Rookie running back Derrius Guice is likely to miss some time after reportedly suffering a sprained MCL in the Washington Redskins' preseason opener against the New England Patriots on Thursday.

Guice will undergo an MRI exam to confirm the extent of the injury, which was reported by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Before heading to the locker room, Guice had carried the ball six times for 19 yards.

A smiling Guice was seen afterward in the locker room saying "All is well."

The former LSU star was taken in the second round, 59th overall, by Washington after he slid in the draft.

In three years at LSU, Guice had 503 offensive touches for 3,324 yards (6.6-yard average) and 32 scores. Penn State's Saquon Barkley, the first running back selected this year, had 773 touches for 5,038 (6.5 avg) and 51 scores over the same span.
