Derrius Guice tweaks hamstring, may miss start of training camp


The injury bug has officially bit the Redskins once again as running back Derrius Guice tweaked his hamstring and is now questionable for the start of training camp.

The Redskins already lost middle linebacker Rueben Foster to a torn ACL during OTAs late in the spring.

Guice already missed the entirety of last season after tearing his ACL during his debut in the preseason. Guice was picked in the second round in 2018 but many scouts believed he was first round talent but scared NFL teams with his behavior off the field.

Guice’s talent can’t be denied due to the fact that he forced 44 missed tackles and gained 750 yards after contact in his last two seasons at LSU.

In three seasons at LSU, Guice rushes for 3,074 yards and scored 29 touchdowns. In total, Guice holds three school records and is ranked in the Top 10 in LSU history in 28 categories.

Luckily, the Redskins have depth at the running back position if Guice were to miss an extended period of time. The Redskins brought back Adrian Peterson on a two-year deal and Chris Thompson returns from injury.
