Redskins' Derrius Guice suffered tweaked hamstring

Less than two weeks from the start of training camp, Derrius Guice is ailing again.

The Redskins running back tweaked a hamstring several weeks ago, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported, per sources informed of the situation. Guice has been sidelined this offseason while rehabbing the ACL he tore last preseason.

Pelissero added that Guice does not believe the hamstring is a big deal. Still, it's another setback in a career that for all intents and purposes has yet to begin. Guice, after the Redskins selected him in the second round of the 2018 draft out of LSU, had an impressive training camp before suffering a season-ending knee injury in the first quarter of Washington's preseason opener.

That prompted the Redskins to bring in Adrian Peterson, who re-signed this spring following a 1,000-yard output and figures to be the lead back heading into the season.

Guice was expected to be available for the beginning of training camp and compete for playing time. Now he's competing with another injury.
