Tom Brady close to signing contract adjustment with New England Patriots

Redskins make roster moves ahead of first preseason game

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

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 carried the ball six times for 19 yards on 10 snaps and limped off the field on his final touch. 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.

Brady's current contract runs through the 2019 season, and Schefter's report did not indicate that current talks would include an extension.

For fantasy players who already drafted Guice, it might feel like your season is already over. He averaged an impressive 2.84 yards after contact per attempt and forced 35 missed tackles across 168 carries, ranking T-10th and 13th, respectively, among running backs with 100-plus carries that season.

Contrast that with Rob Gronkowski's restructured deal from past year, which allowed the tight end to earn an extra $5.5 million by reaching certain totals in one of three statistical categories or by securing first-team All-Pro honors.

In 2017, Washington was bit pretty hard by the injury bug. Of course, Kelley's unexpected regression opened the door for then rookie running back Perine to take on an increased role, and he didn't fail to impress down the stretch.
