Although the Redskins took a 19-9 loss on Thursday night to the Vikings, some good news has come to light. The 2018 second round draft pick Derrius Guice has returned to the practice field for the first time since tearing his meniscus after his team’s Week 1 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Interim Head Coach Bill Callahan confirmed Guice’s return to the field in a press conference after Monday’s practice.

The second-year running back was placed on Injury Reserve before the Redskins’ Week 2 matchup against the Cowboys. As a result, Guice will not be able to make his post-injury debut until after eight weeks since then. This means the running back will be set to make a return against the New York Jets in Week 11.
According to Callahan, it is likely that Guice will be cleared by the time his eight weeks on Injury Reserve is up. The coach stated Monday, “It’ll be two weeks before he gets going. Probably after the bye he’ll be ready to go for the Jet game.”
Before his injury, Guice was listed as the first running back on the depth chart. The Redskins should be thrilled to see him returning soon.
