The Facts: Two months after a season-ending knee injury, Guice is well aware of the perception that has formed over the first two years of his pro career: He’s injury-prone. The former LSU star wants to prove differently. “The main thing is getting through games healthy,” Guice said Saturday. “I’ve been a practice all-American so far. I’m trying to bring that to the field.”
Diehards Line:Since the 2018 second-rounder was drafted, he’s had three knee injuries — two surgeries — and appeared in only five games. He ended his 2019 season where he spent his rookie year: On injured reserve. Guice, who rushed for 245 yards and three touchdowns on 42 carries last season, said he sees the label “everywhere.” People may not tell him directly, he added, but he sees it. Under coach Ron Rivera, the Redskins added new trainer Ryan Vermillion -- and Guice said the two have been at the team’s facility, getting to know each other. When the Redskins return for OTAs in the spring, Guice said he anticipates being 100% healthy. He added he was “happy” with the progress of his rehab and how his body felt. But there will be many — Guice included — who won’t be happy until the running back makes it through a full season. “I just gotta keep elevating and moving forward,” Guice said.
