The Arizona Republic - - SPORTS -

RICH­MOND, Va. – Wash­ing­ton Red­skins coach Jay Gruden doesn’t ex­pect to go look­ing for an­other run­ning back af­ter los­ing promis­ing rookie Der­rius Guice to a torn ACL in his left knee in the pre­sea­son opener.

“We have guys that are here and in play,” Gruden said, not­ing that the Red­skins drafted Guice be­cause he was the best player avail­able in the 59th spot, “not be­cause we weren’t sat­is­fied with the backs we have.”

The con­tenders as the No. 1 back now start with Rob Kel­ley and Sa­maje Per­ine.
