"I've dealt with it in the past before, probably the last several seasons," Young said before the game about his injury. "This season it's felt the best, but there have been times where it just locks up and I've got to get off it.
"Once I get off it, it literally feels much, much better, almost to the point where I really don't feel it at all."
Young said afterward it remained a little sore, but "was better than I thought it would be."
