Redskins Injury Update: Derrius Guice has surgery to trim torn meniscus, out indefinitely

Not good

NFL: Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

UPDATE: Guice had surgery this morning to trim his meniscus, he is out indefinitely...

We've been waiting on an update on Redskins RB Derrius Guice' knee injury, and we finally got one this morning. He is in Florida today to meet with Dr. James Andrews to get a 2nd opinion on his torn meniscus. Dr. Andrews did the ACL repair surgery on his other knee last year.

Initial reports said Guice might attempt to us stem cell therapy to avoid surgery. If surgery is required, Guice could be out 4-8 weeks, not good for someone who already missed their entire rookie season due to another knee injury.

Guice got the start last week, and last season's Redskins Offensive Player of the Year Adrian Peterson was a healthy scratch. AD won't be on the sidelines this week, and is the team's #1 RB again while Guice is out.
