Redskins rookie RB Guice to miss season with torn ACL

The injury happened after a 34-yard run, which was negated by a penalty, near the end of the first quarter of Washington's 26-17 loss to the New England Patriots.

Washington took Guice with the 59th overall pick after the running back fell on draft night over concerns about his maturity.

Early indications were that Guice might have suffered a strained MCL, saying after the game that he "felt fine". He exited the game after the tackle and was evaluated by the team's medical staff, and though he was standing on the sidelines after the injury, Friday's MRI didn't bear any positive news.

Guice hyperextended his left knee at LSU last season but was held out of only one game. Kelley, a 2016 undrafted free agent who began last season as the starter, has gone from "Fat Rob" to "Fit Rob" and should now be considered the front-runner.

Would the Note 9 be a good match for your business? As with the Pixel, the Note won't be saving a version without the tweaks. Samsung lists a number of phones from Samsung , LG, Apple , and Google that they'll accept for hundreds of dollars off.

Washington now has far less talent at the position.

Before his injury, Guice was having a strong training camp, taking snaps with the first unit and displaying the same "violent" running style that he was known for. Every team has to deal with injuries throughout the season, so there's plenty of time to adjust and find players who will emerge to fill the void.

Contrast that with Rob Gronkowski's restructured deal from previous year, which allowed the tight end to earn an extra $5.5 million by reaching certain totals in one of three statistical categories or by securing first-team All-Pro honors. But can he run with the power and explosiveness that Guice was expected to bring?
