The injury bug seems out to get Redskins running back Derrius Guice.

Prior to Week 1, the second-year pro was named the Redskins starting running back, working all the way back from a ruptured ACL that cost him his rookie season. But in his NFL debut, a 32-27 loss to the Eagles, Guice injured the meniscus in his non-ACL knee.

Reports came out earlier this week that Guice would miss some time, but the severity of the injury was still uncertain. Things came to fruition on Thursday, when NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Guice underwent surgery to trim the injured meniscus and will be out indefinitely.

Although the injury bug has bitten Guice a lot more than others, the running back insists that no one should feel bad for him.

Guice is an active social media user and has taken to Twitter several times over his career to deal with issues like these. But in wake of his latest injury, he's stayed as positive as possible.

With Guice sidelined, veteran Adrian Peterson will once again be the starting running back. While the seven-time Pro Bowler is excited to play again, arguably nobody feels for Guice more than him.


Unlike his ACL injury from a year ago, Guice is expected to return to the Redskins this season.
