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].”

The Cincinnati Bengals have placed tight end Tyler Kroft on injured reserve, effectively ending his season, as he will be unable to return from a broken bone in his foot, as the team had hoped, according to ESPN’s Katherine Terrell.

In a corresponding move, the Bengals promoted linebacker Brandon Bell off of their practice squad to fill the roster spot made available when Kroft was sent to IR.

Kroft, who is in a contract year, is expected to be healthy in time for free agency in the spring.

Kroft hauled in 42 passes for 404 yards and seven touchdowns while filling in for Tyler Eifert in the 2017 season.
