Redskins Roster Moves: Derrius Guice has been activated from Injured Reserve

The Redskins get Guice back

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

Officially Official

The Redskins have officially activated RB Derrius Guice from injured reserve today. He has been practicing with the team, and has been expected to return to the team after their bye week. Interim Head Coach Bill Callahan has been asked about Guice, and confirmed he expected Guice to be ready to return next week vs the New York Jets.

Guice lost his rookie season when he tore his ACL in his first preseason game against the Patriots. He worked his way back, and was the #1 RB Week 1 when Adrian Peterson was a healthy scratch. Guice started the game, but went out with another injury. He tore his meniscus, and had to have another surgery. Guice went to IR, but was expected to be able to return this season, and now he is back.

This move was expected yesterday when the Redskins released RB Craig Reynolds, who is expected to be re-signed to the practice squad. The team is also hoping to get Chris Thompson back after the bye. He has been dealing with turf toe for the last few weeks.
