Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice was officially diagnosed with an MCL sprain following an MRI. The good news is his ACL was in tact.
Guice won’t play Sunday at home against the Eagles and as we noted earlier, given his history, may not play for the rest of the year.
Guice was injured last Sunday against the Green Bay Packers, as he left the game and did not return. Prior to going out, he rushed for 42 yards on five attempts. He was replaced by Adrian Peterson, who will likely carry the load for as long as he’s out.
As previously noted, the young running back tore his meniscus in Week 1 and just returned on November 17. He did not play last season due to a torn ACL suffered in the preseason.
Guice, 22, was selected in the second-round of the 2018 NFL Draft by the Redskins. He’s in the second year of a four-year, $4,541,938 contract that included a $1,383,224 signing bonus.
