Patriots to adjust Brady's contract with added incentives

The diagnosis ends his rookie season nearly immediately after it had begun.

A suspected MCL tear for Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice is a torn ACL after an MRI, according to various reports.

Guice left at the end of the first quarter of Washington's preseason opener Thursday night against the Patriots after he was tackled following a 34-yard gain that was negated by a penalty. It's not clear whether that previous injury made him more susceptible to the torn ACL, but there were National Football League teams that did extra evaluation on his medical status leading up to the draft because of that knee.

Brady, 41, would likely have to stay healthy for a full season to earn the full $5 million in performance bonuses.

Numerous emails admitted into evidence Wednesday showed how Manafort personally directed wire transfers from such accounts. Gates replied that "I made many mistakes over many years" before stepping down from the witness stand.

"Grabbing him in the second round was obviously a great treat for us, but character was never a concern", coach Jay Gruden said recently, pointing to injuries and the quality of running backs as reasons for Guice falling in the draft. He finished with six carries for 19 yards in his debut. The three-for-all now drops to a two-for-all consisting of third-year back Rob Kelley and sophomore Oklahoma product Samaje Perine if the Redskins opt against bringing in outside help.

In 2017, Washington was bit pretty hard by the injury bug. He also improved his run grade from 45.3 - the lowest mark among running backs from Weeks 1-10 - to 65.3.

"Had a tough time tryna hold back the tears this morning when I got the news", Thompson tweeted after Guice's injury was revealed.
