MRI reveals Derrius Guice has a torn ACL, to miss entire rookie season

MRI reveals Derrius Guice has a torn ACL, to miss entire rookie season

Redskins rookie running back Derrius Guice exited the team's preseason-opening loss to the Patriots on Thursday night with an apparent knee injury.

The initial diagnosis of the injury was an MCL sprain, although Guice downplayed the severity following the game. However, the former LSU star underwent an MRI on Friday and the results revealed Guice has a torn ACL in his left knee, the team confirmed. 

Guice injured his left knee during an awkward landing following his most impressive run of the night — albeit one that would be called back for a holding penalty.

Guice finished his preseason debut with 19 yards on six carries. 

The team released a statement announcing that Guice, as well as tight end Manasseh Garner, will miss the entire season.

"RB Derrius Guice and TE Manasseh Garner will miss the 2018 season due to ACL injuries sustained from last night's preseason game at the New England. Both players are expected to make a full recovery and are looking forward to playing in 2019.”

With Guice's season coming to an end before it even began, Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine are expected to take a bulk of the load, with Chris Thompson serving as the change-of-pace back once he fully recovers from his 2017 season-ending injury.

    Former Redskin Josh Doctson signs with New York Jets

    Former Redskin Josh Doctson signs with New York Jets

    Former Redskins' wideout Josh Doctson has found another home, again. 

    Doctson, 27, signed with the New York Jets the team announced Saturday morning via twitter. 

    Washington selected Doctson with their 22nd pick in the 2016 NFL draft after he put up monster numbers at Texas Christian University. However, his collegiate success never quite translated to the professional level. During his three seasons in D.C. he played 33 games, recorded 81 receptions for a total of 1,100 yards and 8 touchdowns.

    After Washinton released Doctson last September he joined the Minnesota Vikings, but injuries held him to only one appearance and no catches.

    Josh Hart tries to recruit Stefon Diggs to Redskins amidst trade rumors

    Josh Hart tries to recruit Stefon Diggs to Redskins amidst trade rumors

    New Orleans Pelican Josh Hart tried to recruit Stefon Diggs in a twitter exchange Thursday surrounding Jordan Reed’s release from the Redskins.

    Reed was released on Thursday after six seasons and seven years on the team.

    In a tweet commemorating Reed’s accomplishments, the Redskins called him “one of the best in franchise history” and thanked him for his years on the team.

    Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins showed his disappointment in Reed’s release by quoting the tweet with a crying emoji. Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs shared similar feelings by responding to the quote saying “not my dog j reed…”.

    Diggs is a Maryland native but has been with the Vikings since he was drafted in the 2015 NFL Draft in the fifth round.

    In response to this exchange, Hart chimed in and pleaded with him to “Come on home bro #HTTR”.  Hart, a D.C. native and long-time Redskins fan, is not the only one who has been looking to help the Redskins with their player recruitment.

    Haskins has also made recruiting for the Redskins a habit this season, engaging with players like Ron Rivera and Antonio Brown through social media regarding coming to play in DC.

    Hart's interaction with Diggs is particularly notable considering that his recent social media has left Vikings fans wondering what his next moves are. In addition to cryptic tweets potentially linked to his dissatisfaction with his team, Diggs also took down all of his Instagram pictures which feature him in a Vikings uniform.

    Could Diggs be heading to the Redskins? If Hart has any say in the matter, maybe.
