Final wet prep for preseason opener

Final wet prep for preseason opener

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".

Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith (11) hands the ball off to Redskins running back Derrius Guice (29) during drills on day three of Redskins training camp at Washington Redskins Bon Secours Training Center.

The Redskins said Guice, who was taken in the second round of the National Football League draft out of LSU, was expected to make a full recovery and was looking forward to playing in 2019.

The injury ends Guice's season before it started. and puts the Redskins run game right back where it ended. Now there's a fresh wound - and a massive one - early in the 2018 season.

Benjamin eventually requested a trade and landed in Buffalo in the middle of last season for draft picks. Charlotte NBC News anchor Nick Carboni posted Benjamin's ripping of Newton on Twitter.

Now, the Skins will move forward with Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley, as well as pass-catching threat Chris Thompson, who is still recovering from a fractured fibula he suffered on November 19. ACL tears typically take at least six months to recover from and the track record of being the same player has been mixed.

Still, Guice's injury continues the streak of bad luck for the organization. Washington had 23 players on injured reserve.

Brady, 41, would likely have to stay healthy for a full season to earn the full $5 million in performance bonuses. Payne has made progress and is expected to return soon.

Guice, a second-round rookie, suffered the injury during Week 1 of the preseason against the New England Patriots.
