Redskins rookie RB Guice (ACL) out for season

Washington Redskins rookie running back Derrius Guice tore his ACL and is out for the season, the team announced on Friday.

Guice injured his left knee at the end of a first-quarter run in Thursday’s preseason opener against the New England Patriots.

A second-round draft choice out of LSU, Guice had 19 yards on six carries before leaving the game. He hung around the locker room with teammates after the Redskins’ 26-17 loss, sucking on a lollipop at his locker as he scrolled through his phone.

He later walked from the locker room to the team buses, and there was a noticeable stiffness in his stride.

Guice sprained his left knee at LSU last season, but missed only one game. He has made a quick first impression on his Redskins teammates, including quarterback Colt McCoy, who said Guice has been “fun to watch” and is a “great player.”

While the Redskins have been rotating their running backs in training camp, coaches have been pleased with Guice’s development, and teammates anticipated him being the opening-game starter.
