Fantasy fallout: Derrius Guice will miss rookie season due to tore ACL

Tom Brady's contract will get a major boost in value if the five-time Super Bowl champion posts another strong season in 2018, according to a report Thursday.

Early Friday, the initial thought was Guice had suffered a sprain.

On Guice's sixth carry of the night, he was tackled from behind and stayed on the ground. He had suffered a hyperextended knee (yes, the same knee) at LSU but opted against surgery, also per Rapoport.

UPDATE: The Redskins confirmed Guice tore his ACL.

In Weeks 11-17, Perine averaged 2.65 yards after contact per attempt, ranking 12th among running backs with at least 100 attempts in said span.

Injuries are one of the worst parts of sports.

Guice injured his left knee at the end of a first-quarter run in Thursday's preseason opener against the New England Patriots.
