Redskins Rookie RB Derrius Guice Out For Season With Torn ACL

Update:

The Redskins have already confirmed the news.


Kimberly A. Martin reports that Redskins rookie RB Derrius Guice suffered a torn ACL during Thursday’s preseason game.

This is terrible news for Guice and Washington, as this will end his 2018 season and lead to him being placed on season-ending injured reserve in the coming days.

Earlier this morning, a report mentioned that the initial diagnosis for Guice was that he had a sprained MCL, but an MRI showed that the injury was worse than anticipated.

Guice, 21, was selected with the second round of this year’s draft by the Redskins. According to OverTheCap.com, Guice signed a four-year, $4,541,936 contract that includes a $1,383,224 signing bonus.

During his three-year college career at LSU, Guice rushed for 3,074 yards on 471 carries (6.5 YPC) to go along with 32 receptions for 250 yards receiving 32 total touchdowns over the course 35 games.
