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.

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.
