Redskins rookie RB Guice to miss season with torn ACL

Redskins rookie RB Guice to miss season with torn ACL

Washington Redskins rookie running back Derrius Guice is out for the season after tearing the ACL in his left knee.

The Redskins said Guice, who was taken in the second round of the National Football League draft out of LSU, was expected to make a full recovery and was looking forward to playing in 2019. He was initially reported to have been diagnosed with an MCL sprain. He has made a quick first impression on his Redskins teammates, including quarterback Colt McCoy, who said Guice has been "fun to watch" and is a "great player".

Brady's current contract runs through the 2019 season, and Schefter's report did not indicate that current talks would include an extension.

Several scouts had questioned Guice's durability going into the draft.

Washington will open up the season on the road in Arizona on September 9.

We know Chris Thompson figures to be a big part of the backfield workforce, but he's also coming off a season-ending injury past year with a fractured right fibula Other candidates include Byron Marshall or Kapri Bibbs, who have some big-play ability. Some guys need modification for one reason or another. Kelley, a 2016 undrafted free agent who began last season as the starter, has gone from "Fat Rob" to "Fit Rob" and should now be considered the front-runner. They're not expecting him to come here and have a 500-yard season.

Beyond Kelley, Thompson and Perine, the Redskins have Kapri Bibbs, Byron Marshall and undrafted Martez Carter as running backs in camp.
