Redskins place Derrius Guice on IR, sign 3 players

The rooks season is over before it started

NFL: Washington Redskins-Training Camp Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Redskins announced several roster moves following Thursday night's injury-filled preseason loss to the New England Patriots. Two players went on IR, one was waived/injured, and three players were signed.

The biggest move is obviously Derrius Guice going to IR after tearing his ACL in the 1st quarter on a beautiful run. Guice's loss is a body blow to the Redskins and the fans who had sky-high hopes for the rookie RB this year. The Redskins could now be looking at a RB by committee situaion with Rob Kelley, Samaje Perine, Chris Thompson, and Byron Marshall/Kapri Bibbs according to Jay Gruden.

TE Mannaseh Garner was also placed on IR with a torn ACL. FB Elijah Wellman, whose holding penalty brought the run that Guice was injured on back, was waived/injured. There was no injury reported post-game. The dream of a FB is over again.

The Redskins also signed three players today. TE J.P. Holtz, LB Jeff Knox and DL Jalen Wilkerson were added to Washington's roster.
