#Redskins RB Derrius Guice had surgery to trim a torn meniscus this morning, sources say. He is in Pensacola meeting with Dr. James Andrews, who performed the procedure. Guice is out indefinitely, as the team considers its roster options.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 12, 2019
Please read. Actually explains what procedure was done and why. Silver lining: "this break is probably good for Guice and could get him a chance to be healthy in the second half of the season." https://t.co/PYL6rIY2FX— Hogs Haven (@HogsHaven) September 12, 2019
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.

In the likely event that Guice decides to undego surgery, he would be expected to be sidelined six to eight weeks.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 12, 2019
#Redskins RB Derrius Guice is in Pensacola today to get Dr. James Andrews to look at his knee, source said. The likelihood is that he has surgery on his meniscus. It would be a 4-6 week recovery if he has the surgery.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 12, 2019
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.
