Derrius Guice runs well in return to game action

Washington running back Derrius Guice waited more than a year to get back into a game after tearing his ACL in last summer’s preseason opener and he showed some of the skills that led to high hopes for the back’s contributions prior to the injury.

Guice showed patience and power while running the ball six times and catching a pass over Washington’s first two possessions on Thursday night.

Guice opened the game by cutting back, finding some daylight and darting forward for seven yards. He then used a stiff arm to avoid a tackle by Isaiah Oliver on his way to gaining six yards on a run around left end.

Guice remained in the game for the first four offensive possessions and there was no sign that the knee injury has sapped him of the ability to contribute to the offense in 2019, which makes the return to game action a successful one for the 2018 second-round pick.

  1. Please stay healthy… please take healthy… please stay healthy for the sake of my wife’s beloved Redskins. I’m a Brady/Pats fan, but she’s a lifelong Skins loyalist. I feel badly for her every year thanks to Allen and Snyder. Hard to have any faith in her team with THAT ownership and front office, and now they are relying on a couple of former Buckeyes. God help her….

  2. Glad to hear he has healed. Wish him nothing but good health!

    Fantasy note: difficult QB situation & weaker offensive line & AP stealing carries makes this guy difficult to draft.
