Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice out for 2018 season with ACL injury

Final wet prep for preseason opener

Final wet prep for preseason opener

Guice sprained his left knee at LSU last season, but missed only one game.

The New England Patriots quarterback, who was held out of Thursday night's preseason game versus the Washington Redskins, has a minor sore back, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of the issue. This is a huge blow to a Washington offense that was expecting big things from Guice, the No. 59 overall pick in this year's draft.

Prior to Guice's injury, Washington's running back situation was in a bit of a "three-for-all" in terms of who will see the majority of touches behind veteran Chris Thompson, a 5-foot-8, 195-pound back better utilized in the passing game.

Schefter also mentioned Gronkowski's restructure from last season.

The rest of the running back depth chart leaves much to be desired. Bibbs, meanwhile, got all four of his carries in the second half, racking up 48 yards.

Rookie Derrius Guice's much-anticipated debut season in the National Football League is already over before it began.

Tom Brady's contract will get a major boost in value if the five-time Super Bowl champion posts another strong season in 2018, according to a report Thursday.

In Weeks 11-17, Perine averaged 2.65 yards after contact per attempt, ranking 12th among running backs with at least 100 attempts in said span.

If anyone is a victor from a fantasy perspective here, it's Alex Smith. He entered off the bench and, barring injury, should do so in the regular season.
