Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice will undergo an MRI on Friday after receiving an initial diagnosis of a sprained MCL, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.

Guice said that he suffered a hyperextended left knee at the end of a first-quarter run in Thursday’s preseason opener against the New England Patriots, adding that he “felt good” and could “walk fine” and that “all is well” following the game.

“At the back end of the play, when I was stiff-arming [a defender], my feet just kind of planted weirdly on the turf and my knee just hyperextended a little bit,” Guice said, according to ESPN’s Mike Reiss. “It’s fine.”

“He popped a long run and unfortunately got a leg tangled up in the turf,” Redskins coach Jay Gruden said. “Just one of those unlucky plays that unfortunately happens. Hopefully it’s nothing. … We’ll find out [Friday].”

Cowboys Hoping Tavon Austin Can Become a Complete Receiver

The Dallas Cowboys are hopeful that a change of scenery will be the key to helping Tavon Austin become a complete receiver, instead of the plug-and-play type he was during his five seasons in with the Los Angeles Rams.

Cowboys’ quarterback Dak Prescott is certainly hopeful that Austin can put it all together, as he could give the signal caller a dangerous weapon to utilize moving forward, and Austin has already impressed Prescott so far, naming him as the receiver who has impressed him the most.

“I’d say Tavon for the simple fact, in the other place he was, I didn’t know he was as good of a receiver as he was and could run routes as well as he does, and catch the ball every single time,” Prescott said, according to the Dallas Star-Telegram. “For me, from that standpoint, he’s not just a gadget, gadget guy. You don’t have to run him on speed sweeps and all that steps opens up the offense and you can use him there as well. He’s a guy you can put out there, inside, outside and trust he’s going to get open.”

Austin speed has always been intriguing, but he has yet to put it all together in his career thus far.

Chicago Bears linebacker Leonard Floyd may have been hampered by injuries over the course of his first two seasons in the National Football League, but he is healthy in this year’s training camp and making impressive strides in his game.

Bears’ outside linebackers coach Brandon Staley has noticed the improvement in Floyd, particularly in how he uses his hands. Floyd used boxing in his training in the offseason and it is paying dividends thus far.

“His hands have come alive,” Staley said, according to the Chicago Tribune. “I think that was always, to me when I got here, the missing piece with him — just being able to use his speed, use his length and attack these guys with his hands. I think that he still has got a long way to go, but he’s coming. You can see it.”
