Roster moves had to be made as the injuries have started piling up already. RB Derrius Guice is being placed on IR for the second year in a row for a knee injury that required surgery. The Redskins probably hope to get him back later in the season. Guice had surgery to trim his meniscus and was listed as out indefinitely after an initial 4-8 week estimate.
Defensive lineman Caleb Brantley will also go to IR after re-aggravating a foot injury he suffered this summer. Gruden described it as a mild Lisfranc, which seems impossible for a 300+ lb NFL lineman.
Who isn't going to IR today? Colt McCoy...
Redskins moving running back Derrius Guice to injured reserve, per source. Had knee surgery earlier this week.— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) September 13, 2019
Why no IR for Colt McCoy? Getting closer. Might be back after third game. If feel close no need to IR now ...— John Keim (@john_keim) September 13, 2019
