Redskins Put Guice on IR for 2nd Time This Season

Derrius Guice

The Washington Redskins on Tuesday placed Derrius Guice on injured reserve for the remainder of the 2019 season. Reporters broke the news of a sprained MCL Tuesday morning after MRI results came back.

Guice, a second-year running back out of LSU, notably tore his left ACL in the 2018 preseason. He also injured his right knee in Week 1 this season against the Philadelphia Eagles: his initial IR placement.

This is the third time in Guice’s NFL career he’s been placed on injured reserve.

Washington Forced to Turn to the Hall-of-Famer

In Guice’s absence, the Redskins will need Adrian Peterson more than ever. The future Hall-of-Famer currently leads the team in rushing yards, rushing attempts and rushing touchdowns. Guice, however, leads the team in yards per carry with a staggering number of 5.8.

Next to Peterson will be Wendell Smallwood, a passing down-back the Redskins signed from the Eagles earlier this season.

According to, Washington ranks 20th in rushing offense.
