Derrius Guice took the ball Thursday night, clutching it close, then started to run across the Mercedes-Benz Stadium turf.
He cut left, turned right and surged forward, and as the Washington Redskins’ decision-makers held their breath, he took his first hits in more than a year.
One to the left. Another to the side. A third from the top. The right shoulder of his jersey popped off the shoulder pad. He rolled. He stood up. And everything was fine.
