The Washington Redskins were hoping that second-round Derrius Guice would have a big role in the offensive attack this season. After just one preseason game, his season is over.
Guice suffered a torn ACL in Thursday night’s game against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium. He will have surgery in the near future.
His injury was initially diagnosed as an MCL sprain. Then, it was later changed, to a torn ACL.
Samaje Perine appeared in 16 games last season with eight starts. He was the team’s leading starter with 175 carries for 603 yards and a touchdown.
Outside of Perine, there was little offense from the other backs. In fact, Perine had 309 more yards than his nearest back in Chris Thompson, who had 294 rushing yards.
The past two seasons, while playing in the Southeastern Conference with the LSU Tigers, he had 2,638 yards.
As a junior, he had 237 carries for 1,251 rushing yards with 11 touchdowns in 12 games as the Tigers featured back. He also had 18 receptions for 124 yards and two touchdowns.
He had a season-high 276 yards on 22 carries against the Ole Miss Rebels on October 21st, 2017. He had a career-high 285 yards on 37 carries against the Texas A&M Aggies on November 24th, 2016.
During the 2016 season, he filled in for teammate Leonard Fournette when he was hampered with injuries. He had 183 carries for 1,387 yards with 15 touchdowns in 12 games. He also had nine touchdowns for 106 yards and a touchdown.
As a freshman in 2015, he had 51 carries for 436 yards and three touchdowns in 11 games.
