Guice injury means chance for the other Redskins’ RBs
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.
