Cards’ Week 1 opponent Washington loses expected starting RB Guice

Guice, a second-round rookie, suffered the injury during Week 1 of the preseason against the New England Patriots. But he underwent an MRI on Friday morning where the more serious injury was discovered.

One game into the preseason - a period where results "don't matter", the Redskins have already suffered a huge loss.

Several scouts had questioned Guice's durability going into the draft. Washington will now rely on Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine to be their primary backs, while Chris Thompson will continue his role as a third-down specialist.

Instead, Guice's National Football League career starts with a medical redshirt.

The Redskins' sigh of relief was quickly replaced by a shrieking scream.

We know Chris Thompson figures to be a big part of the backfield workforce, but he's also coming off a season-ending injury previous year with a fractured right fibula Other candidates include Byron Marshall or Kapri Bibbs, who have some big-play ability. Basically they'll have a running downs back and a passing downs back.

In a statement, the Redskins said Guice was expected to make a full recovery and looked forward to playing in 2019.

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are near an incentive-laden adjustment to his 2018 contract that lifts the five-time Super Bowl champion's compensation toward current market value at the quarterback position.

The team also announced that tight end Manasseh Garner will miss the season with an ACL injury sustained in Thursday night's game.
