Washington Redskins fullback Darrel Young suffered a concussion in the team's 23-17 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, coach Mike Shanahan confirmed in his press conference on Monday. The Redskins' fullback was knocked out during the first half and did not return to the game. Most suspected a concussion, and now, that has been confirmed.

Young had taken over the job this season for the first time over incumbent Mike Sellers. If Young misses any time, Sellers will likely return to his role as fullback after making the team as a fourth tight end out of training camp. The 36-year old Sellers has been with the team for good since 2004.

In addition, Shanahan said that defensive end Stephen Bowen suffered a third-degree PCL tear in Sunday's loss, but added that he hopes Bowen will be able to play in next week's game against the New York Jets at FedEx Field.
