National Football League preseason quickly claims promising Redskins rookie

Garrett Campbell  WASHINGTON REDSKINS

A star rookie running back reportedly suffered a knee injury during the first half of a preseason game on Thursday night. Quarterbacks that are not protected or given time to operate inside the pocket usually suffer numerous injuries during the grind of an National Football League season.

Redskins rookie running back Derrius Guice suffered a torn ACL in Thursday's game against the New England Patriots and will miss the 2018 season, the team announced Friday. He was initially reported to have been diagnosed with an MCL sprain.

Guice, a second-round pick out of LSU, was injured on a run play in the first quarter.

Guice went down awkwardly after breaking off an impressive run. Chris Thompson, who's still rehabbing a fractured fibula that ended his 2017 season last November, was always going to be the team's primary receiving back, a role that should net him somewhere in the neighborhood of 80 targets.

Her first was a space shuttle mission that launched in 2007, and the second was a Soyuz-launched mission in 2012. Since then, every nation on Earth has relied on Russian Federation to get to the International Space Station.

Guice hyperextended his left knee at LSU last season but was held out of only one game. Guice and the Redskins pushed back against those claims - and the 21-year-old quickly fit in with teammates and became a fan favorite. Guice carried the ball six times for 19 yards on 10 snaps and limped off the field on his final touch.

We know Chris Thompson figures to be a big part of the backfield workforce, but he's also coming off a season-ending injury a year ago with a fractured right fibula Other candidates include Byron Marshall or Kapri Bibbs, who have some big-play ability. For what it's worth, Adam Schefter of ESPN, during a recent appearance on The Kirk & Callahan Show, shared further details on the nature of the assembly of three of the Patriots' cornerstones, saying that they touched on the subject of limiting Brady's pass attempts and probably even talked about Brady's trainer, Alex Guerrero (h/t Ryan Hannable of WEEI Radio Network).

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are near an incentive-laden adjustment to the quarterback's 2018 contract. Both players are expected to make a full recovery and are looking forward to playing in 2019.
