Derrius Guice out ‘indefinitely’ following meniscus surgery

Derrius Guice

Derrius Guice underwent knee surgery on Thursday to repair a torn meniscus, and it is unclear when the Washington Redskins running back will be able to return.

Guice visited with Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion and ended up having his meniscus trimmed. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that he will be out indefinitely.

Guice, who missed his entire rookie season last year after tearing the ACL in his left knee, injured his right knee in Washington’s season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles last week. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Thursday that he is expected to miss 6-8 weeks.

Guice also suffered a knee injury while in college at LSU, so this has unfortunately become a recurring theme for the 22-year-old. Now that he is expected to miss several games, it will be interesting to see how Washington proceeds with Adrian Peterson. The 34-year-old was a healthy scratch in Week 1 and appears to have fallen completely out of favor with head coach Jay Gruden, but the Redskins suddenly have a need for him the same way they did a year ago.
