Redskins’ Derrius Guice Out Indefinitely

Redskins running back Derrius Guice will be out indefinitely thanks to his most recent knee injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network tweets. The silver lining is that the injury is not on the same knee that cost Guice his entire rookie season. 

Guice had surgery on Thursday morning to repair his torn meniscus. Afterwards, Guice met with Dr. James to assess his recovery plans. In the meantime, Guice’s timetable for return remains murky. The belief, for now, is that he will miss somewhere between one month and six weeks of action.

Adrian Peterson wasn’t active for the Redskins’ season opener, but he is expected to take over Guice’s workload in the interim. The Redskins also have Chris Thompson on hand, though Thompson would probably be deployed as more of a pass-catcher out of the backfield.

    AP is literally there to take the hard hits so Guice can stay healthy. And Gruden makes him inactive and Guice gets hurt. Genius. Obviously Jon is the better Gruden

  2. Guice has fragile knees. He’s been injured every which way in his knees. He’s a power runner, “runs angry”, so there’s no way Guice can manage more than a couple of seasons in the NFL. Jay Gruden offending Adrian Peterson and virtually throwing him on the scrap heap, after Peterson received the offensive MVP internal award on the Redskins is a portrait of leadership incompetence.

    People complain about the owner and the GM of the Redskins, but apparently Jay Gruden is no better.

    As a skins fan, Jay Gruden has ruined the skins. He’ll be out this season

    I see a coordinator gig in Jay’s future, or broadcasting skits with Frank as Jon.
