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.
The "tentative plan" is for Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) to play in Thursday's preseason game against the Falcons, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's big news after we heard just last week that Guice wasn't yet cleared for game action. We'll see what he does and how he looks on Thursday, which will be his 1st action since tearing his ACL in last year's preseason opener. A healthy Guice would be the favorite to lead Washington in carries this season.
Redskins HC Jay Gruden said Tuesday that RB Derrius Guice (knee) still hasn't been cleared to play in games. He's been practicing since the start of training camp, but this is a reminder that he's still not at 100%. We'll see if Guice is able to play in Washington's 3rd exhibition. Regardless, he figures to be eased back in early on this season.
Redskins RB Derrius Guice has avoided the PUP list to open training camp and will not be limited, HC Jay Gruden said Wednesday. It's excellent news after Guice suffered a hamstring injury a few weeks ago that was said to have him questionable for the start of camp. Gruden described the injury as a "tweak" and confirmed that it's not a concern now. "He's in good shape," Gruden added. Guice, of course, still needs to put last August's torn ACL behind him. If healthy, though, he has the talent to emerge as Washington's clear lead back. Guice has become a potential value at his 7th-round, RB33 ADP.
Washington RB Derrius Guice suffered a hamstring injury a few weeks ago that has him questionable for the start of training camp, according to Erin Hawksworth of 106.7 The Fan. It's not clear how significant the injury is, though it's hard to imagine a serious ailment staying quiet for a few weeks at this point. The situation is obviously more worrisome given that Guice is coming off an ACL tear that cost him his rookie season. We'll see when he becomes available in camp and how he fares beyond that. Fortunately, Guice was going just 34th among RBs in best-ball drafts on PlayDraft even before this news. So you don't need to invest too heavily if you want to take a chance now.
There were whispers that the Redskins' selection of Stanford RB Bryce Love in the 4th round of the draft was a bad sign for RB Derrius Guice's recovery from last year's torn ACL. HC Jay Gruden said Saturday that that isn't the case and that Guice is on track to be "full-go" before training camp. He reportedly needed 4 surgeries on the injured knee -- 1 to repair the ligament and 3 more to address an infection. Guice's status will be 1 of the bigger storylines in fantasy football come August. Love, of course, is also recovering from a torn ACL suffered in December. He told reporters that he's hoping to be ready at some point during training camp.
