Renowned Dr. James Andrews will perform the procedure. Footballguys View: Guice is going to miss his rookie year.

Guice was lost for the season to a torn ACL during the team’s first preseason game. And while running backs like Thompson posted heartfelt messages on social media about it, the in-person interviews revealed a lot more.

Thompson, for example, broke down:

<![CDATA[Jay Gruden claims Redskins won't sign free agent RB after Derrius Guice injury]]> Derrius Guice for the season to a torn ACL isn’t going to be easy.

But head coach Jay Gruden doesn’t sound worried.

When asked about the situation and if the Redskins might look to free agency, Gruden had the following to say, per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk:

“We have guys in here [that can] play, we drafted Derrius because he’s the best player we thought at the time of the draft. We thought he could really help our football team not because we weren’t satisfied with the backs we had. We thought he would be a heck of a player for us. So, with Rob [Kelley] and Samaje [Perine], and what Byron [Marshall] did the other night, the flashes he showed off and obviously Chris Thompson, Kapri Bibbs had a couple big hits. I think we are pretty good at the running back spot.]]> 5269727 Sun, 12 Aug 2018 9:42:01 EDT Redskins Wire

Guice tore his ACL during Week 1 of the preseason against the New England Patriots, meaning he’ll miss his rookie season. Making the blow worse was the fact it was initially thought he had only suffered a sprain.

Thompson was the first of many to show support, which Guice responded to on Twitter:

That’s why you’re my favorite person]]> 5269062 Sat, 11 Aug 2018 12:42:01 EDT Redskins Wire

FF Today's Take: Ouch. The Redskins rookie running back was inline for a starting role this season. The hope was that Guice suffered only a sprained MCL in last night's pre-season game but he will now miss the entire 2018 season. This is the same knee Guice injured (hyperextension) at LSU. Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley are next up on the depth chart with Chris Thompson filling his usual pass-catching role.]]> 5268201 Fri, 10 Aug 2018 15:15:01 EDT
