Washington Redskins' rookie running back Derrius Guice's season before it ever started. The Washington Redskins running back will miss the entire 2018 season after suffering a torn ACL just minutes into the team's first preseason game against the New England Patriots on Thursday.

Early Friday, the initial thought was Guice had suffered a sprain.

The Redskins said Guice, who was taken in the second round of the National Football League draft out of LSU, was expected to make a full recovery and was looking forward to playing in 2019.

Several scouts had questioned Guice's durability going into the draft.

In camp, Guice had been splitting first-team carries with Kelley and Samaje Perine. He was set to be part of a reworked offense after the Redskins traded for quarterback Alex Smith and signed wide receiver Paul Richardson.

The documents acknowledge that the duo had an "informal arrangement", but that Pitt has not lived up to that agreement. Actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie attend the premiere of "The Normal Heart" in New York, NY, U.S., May 12, 2014.

Still, Guice's injury continues the streak of bad luck for the organization.

Washington has also had a recent history of their high-profile draft picks not being able to stay healthy.

"Had a tough time tryna hold back the tears this morning when I got the news", Thompson tweeted after Guice's injury was revealed.

The team also announced that tight end Manasseh Garner will miss the season with an ACL injury sustained in Thursday night's game.

The 41-year-old's current deal has two years worth $41 million left that runs through the 2019 campaign, which has left the door open to what the Patriots will do after this upcoming season as he will be in his final year.
