Derrius Guice underwent an MRI on his knee on Monday morning. The Washington Redskins’ runningback suffered a torn ACL during his preseason debut for the team in 2018.
Sources: #Redskins RB Derrius Guice had an MRI this morning on the other, non-ACL knee and he’s likely to miss some time. The hope is he does not need surgery, but the team is doing a full evaluation. He gained 18 yards on 10 carries, looking like he wasn’t himself.

Multiple NFL sources have cited that the injury isn’t major, but Guice will definitely miss time. This likely means that Adrian Peterson will be active for Week 2, after he was held out of the Redskins’ season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles. Peterson led Washington with 1,000+ yards rushing in 2018, whereas Guice has just 18 yards in his NFL career.
