What Now in Washington with Guice Out for Season?

Washington Redskins rookie running back Derrius Guice, earlier thought to have a sprained MCL, was just diagnosed with a torn ACL.

A second-round draft choice out of LSU, Guice had 19 yards on six carries before leaving the game.

On Guice's sixth carry of the night, he was tackled from behind and stayed on the ground. Quarterbacks that are not protected or given time to operate inside the pocket usually suffer numerous injuries during the grind of an National Football League season.

Chris Thompson tweeted that he "had a tough time (trying to) hold back the tears" when he learned about the injury.

Guice hyperextended his left knee at LSU last season but was held out of only one game.

Before his injury, Guice was having a strong training camp, taking snaps with the first unit and displaying the same "violent" running style that he was known for. An MRI taken Friday revealed that Guice tore his ACL, knocking him out for the entire 2018 season.

In a statement, the Redskins said Guice was expected to make a full recovery and looked forward to playing in 2019. Kelley averaged 3.13 yards per carry across 62 attempts throughout an injury-plagued 2017 season before being placed on the injured reserve following an abysmal showing against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 10.

On Thursday, several reports surfaced about new incentives added to Tom Brady's contract that would allow the quarterback to earn $5 million more in 2018.
