Washington Redskin’s rookie running back Derrius Guice, who was generating a ton of buzz during training camp for his energy and play, will miss his entire rookie season after an MRI showed a torn ACL, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.
Earlier today, it was reported that Guice was initially diagnosed with a sprained MCL, but would be undergoing an MRI to confirm the full extent of the injury, which unfortunately was not good.
It is sad news for a rookie that looked like he was going to be an exciting player for the Redskins this season.
Eagles’ Nick Foles Discusses Tom Brady’s Handshake Snub
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles still hasn’t received a congratulatory hand shake from New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who snubbed him following the Pats’ loss to the Eagles in Super Bowl LII.
While it is possible that Brady could congratulate Foles on Thursday night when the two teams meet for a preseason game, but even if it doesn’t happen, Foles is fine.
“No, I haven’t,” Foles said when asked if he has heard from Brady over the past few months, according to ESPN’s Tim McManus. “We both have a lot going on in our lives so, you know, in time.” Asked if he’d like Brady to engage him on Thursday, Foles made it clear that he does not view this as any kind of unresolved issue.
“It will happen when it happens. We practiced with the Patriots several years ago, and I got to stand there and talk to Tom for quite a bit. He’s a great guy. I have all the respect in the world for him,” said Foles.
“I think everyone’s making a really big deal out of this and it’s not a big deal at all. I’ve already talked to him before, he’s a guy I’ve always looked up to. You’ve got to admire someone who is probably the greatest ever and still going strong. I mean, even at his age he seems to get better and better. I’ve already had a conversation with him before when we practiced, so if we have one in the future, we’ll have one and it will be cool.”
“This is a new season, new people, new players,” Foles continued. “Obviously we wear the same logos as last year but we both have a new identity. This is the time of year where we grow together as teams, so that’s all I’m really focusing on.”
Broncos’ John Elway Says Team Could Look for New Backup Quarterback
Denver Broncos president John Elway isn’t too thrilled with the quarterback depth chart, despite the recent promotion of Chad Kelly to the #2 spot behind starter Case Keenum, and could be in the market for a new backup signal caller.
“I’m not going to tell you we’re definitely going to stand pat, but I’m not telling you we’re going (in) that direction, either,” Elway said, during an appearance on 103.5 The Fox (h/t Associated Press).
Kelly’s recent performance, in which he threw for 177 yards and two touchdowns in the preseason opener against the Minnesota Vikings, has seen him leapfrog former 2016 1st round pick Paxton Lynch on the depth chart.
“We’ve got to have confidence that that guy that’s going to be the backup can play and win football games,” Elway said. “And so that’s why we’re still in that process of trying to see if we’ve got that guy behind Case.
“Even though Chad played very well on Saturday night—we’ll see how he does this week—but if something were to happen to Case, can he come in and continue to win football games for us?” Elway said. “That’s the big part of the evaluation process and that’s still going on.”
Panthers Sign Kiante Anderson
Anderson played for East Carolina last season and compiled 54 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks and two forced fumbles over 18 appearances the last two years. Anderson is expected to provide depth along the defensive line.
In a corresponding move, the Panthers announced that they have waived defensive tackle Karter Schult.
