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".

The Redskins selected the 21-year old running back with the 59th overall pick in the 2018 Draft and he was due to play a major role in Washington's backfield this season. Liz Loza can relate. Rob Kelley, Samaje Perine and Kapri Bibbs will spend the rest of the preseason jockeying for position, though Kelley already appears to have a lead over the other two.

Washington will open up the season on the road in Arizona on September 9. Some guys need modification for one reason or another.

Rookie Derrius Guice's much-anticipated debut season in the National Football League is already over before it began. They're not expecting him to come here and have a 500-yard season.

We know Chris Thompson figures to be a big part of the backfield workforce, but he's also coming off a season-ending injury a year ago with a fractured right fibula Other candidates include Byron Marshall or Kapri Bibbs, who have some big-play ability. "That's a balance we talk about every day". He played all 16 games last season and earned NFL MVP honors after tossing 4,577 passing yards and 32 touchdowns. "So, control what you can control".

In addition to Guice, the team says tight end Manasseh Garner, a long shot to make the roster, is out for the season with an ACL injury.
