Derrius Guice (Knee) Will Likely Miss Extended Time
He missed all of last year with an injury to his other knee
Sources: #Redskins RB Derrius Guice had an MRI this morning on the other, non-ACL knee and he’s likely to miss some time. The hope is he does not need surgery, but the team is doing a full evaluation. He gained 18 yards on 10 carries, looking like he wasn’t himself.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 9, 2019
Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice earned the starting nod in Week 1, but rushed 10 times for only 18 yards. After recovering from an ACL injury, the shifty back wowed spectators all preseason due to his explosiveness, but couldn’t make an impact in the season opener.
Now we know why.
Adrian Peterson, who was shockingly a healthy inactive in Week 1, will likely step into a role ahead of their matchup against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 2. Dallas opened as 4.5-point road favorites after their dominant victory over the New York Giants in their opener.
Confirmed that Derrius Guice had an MRI on his non-surgically repaired knee. Source hopeful he won't be out long, but results TBD.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) September 9, 2019
Guice went into the medical tent during the game. Asked why postgame, Guice said nature called.
Adrian Peterson, sup.
It remains to be seen how long the young running back is out, but as Peterson showed last season, he’s still able to log a high volume of carries, even at his advanced age.
