Redskins lose up to three running backs due to injuries

The Washington Redskins lost running back Derrius Guice during the first preseason match. That’s the first such case for the entire season after the player had his ACL torn.

Then, the second game, which took place on Thursday night, brought other injuries.

Byron Marshall and Samaje Perine both left the game. What’s more, they both were diagnosed with sprained ankles later.

Additionally, NFL Network informed that Marshall’s trauma will keep him unavailable for the team for 2-4 weeks that could potentially make his participation in the opening day impossible. As for the severity of Perine’s injury, it’s still unknown.

Rob Kelley currently acts as the starting running back. Chris Thompson serves as a third-down back. Marshall and Perine were anticipated to be key performers.

On Saturday, the team will get back to practice in Ashburn, and it might require bringing in another running back for the purpose of making it through the preseason.
