National Football League preseason quickly claims promising Redskins rookie

Rookie Derrius Guice's much-anticipated debut season in the National Football League is already over before it began.

Second-round running back Derrius Guice suffered a torn ACL in his preseason debut, Washington confirmed Friday, and he'll be placed on season-ending injured reserve.

On Guice's sixth carry of the night, he was tackled from behind and stayed on the ground. Injuries to Week 1 starter Rob Kelley and prolific third-down back Chris Thompson contributed to that, and Guice was expected to be a major part of solving the problem. An MRI showed much worse - a torn ACL. He had suffered a hyperextended knee (yes, the same knee) at LSU but opted against surgery, also per Rapoport.

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 injury ends Guice's season before it started. and puts the Redskins run game right back where it ended.

How an average 21-year-old stacks up against Kylie Jenner
Though her ponytail was no doubt the most statement-making part of Kylie's look, her makeup was equally as gorgeous. Kylie Jenner has 112 million followers on Instagram , but she wasn't old enough to drink until today.

This includes surpassing 300 passing yards six times while posting multiple touchdown passes 10 times along with holding a passer rating above 100 eight on eight occasions.

However, Kelley's fallout ensued in Year 2 of the young back's career.

In 2017, Washington was bit pretty hard by the injury bug.

Tom Brady, Quarterback, New England Patriots, and Founder of TB12, speaks at the Milken Institute 21st Global Conference in Beverly Hills, California, U.S., April 30, 2018. And losing a year of development with a running back pushes the Redskins' pursuit for a strong rushing attack another year down the road.
