Redskins rookie RB Guice out for season

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Washington Redskins rookie running back Derrius Guice is out for the season after tearing the ACL in his left knee.

Guice was injured in Washington’s preseason opener at New England on Thursday night. The team announced the prognosis Friday following an MRI, saying Guice should make a full recovery and be ready to play in 2019.

Guice was expected to be the Redskins’ starter after they selected him 59th overall in the draft. The LSU product was considered a first-round prospect and went late in the second.

In camp, Guice had been splitting first-team carries with Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine.
