Derrius Guice tears ACL in Redskins preseason opener, out for 2018 season

  • ATTENDANCE

It was reported early Friday that the initial diagnosis was a sprained MCL, but a subsequent MRI revealed the full extent of the injury.

But now, Guice will spend the 2018 season rehabbing.

"Grabbing him in the second round was obviously a great treat for us, but character was never a concern", coach Jay Gruden said recently, pointing to injuries and the quality of running backs as reasons for Guice falling in the draft. He had suffered a hyperextended knee (yes, the same knee) at LSU but opted against surgery, also per Rapoport. Injuries to Week 1 starter Rob Kelley and prolific third-down back Chris Thompson contributed to that, and Guice was expected to be a major part of solving the problem. ACL tears typically take at least six months to recover from and the track record of being the same player has been mixed. Who steps up? It could be Samaje Perine, who had a disappointing rookie season in 2017 but had excellent college production at Oklahoma.


Brady's current contract runs through the 2019 season, and Schefter's report did not indicate that current talks would include an extension.

Guice wasn't the only player injured in Thursday's preseason opener, either.

The team also announced that tight end Manasseh Garner will miss the season with an ACL injury sustained in Thursday night's game.
