Young suffered a torn ACL/MCL on Sunday and will miss the remainder of the season, Scott Bair of CSN reports.

Young was helped off the field in the third quarter and carted to the locker room. He took over the starting job after Tyvon Branch went down with a broken foot in Week 3 and played nearly every step over the past four weeks. He'll miss the remainder of the season, and his recovery could carry over into the start of the 2015 season.

Young will take over as the starter at strong safety for the Raiders with Tyvon Branch (foot) out for the season, ESPN.com reports.

With Branch officially back on IR after suffering a broken foot in last Sunday's loss to the Patriots, Young will step into the starting lineup opposite Charles Woodson. Last season, Young recorded 26 tackles (20 solo) and 2.5 sacks in 12 games, so while he should see plenty of opportunities for tackles in the secondary, he won't be worthy of serious IDP consideration in most leagues until he shows it on the field.

Raiders re-signed FS 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.

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. He 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.

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.

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.
