Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice was placed on injured reserve Friday. The Redskins are hopeful Guice can return after eight weeks.

Guice visited Dr. James Andrews on Thursday for a second opinion on his ailing knee, and the famed orthopedist performed the operation, Redskins head coach Jay Gruden confirmed. Gruden said the surgery was "minor." Guice tweeted, "Don't feel bad for me!! This what I signed up! It wear and tears on your body over time! I've been doing this 15 years!! Trust the process.. head up chin up and grind"

Andrews has served as part of the Redskins' medical team and already was familiar with Guice from a torn ACL in 2018 that ended the running back's rookie season. Guice, per NFL Network, opted for a second opinion when his right knee failed to improve this week. Guice left the Week 1 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles after gaining 18 yards on 10 carries.

Without Guice, Adrian Peterson is expected to be active and carry more of the load. He was a healthy scratch at Philadelphia last week, but Gruden said he was confident Peterson would be ready to roll when his number is called. Washington's offensive line struggled at Philadelphia, but the Eagles have an exceptional front four and were one of seven defenses last season to hold opponents under 100 yards rushing per game (96.9).
