his season.

Young suffered the injury in Week 13 and would have been a long shot to return this season. A rotational safety, he finishes 2013 with 26 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and one interception. The Raiders have just two healthy safeties on their active roster, so it's a sign Tyvon Branch (fibula/ankle) could return next week.
Sat, Dec 7, 2013 04:26:00 PM

Raiders agreed to terms with S Usama Young, formerly of the Browns.

The former Brown and Saint is reuniting with coach Dennis Allen, who served as his DBs coach in New Orleans from 2008-10. Young started 11 games for the Browns last season. Young is best suited for a reserve role, but will likely start opposite Tyvon Branch. He notched 53 tackles, 1.5 sacks and three interceptions in 2012, so he may at least provide some big-play ability.

Free agent S Usama Young met with the Bengals.

Young, 27, started 11 games at free safety for the Browns last season. He registered 53 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and three interceptions while battling a concussion and knee injury. Young is best suited as a reserve and would serve as depth at safety while contributing on special teams.

Browns released S Usama Young.

Recovering from thumb surgery, Young was going into the final year of his contract. Young stuffed the stat-sheet in 2012, tallying 53 tackles, 1.5 sacks and three interceptions, but also dealt with a concussion and knee injury. A replacement-level talent, Young failed to win a starting job out of camp. Going on 28, Young should draw interest as a third safety.
Tue, Apr 2, 2013 04:14:00 PM

Browns placed FS Usama Young on injured reserve, ending his season.

Young has a thumb injury that will likely require surgery. He started 11 games this year, compiling 53 tackles and setting career-highs in sacks (1.5) and interceptions (3). He'll likely be back as a starter next to T.J. Ward in 2013, the final year of his contract.
Wed, Dec 26, 2012 11:09:00 AM

Browns FS Usama Young (concussion) has resumed practicing.

Young practiced Wednesday for the first time since he was concussed against the Steelers in Week 12. He'll grab the starting job back from rookie Tashaun Gipson. Young posted 42 tackles, 1.5 sacks, two interceptions and six pass breakups through the first 10 games of the season.
Thu, Dec 6, 2012 09:14:00 AM

Browns FS Usama Young left Sunday's Weeks 12 game against the Steelers with a head injury and will not return.

Young tried to tackle Heath Miller in the open field and got absolutely trucked. He had to be helped to the locker room by trainers. It's almost certainly a concussion.
Sun, Nov 25, 2012 02:58:00 PM

Browns FS Usama Young (knee) is "feeling a lot better."

The Browns hadn't commented on Young's status since he left Thursday night's loss. "We’ll see. I’ve gotta take it day by day," Young said Monday. "I was able to do some moving around on it. I’m moving around on it pretty good." With Tashaun Gipson also ailing, Eric Hagg could return to the starting lineup if Young isn't ready for Week 5.
Mon, Oct 1, 2012 02:22:00 PM

Browns safeties Usama Young and Tashaun Gipson both left Thursday's Week 4 game versus the Ravens with knee injuries.

The extent of the injuries is unknown. Young had replaced early-season starter Eric Hagg (inactive Thursday night) as the starting free safety, with Gipson as the new backup. Strong safety T.J. Ward was spotted with a cast on his hand after the game, but said he didn't know if the hand was broken.
Fri, Sep 28, 2012 09:11:00 AM

Usama Young has been promoted into the Browns' starting lineup at free safety, displacing Eric Hagg.

Hagg was victimized on Bengals WR Brandon Tate's 44-yard touchdown pass in Week 2 and also missed a tackle. The depth chart change still says more about Hagg's struggles than Young as an expected upgrade. Young nearly lost his roster spot in training camp to undrafted free agent rookie Tashaun Gipson.
Fri, Sep 21, 2012 07:27:00 PM

Browns S Usama Young is in danger of losing his roster spot ahead of final cuts.

No longer in the running for a starting job, Young may need a big preseason finale to convince Cleveland he's worth a roster spot as a fifth safety. FS Eric Hagg and SS T.J. Ward are locked in as first-teamers. David Sims has outplayed Young in preseason games, and Raymond Ventrone is a key special teamer.
