Patriots, Brady close to deal to restructure contract - again

Patriots, Brady close to deal to restructure contract - again

The competition is now wide open after Guice's season-ending injury.

Washington Redskins rookie running back Derrius Guice is out for the season after tearing the ACL in his left knee, a significant blow to the ground game. He was initially reported to have been diagnosed with an MCL sprain.

Brady dressed but didn't play in Thursday night's 26-17 win over the Washington Redskins, and there's no guarantee he would have taken the field even if he was fully healthy, considering he sat out three of the previous four preseason openers.

Selected in the second round of this year's draft, former LSU standout Guice went down awkwardly as he was tackled from behind on an impressive 34-yard scamper negated by a holding penalty.

Washington averaged 90.5 yards rushing last season, fifth-worst in the NFL.

Rookie Derrius Guice's much-anticipated debut season in the National Football League is already over before it began.

Now, the Skins will move forward with Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley, as well as pass-catching threat Chris Thompson, who is still recovering from a fractured fibula he suffered on November 19. Thompson got 64 carries in his 10 games past year, and could be looking at a similar number of rushes per game with Guice out for the season. But can he run with the power and explosiveness that Guice was expected to bring? Tight end Manasseh Garner also suffered a torn ACL.
