In his preseason debut, Redskins rookie Derrius Guice spent more time off the field than on.

The running back, a second-round pick out of LSU, sustained a knee injury in the first half that sidelined him for the rest of the game.

According to NFL Media, Guice has initially been diagnosed with a sprained MCL. He will have an MRI to confirm.

Guice had six carries for 19 yards in his first NFL appearance. After Washington’s 26-17 loss to New English, Guice tweeted a smiling emoji and sources later said he felt “OK.”
