Report: Redskins RB Derrius Guice could miss start of training camp with hamstring injury
Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice had high hopes for a return from his torn ACL by training camp this offseason. Unfortunately, it appears he has suffered a bit of a setback.
According to Erin Hawksworth of 106.7 The Fan, Guice could potentially miss training camp after suffering a hamstring injury:
Redskins running back Derrius Guice suffered a hamstring injury and is questionable for the start of training camp, according to two sources.
This is certainly an unfortunate setback for Guice. Washington had high hopes for the former LSU star when they took him in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft before suffering the torn ACL. Head coach Jay Gruden indicated that he had been making solid progress and was poised for a return for training camp, however, that very well may no longer be the case.
The Redskins have since made moves to ensure that their backfield is stocked with enough talent for the time being. Not only are they welcoming back some familiar faces in Adrian Peterson, Samajae Perine, and Chris Thompson, they also managed to add former Stanford standout Bryce Love to the mix this year.
It is safe to say that Guice will have plenty of competition for touches once he is able to make his return. As a result, his focus should be on getting as healthy as possible by the time the 2019 NFL season rolls around. It will be interesting to see how the pecking order shakes out if Guice continues to deal with injuries moving forward.
