Fantasy fallout: Derrius Guice will miss rookie season due to tore ACL

Final wet prep for preseason opener Tom Brady’s contract: Patriots add $5M in new incentives

The Washington Redskins announced Friday that rookie running back Derrius Guice tore his ACL in Thursday's preseason opener against the New England Patriots and will miss the entire 2018 season.

Guice was expected to be the Redskins' starter after they selected him 59th overall in the draft. The LSU product was considered a first-round prospect and went late in the second.

The injury is devastating news to the Redskins, who drafted Guice to fix their 28th-ranked run offense from 2017.

Brady, the reigning NFL MVP, is signed through the 2019 season.

Israel and Hamas agree on truce to end Gaza flare-up
In Sderot, the Israeli city near the Gaza Strip, a gaping hole could be seen in front of a small, three-storey building. Israelis and Palestinians should unite against the deadly threat of Hamas, said U.S.

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

Chris Thompson tweeted that he "had a tough time (trying to) hold back the tears" when he learned about the injury. ACL tears typically take at least six months to recover from and the track record of being the same player has been mixed. He added, "We had something great going in our room but you know the squad got you every step of the way bro".

With the 2018 season rapidly approaching, and with Tom Brady entering his age 41 season, the quarterback and the team are close to settling some changes to his contract. "Sorry, I don't", the coach predictably responded. "So, control what you can control". But there are other running backs, such as Ronnie Brown and Edgerrin James, who were never the same after the injury.
