Derrius Guice is ailing again, suffering a hamstring injury that could force him to miss the start of training camp

Watch NFL games now on fuboTV.

But given Guice's injury history -- he missed his entire rookie season with a torn ACL -- how concerned should Redskins fans be about their young running back?

"How concerned am I? Zero," said Eric "EB" Bickel of The Sports Junkies Monday. "It's not a big deal, it's not a bad injury. Just rest it."

However, a couple of the other Junkies disagreed with EB.

"What has Guice done? All he's done is been injured," said John-Paul "JP" Flaim. "Right now, I would put him in the injury-prone column. There are guys that just get in the league and they get injured all the time."

"He was injury-prone at LSU, too. It's not just the Redskins," added John "Cakes" Auville. "It's a red flag on him, it just is ... he's not progressing the way you'd expect him to."

"My brain's gonna explode, it's a strained hamstring!" EB responded. "It's just a standard injury, it's not a big deal. There's no reason to think it's chronic." 

"A torn ACL's not a chronic injury, it's a fluke thing ... And a strained hammy is just a normal, sports injury."
