Derrius Guice, Chris Thompson thrilled to have Adrian Peterson back in the saddle

After the news broke Wednesday that the Redskins and future Hall of Fame running back Adrian Peterson had agreed to a two-year contract extension, Peterson's teammates in the backfield took to Twitter to congratulate him on his new deal.

Thompson, who signed an extension with the club prior to the 2017 campaign, is glad to have Peterson back with the team.

Derrius Guice, who missed his entire 2018 rookie season after recovering from an ACL tear in the preseason, has been rehabbing and is ready to get to work with the longtime veteran.

Redskins players reacted just like you on Twitter to shocking Odell Beckham trade to Browns

NFL Twitter exploded Tuesday as the news broke the Giants had traded Odell Beckham to the Browns. And several Redskins players got in on the fun to celebrate Beckham leaving the NFC East.

Derrius Guice, just like everyone else, was SHOCKED. 

Meanwhile, Chris Thompson thinks we're all living in a video game universe now. 

And Josh Norman took the opportunity to take yet another shot at Giants GM Dave Gettleman, for whom Norman played during his time with the Panthers. 

If you can't tell, the Redskins are very excited that they don't have to face Beckham twice a year anymore.

Derrius Guice provides an update on his rehab and says he's still 'strong as an ox'

Derrius Guice provides an update on his rehab and says he's still 'strong as an ox'

It has been a little more than six months since Derrius Guice's rookie season ended on his sixth carry of the Redskins' preseason opener. So, how's the running back's rehab from his torn ACL going?

Well, conveniently enough, Guice chronicled his comeback in a "Derrius Diary" post on his team's website, giving a first person account of how his offseason is progressing.

In that blog, No. 29 first explained how the infections that stemmed from his surgery — infections that set him back two months — really made him question why he was facing so much adversity so early into his career.

"I had to play catch-up, so I had to work a lot harder and spend a lot more hours here, getting rehab in the weight room, catching up on my running and stuff," Guice said. "It was tough, when I already started over in August, and then I had to start over again in December. It was kind of like, what’s going on?"

Once he got past those troubles, though, the 'Skins' 2018 second-rounder has largely been a fixture at the franchise's Ashburn facility. That constant work has helped him get back to full strength in his arms and put him in a place where he's able to sprint at 100-percent in a straight line.

Guice wrote that he's not doing any lateral movements at full speed yet and he still wants to keep building up his legs, but with more than five months until training camp, he's got the time to do so. 

"We're right there," he said. "We just take it week to week. I’m still strong as an ox. We’re getting it back."
