Saturday, Aug. 11

The Redskins begin life without Derrius Guice today as training camp resumes in Richmond. Jay Gruden said in his pre-practice presser he has faith in the rest of Washington's running back group

While Guice may be out for the year, Gruden provided some encouraging news on the Redskins' other top rookie.

Gruden also gave some updates on others injured in Thursday's night loss at New England. 

In case you needed more confirmation, the Redskins officially placed Guice on IR today, along with several other roster moves. 

And as Gruden predicted, Payne is practicing! 

Another day, another injury for the Redskins offense, as wide receiver Robert Davis has been carted off the field. 

Friday, Aug. 10

The Redskins did not practice Friday, but received by far the worst news of the preseason so far: Derrius Guice will miss the 2018 season after tearing his ACL against the Patriots Thursday.

Initial reports indicated Guice had merely sprained his MCL, but an MRI on Friday confirmed the injury was far more serious. Rick Snider calls the loss of Guice a "massive gut punch," arguing the LSU product is irreplaceable in the Redskins backfield. 

Aside from the devastating Guice news, the Redskins also learned Matt Ioannidis will likely miss time with a knee injury suffered on Thursday, but should be ready by Week 1.

The Redskins' ground game took a major hit Friday, but Maurice Harris likes Washington's passing attack, lauding the team's depth at wide receiver during an appearance on 106.7 The Fan's "Grant & Danny." 

The Redskins return to practice tomorrow, and the team has adjusted the schedule for the next few days of training camp.

Thursday, Aug. 9

The Redskins began their four-game preseason slate on Thursday against New England, ultimately falling to the Patriots 26-17. Jay Gruden elected to rest most of the starters, including quarterback Alex Smith

Of the regulars that played, several of them picked up injuries. Highly-touted rookie running back Derries Guice was forced to depart after appearing to injure his knee on a 34-yard run (which was called back on a holding penalty), and defensive lineman Matt Ioannidis also injured his leg after showing off a new sack dance

Wednesday, Aug. 8

The Redskins are traveling to New England today. They’ll get their first live action of the preseason Thursday night at 7:30 p.m.

Tuesday, Aug. 7

Jay Gruden revealed that Josh Doctson, in addition to bruising his shoulder, also bruised his heel on the same play in practice last week.

When you think of coaches comparable to Jay Gruden, Nick Saban obviously comes to mind. No?

"I'm going to be very honest," Jonathan Allen tells 106.7 The Fan. "I feel like they're very similar in a lot of ways."

Monday, Aug. 6

The third week of Redskins training camp is officially underway! Jay Gruden began the morning by tempering expectations that Trent Williams will be ready to go for the first preseason game on Thursday.

On the other hand, Gruden provided some good news on another offensive lineman recovering from injury. 

RELEASED: The First (Unofficial) Depth Chart

With Thursday's game against New England in mind, the Redskins aren't practicing in pads today.

On with The Sports Junkies this morning, Craig Hoffman said that Derrius Guice probably won't get double-digit carries on Thursday, but added that the rookie's already "solidified himself" as the Redskins' top running back.

Speaking of Guice... Josh Norman says if it were up to him, he'd draft Guice over Giants rookie Saquon Barkley

Several players are working on the conditioning field today, including Josh Doctson and D.J. Swearinger. 

Meanwhile, the Redskins have made a minor transaction.

Some friendly fire on the practice field this morning, as Ryan Kerrigan shook up wide receiver Maurice Harris. Harris had one of the highlights of training camp so far with a ridiculous catch in practice on Sunday. 

Speaking of highlights, Vernon Davis showed that he's still got some bounce with a leaping grab over Fish Smithson. 

Undrafted free agent Danny Johnson also put Redskins fans on notice with a great interception this morning. 

Today's morning practice has concluded, and here are The Fan columnist Rick Snider's thoughts on the session.

After practice, the Redskins provided these injury updates.

And once again, an afternoon walkthrough was cancelled due to weather.
