Derrius Guice: No reason to freak out over my hamstring

Washington running back Derrius Guice is downplaying the hamstring injury that may cause him to miss the start of training camp.

When a fan on Twitter told Guice that a lot of people are freaking out, Guice replied, “For no reason.”

In another tweet, Guice indicated that reports about his health are overstating the concern.

“I don’t listen to the noise. I know what’s going on with me,” Guice wrote.

Guice was chosen in the second round of last year’s draft but suffered a season-ending knee injury in the preseason. Washington is hoping to have him at 100 percent by the time the season starts, even if he’s not 100 percent healthy at the start of camp.

  1. This guy was a stud running back at LSU. Some think he is better than Fournette. Both seem to be injured a lot. Probably because they were used some much in college.

  2. Welcome to Washington, home of the worst fans…..Every fan here is a professional GM

  3. The worn out in College trope is yet another example of turning a blind eye to historical evidence. The Pro Football HoF is filled with stud RB who piled on the carries in College and then did the same in the NFL as they went on to successful,indeed,HoF careers. While we will likely never see another RB in the HoF due to the Rule changes so overtly favoring the Passing game, they were once the marquee players in the NFL’s glory days.And they all got the ball.Repeatedly.

  4. Not surprised by this injury. You see it all the time when an athlete injures something. Just glad it’s only a hammy and not something major. Need him to stay healthy along with the rest of the team.

  5. Yeah, because everyone knows how important a healthy hamstring is when it comes to tossing back some brews.

    He was at the bar at Bar Louie Friday night, so it couldn’t have been that bad.
