Latest NFL News
The Washington Football Team released Derrius Guice on Friday after news that the running back had been arrested on domestic violence-related charges. The Loudoun County (Virginia) Sheriff's Office confirmed to NFL.com that Guice faces charges of one count of strangulation, which is a felony, three counts of assault and battery and one count of destruction of property. The alleged incidents occurred earlier this year on Feb. 14, March 3 and April 17 at Guice's residence in Ashburn, Virginia. Authorities were made aware of the allegations on July 22. Guice turned himself in on Friday, authorities confirmed. "On Thursday we learned of a potential domestic violence related incident involving RB Derrius Guice," the team said in a statement. "We immediately alerted the National Football League and have continued to work with them during this process. We then met with Derrius to inform him that he was excused from all team activity pending a review of this matter. This afternoon we learned that there were multiple charges filed against Derrius. Upon review of the nature of these charges and following internal discussions, we have decided to release Derrius immediately." The Washington Football Team drafted Guice in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft, but he has only played in five total games due to multiple knee injuries. Guice tore his ACL during the preseason of his rookie year and suffered a torn meniscus and sprained MCL in 2019.
An FBS school pulled the plug on fall football because of COVID-19 concerns earlier this week. Now a conference from college football's top subdivision has followed suit. The Mid-American conference canceled its 2020 season following a vote from its university presidents, the Associated Press reported Saturday. The MAC is considering playing a spring season, per the AP. The news was first reported by Stadium. "While we are disappointed to not be playing this fall, we respect the decision made by the MAC today" Central Michigan coach Jim McElwain posted on Twitter. "Our main priority is ensuring the safety of our players, staff, their families and loved ones. This is a difficult time, but we will get through it, and we'll do it together." The 12 MAC schools took a severe financial hit in July when multiple Power Five leagues dropped non-conference games. The AP reported that strain was only made worse for the conference by the need to implement expensive coronavirus protocols. The University of Connecticut, whose football program went independent just this year after seven years in FBS' American Athletic Conference, canceled its season on Wednesday. The Big Sky Conference announced Friday it wouldn't be participating in football this fall, becoming the first FCS league to do so.
