The Redskins have placed RB Derrius Guice (knee) on IR. It's unclear if he'll be a candidate to return, but he's out for at least 8 weeks. Guice can be dropped in leagues without an IR spot or super deep benches. Adrian Peterson steps back in as Washington's lead back after rushing for 1,042 yards on 4.2 yards per carry last year. Peterson won't contribute much in the passing game, though, and should only be considered a RB3 on fantasy rosters.

Redskins RB Derrius Guice indeed underwent surgery on Thursday and is out "indefinitely," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We should get a more concrete timetable for Guice's return over the next few days. He's worth stashing if you have an IR spot or a deep bench. But he's also cuttable if you're desperate for immediate help. Adrian Peterson takes over as Washington's lead back, with Chris Thompson continuing to dominate passing-down work.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that the "likelihood" is that Redskins RB Derrius Guice undergoes surgery on Thursday to trim his meniscus. That procedure would sideline him 4-6 weeks. The 'Skins were reportedly hoping that Guice could avoid surgery, but the knee hasn't improved over the past few days. Adrian Peterson will step back in as Washington's lead ball-carrier for however long Guice is out.

Redskins RB Derrius Guice is dealing with a meniscus injury, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. The team "hopes" it's just a sprain and that Guice can return "in a few weeks" but is still awaiting the test results. We should get a more concrete timetable in the next 24 hours. Guice will be worth hanging on to if this injury is relatively minor. Adrian Peterson will take over as Washington's lead ball-carrier in the meantime.

Redskins RB Derrius Guice injured his right knee in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This is the opposite knee in which Guice tore the ACL last summer. "He’s likely to miss some time," Rapoport tweeted. "The hope is he does not need surgery, but the team is doing a full evaluation." We'll update Guice's status when we learn more. His absence would again leave Adrian Peterson as Washington's lead ball-carrier.

Injury Predictor

Guice enjoyed an explosive LSU career that included leading the SEC in rushing in 2016, with Leonard Fournette still on his team. A left-knee strain cost Guice a game in 2017 and limited him in others. His yards per carry dipped from 7.6 in 2016 to 5.3. In Washington, Guice should immediately assume lead ball-carrying duties, with Chris Thompson dominating the pass-catching role.
