The initial diagnosis on Redskins RB Derrius Guice's injured knee is a sprained MCL, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The rookie is undergoing an MRI today to get more details. The severity of the sprain will determine exactly how long he's sidelined. We'll pass along another update when we get one. Rob Kelley played ahead of Samaje Perine in Thursday night's preseason opener, making him the favorite to serve as Washington's early-down back if Guice misses regular-season time.

Washington RB Derrius Guice left Thursday night's preseason opener with a left knee issue. He was seen standing on the sideline after getting the joint checked, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the rookie will have an MRI Friday. We'll check out the results of that before reacting in our fantasy rankings. Guice dealt with nagging left knee trouble over his final season at LSU.

Receiving ability is the biggest on-field question for Redskins rookie RB Derrius Guice. He totaled just 32 catches across 3 seasons at LSU, topping out at 18 last year. But he's impressed in that facet this spring. "Any questions about his ability catching passes are over," insider JP Finlay writes. HC Jay Gruden, meanwhile, said "it's been very exciting" watching Guice in the passing game. Chris Thompson figures to remain Washington's primary pass-catching back this season. But if Guice can even tally 25-30 receptions, he'll have a shot to out-produce his current RB21 ADP.

The Redskins stopped LSU RB Derrius Guice’s slide, taking him with the 59th overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft. Guice reportedly slipped due to a bad pre-draft process which included missing meetings and workouts. Off-field stuff aside, he’s a borderline 1st-round talent. Guice was uber-productive on the ground for the Tigers, totaling 3,074 yards and 29 TDs on a 6.5 yards-per-carry average over the past 3 seasons. He ripped off 7.8 yards per carry across 2015 and 2016 in the same backfield as Leonard Fournette, who averaged 6.5 in those 2 seasons (although Fournette played through an ankle injury in 2016). Guice dealt a knee injury last year and saw his yards per carry dip to 5.3. When healthy, though, this guy is a explosive, tenacious runner who’s drawn Marshawn Lynch comps. The biggest question with Guice is his pass-catching ability. He caught just 32 balls over the past 3 seasons — although it’s worth noting that this current LSU offense doesn’t use its RBs in the passing game. Fournette, for example, totaled 40 receptions in 3 college seasons and then caught 36 balls as a rookie. This is a nice landing spot for Guice, who will only need to beat out Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley for the lead ball-carrying role. RB Chris Thompson will continue to dominate the pass-catching work.
