National Football League preseason quickly claims promising Redskins rookie

Garrett Campbell  WASHINGTON REDSKINS

He was initially reported to have been diagnosed with an MCL sprain.

The Redskins said Guice, who was taken in the second round of the National Football League draft out of LSU, was expected to make a full recovery and was looking forward to playing in 2019. He exited the game after the tackle and was evaluated by the team's medical staff, and though he was standing on the sidelines after the injury, Friday's MRI didn't bear any positive news. He played sparingly previous year, and likely won't see his role increase that much as a result of Guice's injury.

Schefter also mentioned Gronkowski's restructure from last season. Chris Thompson, who's still rehabbing a fractured fibula that ended his 2017 season last November, was always going to be the team's primary receiving back, a role that should net him somewhere in the neighborhood of 80 targets. Bibbs, meanwhile, got all four of his carries in the second half, racking up 48 yards.

The 41-year-old's current deal has two years worth $41 million left that runs through the 2019 campaign, which has left the door open to what the Patriots will do after this upcoming season as he will be in his final year.

The rest of the running back depth chart leaves much to be desired.

In Weeks 11-17, Perine averaged 2.65 yards after contact per attempt, ranking 12th among running backs with at least 100 attempts in said span.
