UPDATE: Torn ACL for Derrius Guice, season over.

Redskins fans held their breath last night as they saw rookie RB Derrius Guice break off a nice run, then go down hard at the end of it.

He was seen on the sidelines getting medical attention and then walking with a limp. He said he was fine after the game, but Head Coach Jay Gruren said he would still need an MRI today to be sure.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Guice's initial diagnosis was a sprained MCL. Guice said his foot landed awkwardly and he hypextended his knee a little bit. This is the same knee that affected him during his last year at LSU.

The Redskins had big expectations for Guice in their offense this year, and he has impressed coaches, players, and fans since joining the team. Any injury hurts his development with the team, and now he waits another year to make his debut in the NFL.

The Redskins return to training camp practices tomorrow, and will host the New York Jets from Sunday-Tuesday. The Redskins then host the Jets for their second preseason game on Thursday.
