Redskins rookie RB Guice to miss season with torn ACL

Redskins make roster moves ahead of first preseason game

The initial thought was a sprained MCL, suggesting he'd miss a few weeks.

Chris Thompson tweeted that he "had a tough time (trying to) hold back the tears" when he learned about the injury.

Redskins PR confirmed that Guice was being examined for a knee issue.

"God never makes mistakes", Guice tweeted.

On Guice's sixth carry of the night, he was tackled from behind and stayed on the ground. 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".

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. Now, it's wide open after Guice's season-ending injury. An MRI taken Friday revealed that Guice tore his ACL, knocking him out for the entire 2018 season.

In 2012, Adrian Peterson notably returned from the injury and had a career-high 2,097 yards en route to being named the league's MVP.

Injuries are one of the worst parts of sports. He played sparingly past year, and likely won't see his role increase that much as a result of Guice's injury. Payne has made progress and is expected to return soon.

The New England Patriots will add $5 million in performance-based incentives to quarterback Tom Brady's contract by this weekend, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Thursday.
