Injury Knee - ACL
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Nagging injuries at LSU combined with character concerns likely led to Guice's fall to the bottom of the second round in the 2018 draft. But Washington was all too happy to scoop him up with the 59th overall pick, and he entered training camp as the favorite to serve as the team's lead runner. Guice has the speed, vision, balance and power to be a nightmare for defenders, and he was extremely difficult to take down in college once he broke through to the second level and had some space to operate. Even in close quarters he's no easy target, as he rarely allows defenders to square him up until he's ready to lower his shoulder and pound out extra yardage, something he seems to delight in doing. Unfortunately, Guice will need to wait until 2019 to strut his stuff in the NFL, as he had the misfortune of suffering a torn ACL during the first week of the preseason. Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine are left to compete for carries, with Chris Thompson handling passing downs. Read Past Outlooks

Dealing with major recovery setback
RBWashington Redskins
Knee - ACL
December 12, 2018
Guice (knee) developed an infection after his mid-August surgery to repair a torn ACL, leading to three additional procedures and a seven-week course of intravenous antibiotics, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
The infection delayed Guice's rehab process and kept him away from the Redskins' facility all season, but the rookie is finally making progress and still hopes to be available for OTAs in late May and early June. Even if his optimistic outlook doesn't come to pass, the rookie running back has some margin for error given that he'll be 13 months removed from the initial injury by the time Week 1 of 2019 rolls around. Guice's progress is sure to be a major story during the offseason, as his Week 1 availability can no longer be taken for granted.
