An MRI on Redskins RB Derrius Guice's injured left knee revealed a torn ACL, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Ugh. That'll end the rookie's season after a buzz-worthy spring and summer. It's worth noting that this is the same knee that Guice hyperextended at LSU last year, although it's unclear if that had anything to do with the ACL. The silver lining here is that Guice will have over 12 months to get ready for the start of the 2019 campaign. Washington is now back to Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine as early-down backs. Neither is an inspiring option. Kelley is averaging 3.9 yards per carry through 2 NFL seasons, while Perine mustered just 3.4 as a rookie last year. Kelley ran ahead of Perine in Washington's preseason opener on Thursday night, so consider him the favorite to lead the Redskins in carries for now. But the situation will be worth watching over the next month. Neither guy figures to reach beyond RB3 status, though. RB Chris Thompson will continue to dominate passing-down work in this backfield.
Redskins HC Jay Gruden said Tuesday that RB Derrius Guice (knee) is on track to participate in individual drills in OTAs and be a full-go for training camp. Guice tore his ACL last August and reportedly needed 4 surgeries -- the initial repair and 3 more to address an infection. The 2-year, $5 million deal Washington handed RB Adrian Peterson earlier this month suggests there's at least some concern about Guice's status. But, if healthy, he's the heavy favorite to operate as the lead back this year. We'll continue to keep a close eye on his rehab.
Redskins RB Derrius Guice needed 3 additional surgeries on his knee to address an infection that developed after the surgery to repair his torn ACL, the Washington Post reports. Guice referred to the procedures as "flushes" to drain fluid from the knee. He has no timetable for a return to the field -- although he's still hoping to be ready by early summer. Guice's rehab will be 1 of the biggest fantasy storylines this offseason.
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.
