UPDATE 8/9/18 at 11:30 p.m.: Guice indicated in the locker room after the game that all is well:

 

Derrius Guice went into his first NFL preseason game with perhaps as much fan anticipation as any player since 2012.

In his first big play, he did not disappoint, ripping off a 34-yard scamper from midfield into the red zone:

Then, the universe evened itself out, leveling Guice with a knee injury:

After evaluation, he stayed on the sideline with his knee wrapped. Given his value to the team, he will not be seeing the field again tonight, at the very least.

The Redskins have yet to update his status and are unlikely to have a real feeling for his status until after the team returns to Richmond and has a full evaluation. While this could hold him out of future preseason action, hopefully it will leave him ready to roll in Week 1 of the regular season.
