Washington Redskins' rookie running back Derrius Guice's season before it ever started. Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice left the game after going down with an apparent injury. Initially, the Redskins were optimistic that Guice had only sprained his MCL, and the former LSU star was in good spirits after the game, telling reporters, "all is well".

A first-round talent, the Redskins selected Guice with their second-round pick in April's draft.

Guice ran with bad intentions in his career with the Tigers, averaging north of 4.0 yards after contact per attempt in each of his first two seasons with the team (2015-16). He got seven carries in Washington's preseason debut after Kelley and Guice were done for the night, totaling 31 yards.

Chris Thompson tweeted that he "had a tough time (trying to) hold back the tears" when he learned about the injury. A year ago at LSU, Guice was hampered by a hyperextended knee, limiting his snaps and forcing him to miss a game.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani delivers a statement after a two day visit in Bern, Switzerland, July 3, 2018. Mr Bolton said Mr Pompeo would be prepared to return to North Korea for talks, but not for more rhetoric.

The Redskins' sigh of relief was quickly replaced by a shrieking scream.

We here also wish Guice, who was having a remarkable training camp, a fast recovery. But there are other running backs, such as Ronnie Brown and Edgerrin James, who were never the same after the injury.

In 2017, Washington was bit pretty hard by the injury bug.

The New England Patriots added incentive clauses to Tom Brady's contract this week. Tight end Manasseh Garner also suffered a torn ACL.
