What we didn’t know? Guice suffered a major setback due to an infection.

Here are the details from Kareem Copeland of the Washington Post:

He then faced significant setbacks in his recovery. Guice developed an infection after the surgery that lasted two months and required three additional procedures — which Guice referred to as “flushes” — to address the infected tissue, prompting seven weeks of heavy rounds of antibiotics through a catheter in his arm. There was a period of getting IVs three times a day, for three hours. His knee would swell up, giving him a burning sensation, and he came down with flulike symptoms when the infection was first detected and an orange, cloudy fluid needed to be drained from the joint]]> 5386450 Thu, 13 Dec 2018 9:57:01 EDT Redskins Wire

Despite missing the entirety of his rookie year, Guice remains in high spirits and he believes that next season, he will come back better than ever.

From Kareem Copeland of the Washington Post:

“I’m pretty mentally strong, so this isn’t beating me up,” Guice said. “I always try to look at the positives of things. It’s another year, I can get faster, bigger, stronger, learn the system more. Just be around the guys more.]]> 5386206 Wed, 12 Dec 2018 23:27:01 EDT Redskins Wire
<![CDATA[Dealing with major recovery setback]]> Guice (knee) developed an infection after his mid-August surgery to repair a torn ACL, leading to three additional procedures and a seven-week course of intravenous antibiotics, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

The infection delayed his rehab process and kept him away from the Redskins' facility all season, but Guice is finally making progress and still hopes to be available for OTAs in May/June. Even if his optimistic outlook doesn't come to pass, the rookie running back has some margin for error due to the timing of his ACL tear (Aug. 9). He'll be 13 months removed from the initial injury by the time Week 1 of the 2019 season rolls around. Guice's progress is sure to be a major story during the offseason, as his Week 1 availability can no longer be taken for granted.

Foster will remain on the commissioner exempt list until the league decides if they will suspend him or not. While on the commissioner exempt list, Foster can’t play or practice but he can workout using team facilities as Guice’s photo shows]]> 5380362 Thu, 06 Dec 2018 18:21:02 EDT Redskins Wire
