Guice was expected to be the Redskins' starter after they selected him 59th overall in the draft. But he underwent an MRI on Friday morning where the more serious injury was discovered. Guice's injury likely puts an even greater emphasis on Washington's passing game, especially considering the creative ways in which Gruden can try to replicate the run game with passes to Thompson, Jamison Crowder and Jordan Reed. He had suffered a hyperextended knee (yes, the same knee) at LSU but opted against surgery, also per Rapoport.
We know Chris Thompson figures to be a big part of the backfield workforce, but he's also coming off a season-ending injury a year ago with a fractured right fibula Other candidates include Byron Marshall or Kapri Bibbs, who have some big-play ability. He finished with six carries for 19 yards in his debut.

However, Kelley's fallout ensued in Year 2 of the young back's career.
In 2017, Washington was bit pretty hard by the injury bug.
The rest of the running back depth chart leaves much to be desired. Guice's left leg laid limp on the ground. And losing a year of development with a running back pushes the Redskins' pursuit for a strong rushing attack another year down the road.
