Derrius Guice Suffers Season-Ending Torn ACL
As NFL.com reported it, despite initial optimism about running back Derrius Guice's knee injury, the Washington Redskins received terrible news on Friday.

The rookie suffered a torn ACL during Thursday's preseason game. The Redskins confirmed the injury and that Guice will miss his rookie season in a statement released a short time ago.

Guice's injury is a big blow to the Redskins backfield. The powerful rookie was expected to be an early-down thumper and complement to pass-catching back Chris Thompson. After just one preseason game, Washington is back to the drawing board.

With the rookie done for the year, Samaje Perine and Robert Kelly will battle for early-down duties. The Redskins also have Kapri Bibbs, Byron Marshall and undrafted rookie Martez Carter on the backfield depth chart.

Guice wasn't the only Redskins player to receive bad news Friday. Tight end Manasseh Garner will also miss the 2018 season due to an ACL tear.
