Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice out for 2018 season with ACL injury

ATTENDANCE Tom Brady’s contract: Patriots add $5M in new incentives

He told reporters afterward he was fine, but an MRI on Friday revealed the diagnosis.

With the 2018 season rapidly approaching, and with Tom Brady entering his age 41 season, the quarterback and the team are close to settling some changes to his contract.

Prior to Guice's injury, Washington's running back situation was in a bit of a "three-for-all" in terms of who will see the majority of touches behind veteran Chris Thompson, a 5-foot-8, 195-pound back better utilized in the passing game.

Guice hyperextended his left knee at LSU last season but was held out of only one game.

In camp, Guice had been splitting first-team carries with Kelley and Samaje Perine.

Through such investments, Samsung plans to foster AI, 5G, biotechnology and electronic components as key future growth engines. The announcement sent shares in Samsung's contract drugmaker Biologics and in its IT affiliate SDS up five per cent.


Per NFL's Ian Rapoport, there was hope Guice had only suffered an MCL injury, but the young running back's walk off the plane "was concerning". ACL tears typically take at least six months to recover from and the track record of being the same player has been mixed.

Samaje Perine: "Bounce back bout to be insane!"

Washington has also had a recent history of their high-profile draft picks not being able to stay healthy. Last season, Brady finished in the top five of all those categories during an MVP campaign. Payne has made progress and is expected to return soon.

Guice injured the knee on an impressive 34-yard run that was ultimately called back because of a holding penalty.

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