Redskins’ Derrius Guice, Colt McCoy will be ready for training camp
Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden says that running back Derrius Guice and quarterback Colt McCoy will be ready for the start of training camp, according to Michael Phillips of The Richmond Times-Dispatch.
Guice has not practiced since tearing his ACL in his first preseason game last year.
The 22-year-old, who played his collegiate football at LSU, was originally selected by the Redskins in the second round (59th pick overall) of the 2018 NFL Draft.
Guice had suffered a hamstring injury earlier this offseason and had been listed as questionable for the start of training camp as a result, but apparently, he is now good to go.
As for McCoy, the signal-caller broke his leg back in December and underwent surgery immediately. However, McCoy needed a second procedure on his leg back in March.
Now, McCoy will be available to fight for the Redskins’ starting quarterback job in a group that includes fellow veteran Case Keenum and rookie Dwayne Haskins.
McCoy has been with the Redskins since 2014, and over that time, he has made six starts.
The 32-year-old, who played his collegiate football at the University of Texas, was selected by the Cleveland Browns in the third round (85th pick overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft.
He spent the first three years of his career with the Browns, making 21 starts. He then landed with the San Francisco 49ers for one year before linking up with the Redskins.
Washington won seven games this past year and has made just two playoff appearances since 2008.
