He was initially reported to have been diagnosed with an MCL sprain.

Guice left at the end of the first quarter of Washington's preseason opener Thursday night against the Patriots after he was tackled following a 34-yard gain that was negated by a penalty.

While the Redskins have quality depth at running back thanks to the likes of Kapri Bibbs, Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley, the idea was to pair a first-round talent like Guice with Chris Thompson right away.

Before his injury, Guice was having a strong training camp, taking snaps with the first unit and displaying the same "violent" running style that he was known for.

Kelley has earned praise from Jay Gruden, and Perine is said to be looking better than he did last season, when he averaged 3.4 yards per carry and didn't factor much into the receiving game.

But now, Guice will spend the 2018 season rehabbing. The Redskins were the most injured team last season when accounting for the impact of the players lost, according to Football Outsiders.

Washington has also had a recent history of their high-profile draft picks not being able to stay healthy.

Brady's current contract runs through the 2019 season, and Schefter's report did not indicate that current talks would include an extension.

Tom Brady, Quarterback, New England Patriots, and Founder of TB12, speaks at the Milken Institute 21st Global Conference in Beverly Hills, California, U.S., April 30, 2018. The Redskins also announced tight end Manasseh Garner suffered an ACL injury during Thursday's game and will also miss the 2018 season.
