Redskins lose Guice for season to torn ACL


The powerful back suffered the injury while being tackled on a 34-yard run in Thursday's preseason opener versus the New England Patriots. Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice left the game after going down with an apparent injury. The initial thought was a sprained MCL, suggesting he'd miss a few weeks. Previous year at LSU, Guice was hampered by a hyperextended knee, limiting his snaps and forcing him to miss a game. It's not clear whether that previous injury made him more susceptible to the torn ACL, but there were National Football League teams that did extra evaluation on his medical status leading up to the draft because of that knee.

UPDATE: The Redskins confirmed Guice tore his ACL. Both players are expected to make a full recovery and are looking forward to playing in 2019. Guice's injury likely puts an even greater emphasis on Washington's passing game, especially considering the creative ways in which Gruden can try to replicate the run game with passes to Thompson, Jamison Crowder and Jordan Reed.
