Chase Young has addressed the suspension via his Twitter account, explaining that he accepted a loan from a family friend.
- Pro Football Talk hears that the “family friend” Young is referring to is actually an NFLPA certified agent, which could cause more issues for the agent than Young.

Ohio State is investigating DE Chase Young for a possible violation of NCAA rules from last year and he will not play in Saturday’s game against Maryland as a result.
Here’s the statement from Ohio State:
“Ohio State’s Chase Young will not play in this Saturday’s game between the Buckeyes and the Maryland Terrapins due to a possible NCAA issue from 2018 that the Department of Athletics is looking into.”
Young is arguably the best player in college football and in the discussion for the Heisman as a defensive player.
There has already been talk of him possibly going No. 1 overall in next year’s draft, even though there are some notable quarterback prospects.
Odds are that this matter will not impact his draft stock come next year, but it’s at least something to watch.
For his college career, Young has recorded 81 tackles, 27.5 sacks, seven forced fumbles and six pass defenses over the course of three seasons and 30 games.
