Redskins RB Derrius Guice out for season with torn ACL

Rookie Derrius Guice's much-anticipated debut season in the National Football League is already over before it began.

Washington Redskins rookie running back Derrius Guice is out for the season after tearing the ACL in his left knee, a significant blow to the ground game.

Selected in the second round of this year's draft, former LSU standout Guice went down awkwardly as he was tackled from behind on an impressive 34-yard scamper negated by a holding penalty. But he underwent an MRI on Friday morning where the more serious injury was discovered. That's certainly possible, considering Brady was the NFL's MVP last season, but he's finished top-five in all five of those categories simultaneously just three times in his 18-year career (2007, 2011 and 2017).

The injury ends Guice's season before it started. and puts the Redskins run game right back where it ended.

Kelley has earned praise from Jay Gruden, and Perine is said to be looking better than he did last season, when he averaged 3.4 yards per carry and didn't factor much into the receiving game.

Kelley, a 6-foot, 229-pound thumper of a back enjoyed quite the coming-out party as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2016.

In 2017, Washington was bit pretty hard by the injury bug. Basically they'll have a running downs back and a passing downs back.
