Redskins-Cowboys: FB Darrel Young out with hamstring injury

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Washington Redskins will be without starting fullback Darrel Young as they take on the Dallas Cowboys Monday night. Young, a second-year pro, was limited by a hamstring injury for all of last week’s practices, and didn’t partake in Friday’s session.

Sellers is epected to help handle fullback duties against the Cowboys, and tight end Chris Cooley could chip in as well.

Young has carried the ball once for seven yards this season and has one catch for four yards.

The Redskins run the bulk of their offensive sets out of either multiple-tight end/no fullback or three-receiver/no fullback formations, however. In Week 1, Young took 13 of Washington’s 65 offensive snaps, and in Week 2, he was on the field for 19 of the team’s 82 snaps.

Cornerback Josh Wilson and rookie backup safety DeJon Gomes also had been limited in practice this week with back and hamstring injuries, respectively. Wilson will start at cornerback, but Gomes has been ruled inactive.
