Derrius Guice is off to a slow start.

The Redskins running back tweaked his hamstring while rehabbing the ACL injury that caused him to miss all of 2018-19, according to a report from 106.7 The Fan, which cites unidentified league sources. Although the injury occurred several weeks ago, Guice could miss the start of training camp, that report states.

Guice didn't take a single regular season snap in 2018-19, as he tore his ACL in the first quarter of Washington's first preseason game. The 22-year-old ran for more than 1,000 yards in each of his last two years at LSU and was expected to play an important role in the Redskins' offense, but Washington recovered from his incident quickly.

One-on-One: Why we like these WRs (and RB) as fantasy football sleepers

One-on-One: Why we like these WRs (and RB) as fantasy football sleepers Yardbarker NFL writers Michael Tunison and Chris Mueller address some of the hottest issues in the league. This week's topic: Who are some enticing fantasy football sleepers for 2019? Mueller: I am terrible at fantasy football. That’s not so much a lament as it is a statement of fact, and I suppose an invitation to take everything I’m about to say with a grain of salt. Despite my overwhelming lack of success with it, I love to play, and as such I am already trying to gain an edge for the 2019 season. Part and parcel with that is identifying the next breakout star in the fantasy world. Candidates usually fall into one of a few categories.

The Redskins responded by signing the then 33-year-old Adrian Peterson, who surprisingly rushed for 1,042 yards and seven touchdowns. But they have since solidified their backfield with young talent.

Washington has other things to worry about though, as last season's starting signal-caller Alex Smith went down with a serious leg injury of his own late in the year and won't be returning soon. Colt McCoy, Case Keenum and 2019 draft pick Dwayne Haskins will all be given a chance to earn a spot under center in Week 1.

Texans' Jadeveon Clowney could skip training camp after failing to get new deal, report says.
Clowney, 26, has spent his entire career with the Texans after being selected with the No. 1 overall pick of the 2014 draft. The All-Pro defender has logged 29 career sacks en route to three consecutive Pro Bowl selections. But, now he's missing out on a major payday, unlike other franchise tagged players like San Francisco's Robbie Gould and Atlanta's Grady Jarrett, who both inked four-year deals Monday.
