Rookie RB Guice has sprained MCL

Posted August 11, 2018

- Washington Redskins rookie running back Derrius Guice will be sidelined for the 2018 season after suffering an ACL injury during the team's first preseason game Thursday evening, the team announced.

On Guice's sixth carry of the night, he was tackled from behind and stayed on the ground.

Washington averaged 90.5 yards rushing last season, fifth-worst in the NFL.

The news is also a significant blow to Guice - and the latest knee injury to slow down his football career. We're probably going to see them use a tandem moving forward where one guy handles first downs, shorter second and third downs, and short-yardage/goal-line work, while another back works longer second and third downs and the two-minute drill.

With the 2018 season rapidly approaching, and with Tom Brady entering his age 41 season, the quarterback and the team are close to settling some changes to his contract.

"I just make sure I go out there and I make a few plays that the catch the coaches' eyes and stuff like that and put myself in a great position", Kelley said.

Washington has a lot of imperfect running backs, and only Guice was a potential three-down player. Tight end Manasseh Garner suffered a torn ACL, while wide receiver Trey Quinn (stomach) and defensive end Matt Ioannidis (leg) were also hurt.
