Gruden: RB carries 'will probably go through' Derrius Guice

Coach Jay Gruden said Monday that running back Derrius Guice — a second-round draft pick who has yet to play a regular-season game — could have an even larger role than expected in the Redskins’ offense.

" is about Derrius Guice, how much we faith we have in him to carry the ball,” Gruden said. “We drafted him for a reason. We feel like he can be a first-, second- and even third-round back if needed. The offense, carries-wise, will probably go through him, pretty much.”
