Young returns to lineup
All-Star sidelined one game with right ankle sprain
HOUSTON -- Michael Young was back in the lineup on Sunday after missing just one game with a Grade 2 sprain on the outside of his right ankle.Young tested the ankle Sunday morning before the Rangers faced the Astros at Minute Maid Park and decided he was ready to go. A Grade 2 is considered medium severity in a sprain. "The doctor told me it was a Grade 2, and it's pretty much up to me whatever I can handle," Young said before the game. "I went out there and it was good enough for me, so it's time to play." Young underwent treatment both during and after Saturday's game and that alleviated much of the swelling, which allowed him to discard the crutches.
