Washington.- Redskins from Washington suffered the loss of rookie runner Derrius Guice for the rest of the year, due to a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his leg.
The injury was during the first preseason game played by the capital team against the New England Patriots, who won by a score of 26-17, said a statement from the National Football League (NFL) on its website.
The loss of Guice means that Redskins head coach Jay Gruden will have to choose between Samaje Perine and Rob Kelly to be his starting runner for the regular season.
Derrius Guice was chosen in the second round of the past Draft of the NFL by the Redskins, from the State University of Louisiana (LSU), where he played for three years in the American College Football.
In his last year at LSU, Guice scored one thousand 251 yards on 237 carries for an average of 5.3 yards per attempt and scored 11 touchdowns over the road.
